JR Discusses Raw's Three-Hour Format, CM Punk's Next Pipe Bomb, Daniel Bryan's Improved Persona, More

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

-The three hour Raws are going to be daunting animals with which to deal. An impossible mountain to climb? Absolutely not even thought some 'experts' already have those thoughts. I'm not in that group and feel that the three hour Monday Night Raw broadcasts provide the potential to get more talents exposure, to rebuild the tag team scene, to provide Divas with more match time and to slow down the storytelling process so that we fans have the time to process the information that we hear and see. 

-So, unlike some, I'd prefer to give the new format a chance to succeed rather than behead it after two weeks which seems knee jerk and senseless. Any thing 'new' generally needs tweaking and this particular situation isn't any different. That's not an indictment but merely a statement of fact.

-Some fans demanding @CMPunk to have another pipebomb promo will likely get one down the road but Cincy wasn't the time nor the place. I thought Punk had a great night on air and his verbal jousting with @Jerry Lawler entertained me.

-Regarding the WWE Title, Punk told many truths which might not sit well with some. I am an old school believer that nothing in WWE is more important than the WWE Title. Some personal issues are on the same level often times but nothing should be MORE important than the WWE's premier championship. That's my two cents on that matter.

-Does Daniel Bryan ever have a bad night? Bad match? Bad promo? He certainly hasn't that I can recall. WWE is lucky to have Bryan on their roster and the two entities have formed an amazing fit when, in the early part of Bryan's WWE tenure, I'm sure that some thought the relationship wouldn't last. Now Daniel Bryan is one of WWE's most valuable assets. He's a dream for management to have on their roster. No one that I can recall in recent years has improved their verbal skills and overall on air persona as Daniel Bryan.
