JR On His Pick For Royal Rumble Winner, Announcing With Savage and Heyman, Vickie

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of The following are highlights:

Royal Rumble Winner: “My early pick to win the 2011 Royal Rumble would have to be John Cena. (One of my favorite Rumbles as a broadcaster was working with Taz on his first Rumble PPV. Remember to check out Taz’ new venture at”

Heyman vs. Savage in Broadcast Announcing: “Paul Heyman and Randy Savage were totally different broadcast partners for me. . . Nonetheless the two men were very different in many ways. Savage brought a wrestler’s mentality to the broadcast table whereas Heyman came as an antagonist broadcaster with a more manager-like mindset. ”

Vickie Guerrero Segment On RAW: “Strong feelings have been expressed by many individuals both enjoying the comedic exchanges and vehemently opposing such.

Personally, I find various things funny. I used to always laugh at ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ when they featured plus sized women slipping and falling on ice, etc. For some reason, large ladies taking a bump made me laugh. Does that make me a bad person? To some, it does. To most, I would like to think , it only says to them that I have a sense of humor.

Taste is a tough one to regulate. I’ve seen many, many things on pro wrestling TV show s over the decades that I could not and will not endorse. However, the ‘villainous” TV persona of Vickie G getting her comeuppance via one liners ala a ‘roast’ did not offend me, personally. Which is not to say that every one who reads this should feel the same way. “

    @tim yeah Brian Danielson is being brought in to look like a joke. You know being US champion is being completely buried and that they’re actually giving him a chance to bring prestige back to that belt!? the horror.Also J.R. is always so classy and polite about everything. Amazes me that he doesn’t get more frustrated.

    hometown hero must win,it’s inevitable. if they gonna unify the titles at mania,golden boy is vkm’s pick{we all know why{we can’t blame him,we can only suffer and wait for it to be over}. for me it would be a hugh shock{and a nice surprise}if i’m wrong

    I’d like to see someone win and it actually be surprising. Someone like Brian Danielson. Go with a story of, even though they brought him there to bury him, they can’t seem to stop his rise.

    ugh. Cena. If it were up to me I’d give the rumble to Del Rio. It would really build onto his character I think.

    I really think people are blowing this whole “Vickie is fat” thing out of the water. Like JR, I’m a big guy, and I thought the segment was HYSTERICAL!!! It really reminded me of the Attitude Era, and I hope that WWE considers that in the future. I’m just sayin’…
