JR Discusses Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H At SummerSlam, Broadcasting On NXT As Opposed To Raw Or Smackdown, More

Shares 0

Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:

-I was talking to WWE HOF'er Jerry Brisco Friday on my way back from his stomping grounds of Stillwater and we got to talking about HHH vs. Lesnar at Summerslam. We both agree that the match will likely be off the page thanks to the personal issue that is brewing and the fact that both men will be of the mindset to steal the show. I expect a smart, physical contest from two men who are comfortable in the spotlight and with pressure on them to deliver in a big way.

Some athletes thrive being in the cross hairs of the audience especially when the lights are their brightest while other main event level talents have been known to occasionally wilt under the pressure of main eventing a major PPV.

I will say that the broadcasters who get the opportunity to call the HHH-Lesnar bout will have every thing provided them to make the match a classic.  

-Anyone who thinks that I might actually not enjoy broadcasting a few NXT bouts and helping the young talents achieve their goals is pet coon goofy. It's d--- near insulting to think that I would rather stroke my own ego and appear on Raw or Smackdown each week rather than help a great team of young people grow as professionals and, hopefully, contribute to the long term success of the company of which I am loyal.

    I feel like Lesnar will look weak if he loses to HHH after losing to Cena earlier this year…0-2 from such a hot commodity? How are we supposed to take him seriously for the remainder of his time here if that happens? If he'd beaten Cena, I could accept some kind of screwy finish to lose to HHH, but not 2 losses in a row in his only 2 matches so far.

    I think JR's style on NXT suits the show better. I actually caught an episode for the first time and didn't know what I was watching. I like the camera format, the arena format, and the commentators. It brings a new perspective to professional wrestling, in my opinion

    HHH is in the WWE for the long haul; Brock is only there for a limited time. Brock losing to HHH won't hurt Brock in the least. But HHH losing to Brock will make it hard for us to take HHH seriously in the future. I say let Brock lose to HHH; he's getting big money anyway, so let him take the fall.
