Jim Ross Posts His WWE Raw Thoughts, John Cena's Surgery, More


Jim Ross has a new blog entry on his official website. Below is an excerpt:

On the current path that @CMPunk is traveling, the WWE Champion and "Best in the World" aligning with @HeymanHustle Paul Heyman seems to be working well and will only get better...or worse depending on one's interpretation.

Obviously, Punk doesn't need a 'mouthpiece' as @RealMickFoley so accurately and passionately pointed out Monday night but the Punk/Heyman duo comprises one of the most compelling presentations that WWE has had in recent memory.

Mick's presentation Monday night was one of the year's best in ring, verbal performances and was one of the highlights of the three hour program from where I was sitting.

The WWE Referees had a better night than did the #NFL officials in Seattle. I don't expect the WWE zebras to strike any time soon for the record.

AJ Lee is evolving into an intriguing RAW GM but she has huge shoes to fill considering that men like Mr. McMahon and @RealKingRegal once filled that role so precisely.

Speaking of WWE referees, Monday night was the first time in a long time that the men in the striped shirts names were mentioned on WWE TV.

I spoke with @JohnCena Monday and took a look at his surgically repaired elbow while he was doing rehab at the arena with Dr. Amman and the elbow and John's arm in general looked gnarly. For those that don't know, doing rehab on a repaired joint like an elbow is massively painful.

In my opinion, it was highly admirable that Cena was even at RAW Monday considering the pain he was in but it speaks to the dedication and passion of the polarizing former WWE Champion who looks to be out of action somewhere between 6-8 weeks.

When Dr. Jim Andrews was able to get inside Cena's el;bow he found it to be in much worse condition than previously thought especially since John had been competing with the injury for several weeks. It was described to me that Dr. Andrews found a "junkyard" of loose debris and was amazing that Cena was able to compete in the condition the elbow was in.

Knowing Cena's mindset and his mental toughness, it's impossible to say exactly when he will be medically released to step back in a WWE ring however I'd wager a case of JR's Original BBQ Sauce that it will be sooner than anyone else that I can think of at the moment.

I loved helping Cole call the Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston bout Monday night. I thought the two, young superstars had a superb outing and that they truly maximized their in ring minutes to perfection. It was one of the better TV bouts that I have seen in quite some time. Bravo to both men.

Team Hell No, Kane and Daniel Bryan, are elevating the tag team scene and making that area more relevant by the week. The WWE Tag Team champions are becoming a valuable asset to WWE events with their unpredictable brand of entertainment and in ring skills.
