Jim Ross Blog: Rumble Predictions, Alcatraz Match, Brighest Minds



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

His Pick For Royal Rumble Winner: “Come on folks, if I really thought that I knew would I spoil it for others? Hardest PPV bout of the year to predict a winner and to commentate. The story changes approximately every 60 seconds until it’s nut cutting time to decide the winner. I do expect some interesting swerves and curves during the match and am looking forward to watching it on PPV.”

CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler: “Has the chance to really be special. Would love to see 30 minutes plus between these two. Raw GM ‘referee’ stip is intriguing as well. I’m not generally a fan of ‘special referees’ but Funkhauser has my interest.”

The Brightest Minds He’s Been Around In Wrestling: “Short answer, there have been many. Vince McMahon and Bill Watts are in rarified air in my eyes. Pat Patterson, Dusty Rhodes, Paul Heyman and Jim Cornette are all amazingly gifted in that regard as well. There have been many ‘great minds’ in the biz. However, someone is ALWAYS left off a list of ‘the best’ type lists which causes consternation and debate. I’d rather not ruffle anyone’s feathers or hurt feelings just for the hell of answering a question.”

A Creative Idea He Pitched That Wasn’t Used: “Years ago, I threw an idea on the table to have an Undertaker vs. Mankind PPV bout, prior to the Boiler Room Brawl or what ever it was called, on Alcatraz Island. We couldn’t get it cleared legally at that time to do it. It was a rough idea with no final, final details and in hindsight might not have been one of my better suggestions. However, it did sound good at the time and packed plenty of ‘sizzle.’”
