JR On Fandango Prediction, Ryback Heel Turn, Wants JBL On Raw Announce

Shares 0

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

@steveaustinBSR predicts that @WWEFandango will be IC Champion within a few months. It might not take that long but I could also see Fandango winning the US Title as well at some point. Stars become stars over the long haul and even though Fandango has had an amazing few weeks and change as it relates to recognition, etc, it's how he does long term that writes his story. If Fandango can continue to grow, a key role at WM30 could be in his future and that's generally considered the yard stick.

Just because @Ryback22 is hungry for the WWE Title and the money that comes along with it why does that motive make the powerhouse a villain? Since when did ambition make one an antagonist. Antagonist display a variety of common traits, non of which I have seen yet, I stress yet, from Ryback. I do like the apparent pairing of Ryback vs. John Cena and where this matter may be heading. To me, it certainly feels fresh even though some will take exception to the fact that Cena is in the equation. It doesn't both me and I see this rivalry selling tickets and producing a reaction in the arenas.

I'm going to be interested to see what sort of reaction new, World Champ @HEELZiggler Dolph Ziggler receives on RAW Monday as it seems that Ziggy winning the championship was a popular decision last week in Jersey.

I hope that WWE adds @JCLayfield to the RAW broadcast team of @MichaelCole and @Jerry Lawler and that JBL and King can create some electricity while Cole keeps the rudder in the water captaining the ship. I like their chemistry even though I'm having to learn to like a three man broadcast crew better. We old dogs can learn new tricks.

    I love how JR bashed that NJ crowd for being disrespectful, contrary to what many IWC members say. JR was spot on! When you attend a WWE event, you are a spectator. And that “freedom of speech” retort is such a mindless comment to justify raucous behavior. Show class.

      I’m not sure why Richard omitted it, but here’s what JR said:

      “Speaking of reactions, the live events, RAWS, Smackdown, and the PPVs
      are the places fans should express themselves and not, as I wrote about
      recently, at an event like the WWE Hall of Fame. The boorish behavior of
      a loud, perhaps inebriated, minority of male fans is inexcusable and,
      believe me, I’ve heard all the excuses since writing about some of the
      attendees who acted like morons at the 2013 #WWEHOF Induction Ceremony. I
      see this behavior as a total lack of respect for all involved in the
      process not just those being jeered. Finally, the “we pay our money, so
      we can act any way that we choose” excuse is laughable….and

        JR is spot on about that NJ crowd. It’s one thing to act like an idiot during RAW, as they demonstrated but for fans to act like that during a HOF moment is just classless. The Hall Of Fame is bout paying your tributes and respects, not about shitting on people’s moment.

          The Hall of Fame was at Madison Square Garden in New York, not New Jersey but, yes, express yourself to your heart’s content at RAW, SmackDown or the house shows but for one night of the year WWE allows the fans to partake in the honouring of legends who have made contributions to professional wrestling. The sad thing is it’s almost like an IQ test is required before allowing some people into the audience.

          I hope WWE edits out the offending comments from the home releases.

    IWC are a big group of flip-floppers.

  • Make Fandango the IC champion. We all know the E doesn’t give two craps about the US title.
