JR blogs: Reactions to House Of Horrors match, Braun Strowman’s future, more

Jim Ross

WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to his JR’s BBQ website to comment on this past weekend’s WWE Payback pay-per-view (PPV) event. Here are the highlights:

On the House Of Horrors match:

“The controversial House of Horrors match has seemingly been received mixed reviews. I did not ‘hate’ the match at all but could see where it might not have been an ideal fit for some fans especially those that were in the arena. These type bouts are often times calculated risks when it comes to presentation. It had some of the Hollywood Backlot Brawl qualities/feel that featured Goldust vs Roddy Piper back in the day. This was apparently a challenging presentation for some fans to embrace but could it actually be much to do about nothing? I was actually surprised that Wyatt won and thought the inclusion of Jinder Mahal and his crew was timely.”

On Braun Strowman’s potential moving forward:

“Another strong outing on a major event for Braun Strowman who is being creatively managed quite well by @WWE. Strowman is a major part of the future of WWE or so it seems to me. Curious to see how WWE deals with Strowman’s popularity considering that he is being booked as a nasty, badass villain. Defiant, young males love to live vicariously through stars that they often times see on TV and if that logic is somewhat accurate, what’s there to dislike about Strowman? Braun is a monster with no apparent reverse gear.

“WWE has one of their most potentially, viable young talents that they have featured in years with this massive athlete.”

On his upcoming show in Chicago:

“Tickets for our Sunday May 21-2pm show at Zanies in Rosemont Illinois, only three miles from the All state Arena, the site of WWE Backlash later that same day, are available at VIP tickets sold out the first day but we do have Gen Adm tickets remaining.”

    If they had did the house of horrors match more like a real live camera crew following randy into this creepy house of wyatt watching their fight and going through the creepy occurances n the house (which technically they wsre really doing already) but without the cinema effect and background music, more like paranormal activity it wouldve been more realistic and I may have been more registered n the match. The whole house scene felt like a pointless promo

    I agree about Braun Strowman he being book very well. He could become WWE Unverlasial Champion anytime soon. The WWE has been looking desperately for the next big guy looks like Strowman is that guy.
