Jim Ross Q&A: CM Punk as a Babyface, Opponents for Steve Austin, Booker T and More

– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section once again at this week. Here are some highlights:

Given that the two biggest full time stars on roster are John Cena & CM Punk it’s rather strange that they haven’t gone at it at WM. Any thoughts on this bout occuring at WM 30? I’d like to think that some day that match will occur at WrestleMania. Time will tell. Don’t see it this year though for some reason.

I know this a long shot but if they asked you would you call one last match at wm30 so your fans could see and hear you one last time. That isn’t a decision that is up to me. That’s 100% a WWE call.

If Austin’s career wasn’t cut short due to his neck injury, who would you have like to have seen him match up with, either past or present roster? Punk, Bryan, HHH, Orton, etc. Lots of likely candidates.

Any reason we don’t see Booker T wrestle anymore..insight? I don’t know but it’s likely a mutual decision or Book may have injury issues to address.

What’s your opinion on CM Punk being face? Don’t you think that he’s better as a heel or as a tweener? Also, do you think that Paul Heyman’s tweet about Randy Orton is a teaser to a possible Randy Vs Brock at WrestleMania 30? I’m not a big ‘tweener’ guy. Heyman knows how to play the fanbase. Obviously, Lesnar will be back soon as WM30 approaches but in what role, I don’t know.

    Or maybe they think “We had over 6 + months of Cena v Punk… lets give it a rest for a year…”

    If anything, The Rock had more of an Impact on Cenas popularity than Punk did.
    Cena was getting death threats over Winning at WM the first time round.
    With Punk v Cena, its more of a Punk v WWE kinda deal.
    Cena is the face of the company, and Punk is rebelling against it. Didnt really effect Cena too much in pop stance.

    It’s true, tweeners are over-rated, and they never last more than a month or 2 before becoming full fledged heels or babyfaces. There’s no such thing as a long term main event tweener, because after a while fans would stop caring. It’s the most over used word in the IWC.
