WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Monday’s episode of WWE RAW. Here are the highlights.
On The Undertaker’s segment with Vince McMahon:
While it was great to see The Undertaker on any WWE broadcast as we did Monday night I would have loved to have heard more from the phenom as to why he was essentially doing McMahon’s bidding against VKM’s only son at Wrestlemania Texas. The son’s blood will be on the hands of the father was an ominous message but I needed a bit more information. I am looking forward to the Shane-Taker match and the subsequent build for this special attraction contest that will be held inside HIAC at the biggest event of the year and likely before 100,000+ fans in AT&T Stadium. Yes, I still think that WWE wil have over 100,000 fans on hand for Wrestlemania Texas, a title that was first named ‘Wrestlemania Texas’ on a Ross Report months ago. That might earn me a fee tee shirt.
It will be interesting as to who Shane’s allies will be, if any, for this dramatic match that has more riding on it than many once perceived. I also don’t think that the HIAC match will go on last as that spot should be reserved for the WWE Title bout.
On WWE’s booking of The League of Nations:
It’s understood what WWE wants to accomplish with the LON faction but until the LON is put into positions that they can build their group as one powerful entity, the League of Nations won’t be hitting on all cylinders. We need to see unity in a organic sense for fans to take this group seriously and not as a temporary entity as many currently feel. I am not a LON ‘hater’ but they need to build heat/angst on an ongoing basis as 50/50 like booking does them no favors either.
I endorse WWE attempting to re-develop Ryback and make him a main event player to help their depth in that area. I’ve often said that if WWE followed the way that they booked Warrior or how WCW booked Goldberg that Ryback would likely get over to a much larger degree. Once he’s over then more traditional booking philosophies can be reinstated for him.
