Jim Ross posted a new blog entry on his official website with his thoughts on this week's WWE Monday Night Raw. Before we go to the highlights, I would like to encourage you to check out JR's BBQ products. I've had his sauces and they have my endorsement.
Below is an excerpt:
@WWEDanielBryan vs. @WWERollins was one of the best bouts on RAW in many moons. This was excellent from start to finish, an announcer's dream really, and is a great match for NXT athletes or those wanting o make it to WWE Development to study. Both the winner and the loser improved their perception and enhanced their personas when this match ended.
Orton/Bryan dynamic. I'm intrigued. Anxious to see how it plays out.
AJ Lee's impassioned promo was her best ever, for my BBQ sauce anyway, & her segment with Kaitlyn was the most compelling Diva segment that I can recall in quite some time.
John Cena's promo. Loaded with passion and realism. Cena seemed genuinely pissed. Passion sells tickets and PPV's.
Wyatt Family video #3. Another great, creative production building anticipation for the pending debut of Bray Wyatt and his "Family." It doesn't bother me when fans on Twitter @JRsBBQ compare Bray Wyatt with Waylon Mercy no more than it did when fans compared Waylon Mercy to 'Cape Fear's' Sam Cady.
Older fans can still remember Ric Flair being compared to Buddy Rogers way back in the day. More recently, or Goldberg compared to Austin or Ryback compared to Goldberg.
Product placement. I enjoyed the Vickie/Maddox/Mr McMahon bit 'sponsored' by Hardee's. Got to say that I was envious as I wish I could afford a JR's BBQ sauce piece of business such as Hardee's bought here during the heart of grilling season. Funny stuff nonetheless.
Antonio Cesaro. Had the best, short Sin Cara match that I can recall and got a nice win in the process. I'm a fan of Cesaro's work and feel he can evolve into a main event level talent in WWE. Cesaro's skill set is loaded with subtle things which arguably makes one take a longer route to reach the top. Cesaro's another talent that I would covet if I ever started a wrestling territory....which I'm not.
Dolph Ziggler. Happy to see the World Champ back. @HeelZiggler return lacked typical Ziggler flair but I'm sure that he will more than make up for that perception come Sunday in Chicago on PPV. WWE getting Ziggler back is timely to say the least.
