Jim Ross Q&A: Cena In 5 Years, WWE Turning Bryan Heel, Disqualifications In Wrestling, More

– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section on Here are some highlights:

Do you feel there isn’t enough disqualifications in wrestling today? The rules in the genre are so vague that the disqualification finish has been rendered essentially useless.

What is your opinion on the heel/babyface commentary dynamic? I am not in tune with how pro wrestling or sports entertainment broadcasting in general is done these days. It’s missing something with all the ‘witty repartee’ and ‘banter.’ I’m not emotionally engaged by what I hear. It is a function of how talents are produced and instructed on what to do. Not my cup of tea and I’m glad it’s them and not me battling through it.

Do you think if Shawn Michaels hadnt gotten his back injury in the attitude era he woulda had a match against The Rock for the WWE title? Yes…seems as if that would have been a no brainer. Big money…amazing athletic performance.

Do you think it’s possible that WWE turned Daniel Bryan heel as a way to get fans to stop cheering for him in “protest” like they did during the main event at Survivor Series and that night in Seattle? Is Daniel Bryan really a heel? Are the Wyatt’s heels? Do we really know where all this is headed?

In 5 years time do you still see John Cena being the face of the company? He will certainly be a major face of the WWE but for WWE’s sake they better have more firepower than John on the front burner. Fans always want “new.”

    I’m sure he does, as im sure it will come to light sooner rather than later. It’s natural for someone who gets fired to lash out at the company that made axed him.

  • JAckh45

    and where did I say I knew more about the business than he? I simply stated hes had his moment and now is irrelevant. Hes out of touch and has been for some time.

  • Matthew Farrell

    I like Ross better now that he’s not blindly towing the company line anymore. I’m sure he has a lot of backstage stories of the McMahons, etc. being d*cks.

  • Yes, because you, an internet fan, certainly must know more about the business than Jim Ross does.

  • Jeffrey Bolo Bolden

    May not be “News” but he has been openly killing their every move. It’s always bad when someone from the inside speaks out like he has been recently

    I like JR more now than ever. They are going to have to bring him back to keep him quiet
