JR Blog: His One-Man Shows, The Undertaker vs. Undisputed Champion?, The Shield, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on Here are some highlights:

– Follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ for the latest news that will be released later today (Monday) on my first USA one man show entitled ‘Jim Ross: RINGSIDE!’ My first of several 2014 shows will emanate from NYC and the venue, date and ticket info will be released today by Live Nation who will be promoting our shows.

I do know that tickets for the New York City inaugural event will go on sale this week. It’s an exciting time for my family and me as I am looking forward to an exciting and rewarding 2014. Another adventure begins…phase two.

– Been asked a great many times if I was going to be on or at RAW in OKC tonight and the answer is no but I will be watching from our home in Norman, Oklahoma. I hope WWE has great success in my home state and RAW, especially, gets a much needed ‘win.’

– Another frequently asked topic concerns the potential of Hulk Hogan at WM30. I brought this up several weeks ago when his TNA contract expired as feel that Hulk could add to WM30 if strategically utilized and that doesn’t mean in a wrestling match. That would not be an option for me but there are endless, creative ways in which to use one of WWE’s all time biggest stars at their biggest event of the year and most earmarked WrestleMania since WM20.

– If the WWE and World Title are unified prior to WM30, apparently that is what is going to happen at the TLC PPV, then the biggest match currently, on paper at least for me at WM30 would be the Undisputed Champion vs. The Undertaker in a Title vs. The Streak match. Perhaps something else will get hot between now and April but as of today, unless more alums are brought back meaningfully, that seems to be the best main event available on the current roster.

– Another Twitter topic brought to my attention…The Shield has been a tremendous addition to WWE since their debut. I saw them all evolve in NXT and know that each of the trio has a significant upside. All three of them without question. But let’s not anoint The Shield just yet as the next Evolution much less the bench mark for all wrestling entities, The Four Horsemen. The Shield simply has not had the time to build that body of work in an era of little depth that may well preclude them from being together long enough to even approach what Evolution or the Horsemen accomplished.

    Wow. Me and Jim Ross think alike. I was just mentioning on a Youtube discussion on the possibility of a Cena/Taker match at Wrestlemania. Streak vs title. To me, that would be the only match available that would carry that same weight as Hogan/Andre at Wrestlemania III. The scenario would be almost identical. John Cena has dominated WWE as an irresistible force(like Hulkamania in the mid 80s.) The Undertaker has dominated Wrestlemania as an immovable object (like Andre’s 15-year undefeated streak *and yes I know he wasn’t.* Just saying for kayfabe purposes.)

    With all the people that Undertaker has defeated at Wrestlemania it would seem impossible for Cena to get the win over Taker. It took him two tries to beat The Rock. There is so much story that could be built off of this. This would be the challenge of John Cena’s career and could be the defining moment of his career. Everyone would tune in to watch it and no one could really predict the outcome. Will Taker job to Cena and end the streak or will they let Taker get one last run at champion before he calls it quits?

    This match has to happen. It’s exactly what WWE needs right now. Hogan/Andre to the WWF, Wrestlemania, and pro wrestling PERIOD to a whole new level. Cena/Taker could have a similar effect.
