Mason Ryan Update, One Reason Jim Ross Did the SmackDown Segment

– Devin sent the following: WWE returns to the I Wireless Center in Moline, Illinois on March 13th, 2011 at 3 PM. Tickets go on sale February 5th, 2011 at 10 AM.

– Part of the reason WWE had Jim Ross do the off-air segment with Jack Swagger at Tuesday’s SmackDown tapings in Oklahoma was so that the crowd, Swagger’s home state crowd, wouldn’t boo Kofi Kingston in their match t hat followed the JR segment. The idea was to have Swagger put down Jim Ross, who they knew would get a big reaction.

– WWE and Mason Ryan got some big publicity this week as The BBC covered Ryan’s debut on RAW last week, complete with quotes from Ryan’s family. Ryan told the reporter before his debut that one of his goals in WWE was to go at it with John Cena in the ring and it looks like he’s going to get that opportunity.

    When i saw Mason Ryan thought that was Tyson Kidds bodyguard.

  • Man, when I first saw Mason Ryan I was like “Batista’s back?!” LMAO. AWWW man. I still think his attack had no meaning. But anyway, that’s just my opinion and a few others.

    Barry Griffiths (Mason Ryan) was indeed reported in the sports section of BBC Wales. His mum and dad were both quoted from and clips from his debut shown however they failed to mention either John Cena or CM Punk (or why he was a black power symbol out of context which has been mentioned locally).

    However they did mention The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cole Steve Austin, Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks.

    No one will give a damn as Swagger is a heel.
    More people would be confused if Swagger is being cheered as not everyone gets the “hometown” thing.

  • Jon-Jon

    Then why not put it on TV? C’mon man. That’s so stupid. People are gonna wonder now “Why are they booing their hometown guy?”
