Jim Ross has returned with another blog entry on his website JRsBarBQ.com where Ross talks about The Undertaker’s return, the 1/2/12 vignettes, Daniel Bryan’s recent World Title push and more. Below are a few highlights:
JR on The Undertaker’s return: As I have said before, I feel that Taker will be a major part of WM28 defending the Streak. The Streak is a HUGE part of Wrestlemania and, arguably, as big as any element of the event. So, 1. I do not know when Taker will return or 2. who he will face on 4/1/12 in Miami. What is it about those two statements that folks don’t understand?
JR on the ongoing 1/2/12 vignettes: I don’t know who they are for. If I did, would it be wise of me to spoil the surprise?
JR on his favorite match of all time: I honestly don’t have one. I’ve called thousands of bouts over the years and SO many that were amazing for me to put a lyric to the music the talents were making. I promise all that care or ask, if I could name an all time favorite match that I would.
JR on an in-ring return of Jerry “The King” Lawler: I’d love to see Jerry Lawler be able to wrestle more on WWE TV. Performing with Jerry would help so many younger talents as I felt King’s work in 2011 with Miz was extremely helpful for Miz. If King were told tomorrow that he would no long broadcast Raw but would instead be used in the ring, he would love it. (Same goes for Booker T wrestling younger talents.)
JR on Daniel Bryan’s recent push: That Daniel Bryan gets plenty of positive, TV time and a legit opportunity to show all involved what the hard working veteran can do from bell to bell. Personally, I find any ‘size arguments’ regarding the new, World Champion to be near sighted and outdated. Plus, Bryan being verbally thrashed for being a vegan or a ‘hypocrite’ for cashing in the MITB contract earlier than WM28 has run its course. The consumers will determine if Bryan is a hit or a miss.
JR also talks about the upcoming WWE Network and its availability, Brodus Clay’s return to WWE, the return of tag team wrestling, and more. View the full blog on his website.
