JR Discusses CM Punk & Daniel Bryan, Says Dolph Ziggler Is “Main Event Bound,” Details On Steve Austin’s Latest Projects, More

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

-Thinking that @CMPunk vs. @WWEDanielBryan is a pairing that has excellent chemistry especially in today’s marketplace. These two have the most compelling issue on WWE TV for my money plus the added bonus that their rivalry gives the WWE Title added focus.

-Seems like Dolph Ziggler is about to embark on his own or so it appears from watching RAW. Whether Ziggler reminds one of Billy Gunn, Curt ‘Mr Perfect’ Hennig or anyone else from the days of yesteryear, the former college wrestler is main event bound in my view. @HEELZiggler can be a big time player and I would only encourage him to take the ball away from someone and run with it until someone forces him to change course.

-Talked to @steveaustinBSR last week. Steve spent approximately 30 days in Mexico taping ‘Redneck Island’ for CMT. He seemed pleased with the project which debuts in mid June on CMT. It’s tapped for a 10 week run. This could be the first of multiple projects with Steve and CMT in the future. Steve will be shooting some scenes for ‘Grownups 2′ starring Adam Sandler and others in July.

    JR has his ear to the ground. Ziggler is a great student of the game, just like Bryan and Punk. I get the sense that while writing this JR knew about the Orton suspension and is letting smarks know that Ziggler is getting the opportunity to demonstrate that he deserves Ortons spot.
