JR Discusses Shawn Michaels’ Role At WrestleMania, Rock vs. Cena, If He Misses Broadcasting, More

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

-Adding HBK to the equation inside HIAC w/ HHH vs. the Undertaker is intriguing. Lots of ways to analyze this development. Where will @ShawnMichaels allegiance lie or will he throw us an off speed pitch and call it down the middle? Certainly a case can be made that HBK could have lingering ‘issues’ with both ‘Taker and The Game. It makes for potentially, interesting TV leading to April 1 in Miami. 

I still hold steadfast that it’s possible for Shawn to ‘steal the spotlight’ from the other two future, HOF’ers in the match. I’m not sure how but I never question ‘Mr. WrestleMania’ at this time of the year. If a referee can become the most talked about individual in a marquis match like HIAC it is Shawn Michaels.

-@TheRock and @JohnCena continued their verbal assault on each other as they build to their long awaited main event at WM28. Expectations for this show closing match, in all probability, at WWE’s biggest, annual event continue to rise. Cena and Rock have a tall order awaiting them closing WM28 as I feel the card is strong. The professional angst to close a WrestleMania event is much bigger than many fans perceive. Some talents handle it well, and actually covet the pressure cooker environment, while others don’t.

-Do you missing broadcasting? Of course. One doesn’t do their lifelong passion, stop and not miss it. Or at least I don’t. At the same time, I have many interests and am blessed to live such a wonderful life with zero regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing about my life except I’d likely ask to not have experienced Bells palsy three times. I miss whistling.

    I just hope that The Undertaker’s streak remains perfect, if it doesn’t, then what was the point in bringing it (the streak) this far to 19-0? He shouldn’t lose at WrestleMania 28, because the streak is what most of us will remember him by… He shouldn’t lose

    What is JR’s position now thst he’s not exec vp of tr and also no longer calling matches?

    With all due respect Shawn has no buisness in hell in a cell at wrestle mania, it’s so obvious he will screw HHH, if I couldn’t beat him you won’t either, Austin should have been made the speacial referee instead.

    i agree with tyler let the man retire with his streak they let edge leave with the title

    how about 100 years of wrestlemania programs centered around the 20-0 hoo-doo? you could have 5 different wrestlers get to 19-zip and fail on 20 (sorry undertaker, the wife really loves you and wants you to win), me, l'm thinking of 100 years of programming. its just a thought for VKM is all. it does however cement the name undertaker into the record books as the FIRST 19 zip winner and the start of the so-called 20 zip hoo-doo.
