Jim Ross Predicts The Winner Of John Cena vs. R-Truth, Responds To MMA Purists

Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry on his official website, Highlights are as follows:

Tonight’s WWE Championship Match between John Cena and R-Truth: “Cena vs. Truth….WWE Title…Cena likely wins but if Truth upsets Cena as I mentioned earlier in the week the Raw deck is reshuffled considerably. Without question, this is Truth’s biggest professional opportunity ever IMO. The newly minted villain has only one chance to make an impact in his first ever, WWE PPV main event. How Truth comes out of D.C. is intriguing.”

Tonight’s World Heavyweight Championship Match between Randy Orton and Christian: “Orton vs. Christian…World Title…might be the show stealer especially now that Orton has been cleared of concussion issues. It would be interesting to see Christian win (Sheamus??) as Orton feels as if he would be a nice fit to ‘chase’ Christian for the World Title. Bottom line is that these two have the potential to have a great match. I like this paring because it can realistically go either way.”

Response to mixed martial arts purists that don’t take his opinions seriously due to his ties to professional wrestling: “MMA purists/internet geeks who enjoy damming my opinions about their beloved sport largely because I’m a ‘wrestling guy’ will someday realize that the MMA fighters who are organically able to verbalize will have a better chance to become big earners and it won’t have any thing to do with ‘cutting pro wrestling promos.’ Muhammad Ali did it quite well for many, many years although he was comfortable enough with himself to admit that watching pro wrestling as a kid helped him mold his in ring persona.”

“Ali once told me that he realized he could earn more money getting fans to buy tickets to see him lose than to see him win.”

Ross also comments on the other matches scheduled for tonight’s Capitol Punishment pay-per-view in Washington D.C. His blog can be read here.

    Dana White and Zuffa push completely bums sometimes just cause they can work a mic. Get over it MMA fucks, most of these so-called “hardcore mma fans” weren’t even fucking watching 10 years ago, fucking new jacks. I was, and not one fucking person cared about MMA on TV or locally.

  • Jimbo

    “It can realistically go either way.” OK, I’m going to assume he’s addressing the 12 and under crowd on that one.

    Except JR actually has experience in brand developing, character development and marketing which most don’t. He knows what he is talking about.

    Ya know what makes me laugh with guys like JR is that they call people who post opinions on the internet “geeks” for doing so, but completely fail to realise that that is exactly what they are doing themselves.
    JR knows about wrestling and works in the industry, its true. But when he makes his opinions known about MMA, then he isnt really any different to a guy sitting in his own home or at work posting their opinions about wrestling.

    The fact that he regularly blogs is one of the biggest signs of being an internet geek, as blogging is probably one of the geekest things you can do on the net.
