JR Names John Cena's Best In-Ring Promo, Discusses WrestleMania XXVIII Main Events, More

Shares 0

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

-Q.."Did John Cena's promo Monday night on Raw resonate with you?" It impressed me a great deal as I thought it was John's best in ring promo ever. He spoke from his heart and how that he personally feels about @TheRock whether folks agree with @JohnCena or not. I loved John's passion and expect one hell of a rebuttal this Monday night on RAW.

-The best and most productive rivalries in the genre of sports entertainment, and this goes back forever, are organic, personal issues. Yes, 'meaningful' titles are imperative, without question, but adding the personal component to a title tilt makes it even more marketable. That's what I see happening with the @CMPunk vs. @IAmJericho WWE Title bout at WM28. The WWE Title is the most coveted prize in WWE but this bout will escalate even more while  becoming a personal issue of significance. The on camera build for Punk-Jericho should rival anything that we fans have heard and seen in years.

-Neither Cena nor Rock will wilt while closing the show in Miami. Both men come from legit, athletic backgrounds where being in the starting lineup and playing in the big game was a part of their athletic DNA. Both men have intense work ethic and both perceive that they are the alpha male inside the squared circle. Obviously something has to give and watching this one play out including this Monday in Portland on Raw all the way through to the 'second bell' at WM28 truly intrigues me. 

-As far as Undertaker vs. HHH inside HIAC, one can safely say that these two future Hall of Famers have logged more WrestleMania main events than they have left. Am I saying that this is the last time that we see either HHH or Undertaker compete at a WrestleMania? No. However, no one ever beats Mother Nature which is why I think that these two, talented, dedicated and passionate veterans will have a match for the ages inside the unyielding HIAC. Both know what to do inside 'Satan's Structure" to maximize the impact of their presentation. I see two, proud men wrestling as if this could be their last WM match because no one can guarantee our tomorrows.

    I Intend to enjoy the performances of Taker, HHH, and Rocky while I can. I’m overjoyed they all can still perform at such a high level.


    I know everyone is mad at hhh vs taker, but the fact it’s a hiac had me hyped. Rock being back is great as to me he is still one if the greatest, hell I’ll even say most successful, ever!!! I luv that I’ll see it all live

    • Wes

      The only reason taker and triple h are hoax is so it covers up the sloppyness this match will have, look at last year , a finisher then they both lay sriund for 5 minutes, it was a terrible march,, everyone wants to say that Rock is taking away from young talent, think about it, taker and triple h should be the ones eveyones mad at, he’ll taker can barely make it to the road

      • Wes

        Down the entrence*,

      • DNP

        Cause phoo these young guys have no character a lot of them are plain yea taker is getting up their but give the legend some credit I’m sure he’s not gonna do a Rick flair and wrestle pass 50 young talent need this to learn from them

  • Bruno

    Cena has made better promos than that

    • Joe

      Yea but not in the PG era

  • ziggyZ

    How the heck r they gonna HAV a HIAC match at WM when it’s an open arena.

    • Will Mack

      They could just prop it up from the ground with a lift

    • Razmos01

      They obviously have that problem sorted, they are hardly going to promote a match and then turn round at mania and say “err sorry guys we cant have the match because we had no where to hang the cell”

  • Jg

    Cena promo was great for pg era!

  • Mojo

    Taker vs. HHH will be ok, Cena vs. Rock will be good. Punk & Jericho will steal the show.

    • AJG316

      Frankely all of them r show stealers

  • Wwe4L76

    Best promo? Omg
    Stupid PG. Without that, We would have many better promos then that. Stupid, stupid, stupid…. If HHH wins at WM, then its stupid x4!
    Wwe, you suck some times!

    • Ted DiBiase. The guy I feel has great talent and a lot of dusipe. I’m a bit disappointed he has a feud with a jobber like Jinder Mahal. He should be able to work in matches that last longer than a few minutes. Should be advancing past the mid-card level soon.

  • Jamie

    With Undertaker Vs HHH, Rock Vs Cena, Punk Vs Jericho, this is lookg to be the best wrestlemania ever, this is going to be hard to top next year

    • H.M.

      Unless Sting miraculously comes to the WWE within a year, and Undertaker can still go for one more WM(Sting/Undertaker), and if Stone Cold/Punk start a feud then you never know 😛

  • Maz

    I was about to say the same, I can’t remember the last time WM had a good line-up Like this.

    Punk vs y2j will steal the show
    It will be talking about in years to come Like
    Bret vs hbk, hogan vs Andre and hogan vs warrior

  • Thomas

    I honestly think Cena had a pretty sweet promo against the rock. A lot of guys dislike the character, and I say character and not the person because the guy seems like a legit hard worker/good guy. His character is just stale, specially in this era. Anyways, my point is. Cena came out, he spoke the truth, he just spoke and left like a boss. I especially love at the end he goes "keep on trending". Twitter has made a mockery out of the WWE and I hate how they promote it constantly.

    But enough about the twitter hate. Shemaus vs Bryant, Jericho vs Punk. This looks like a pretty sweet mania.
