WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry on his website JRsBarBQ.com. This time around, he talks about Sunday’s PPV and the impact it may have with Triple H involved in the main event, His new travel schedule, Cena/Punk, and Michael Cole. Below are a few highlights:

Triple H being involved in SummerSlam main event: Throw HHH into the mix as the special referee and one has the ingredients of an unpredictable Summer Slam main event that likely will have many twists and turns. I fully expect a wide variety of emotions to come out of this show.

Seeing Stone Cold again: I hope to say hello to Steve Austin while we’re in LA but if I don’t I’ll see him next week in Connecticut when we narrate three of his greatest matches for his late November DVD release.

Now that he’s on the road, how is his travel schedule?: No worries whatsoever. I now leave a little earlier for my destination and have ceased taking the ‘first flight’ out’ when returning home. Being around all the WWE personnel on the day of a live show is a blast.

On Michael Cole being a good manager: He probably would if WWE decided to go that direction with Cole. Cole’s TV persona is easy to dislike and he would likely garner plenty of antagonist attention to whoever he mentored/managed, etc.

Thoughts on the CM Punk and John Cena feud: I’ve enjoyed it and feel it has legs beyond Summer Slam. I also know that we’ve gotten tons of feedback from many older fans who have reinvested their TV time into Raw since this matter has begun. Personally, I love reality TV in general and this issue feels extremely reality based to me and, apparently, to many others as well.
