Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
-I was pleasantly surprised that Sheamus won the Royal Rumble match. I’m a big fan of the tough Irishman who carries himself like a champion and is a great representative of WWE. This should be Sheamus’ biggest year ever in WWE. He’s ‘ready’ in my opinion.
-Thought Punk vs. Ziggler was the match of the night. When it was over, I was left wanting more of those two in one on one competition. The officiating was like Women’s College Hoops, eh.
-Predicted that Daniel Bryan would retain the World Hvy Wt Title Sunday night and I guessed correctly. It’s obvious that Bryan’s TV persona is evolving of which I’m enjoying as a viewer. Big time main events featuring Daniel Bryan would be fun to broadcast. He’s a wrestler with a budding attitude or so it seems.
-Yes, I enjoy the Brodus Clay presentation. No, I don’t enjoy tweets @JRsBBQ from fans who want Clay to move up in competition immediately. Many fans today, got to assume they are younger in age, have little or no patience when it comes to character development. I like Brodus Clay’s upside and am more than willing to sit back and enjoy its evolution.
-Hard for most informed fans to debate that Mark Henry didn’t have the most improved year of 2011 of anyone in WWE as the big Texan came into his own. My gut feeling is that now that Mark has tasted main event level status that he will do all he can to get even better.
