WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
– ‘RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross’ will make a stop in New Orleans at the House of Blues for a show on Thursday April 3. I’m biased but I’m thinking this is a great way to kickoff all the WrestleMania activities in NOLA for WM30. Spread the word and I hope to see many of you there for a fun evening. It’s an 18 or over show due to the venue. Ticket info coming ASAP but the date is set. I hope that you will make our show a part of your WrestleMania 30 experience while you are visiting New Orleans.
– The Warrior package was slick as no one really touches WWE TV production on matters such as this. The decision to roll Warrior out first for the upcoming Hall of Fame class was strategic as it certainly has fans talking.
– The show closing moments involving Daniel Bryan and Bray Wyatt was reminiscent of the Attitude Era as it relates to raw passion and the fans totally buying into the production.
I said it last night on Twitter @JRsBBQ that Daniel Bryan was the hottest commodity in WWE today….by far. The connection that he’s made with the audience, which more often than not, can’t be manufactured is priceless.
Daniel Bryan sitting on top of the cage and the sold out crowd chanting Yes! Yes! Yes! was Austin-esque in my eyes. The closing moments of RAW is what one always looks to achieve when formatting a TV show. That special moment that becomes a ‘moment.’
Daniel Bryan is a legit bookers dream. Highly skilled and can make anyone that he competes with appear better, no locker room issues or bad, personal habits and he’s respectful and reliable. The perfect pro. Good role model for any young talent wanting to succeed.
