Jim Ross Blogs On 1,000th RAW, Daniel Bryan, Punk, More
Jim Ross has a new blog entry up, here are the highlights:
On The 1,000th RAW: Getting lots of questions regarding RAW 1000 on July 23 in St. Louis but, unfortunately, I have no answers. I’m not in the loop that makes creative decisions but am proudly looking forward to the milestone event. Whether I’m at that Raw or not, I’m proud of my contributions to the brand over the years and watch the show religiously every Monday night.As I said on the @WWEClasics Legends Roundtable taping, Monday Night Raw was the best thing that ever happened to my career. It was a marvelous ride and the ratings success may never be duplicated again. The talent roster was deep and talented which makes all the difference in the world. I did my share of travel, had a lot of fun and made many friends but now it’s @MichaelCole at the helm and I hope that when all is said and done that he will have the same, great memories that I have when Cole steps aside which is inevitable for us all.
On Daniel Bryan: The uneducated fans who feel that @WWEDanielBryan is too small to compete for major, WWE Titles are hopefully having professionals do their taxes. Any one that did not thoroughly enjoy Punk vs. Bryan last Sunday on PPV cannot be made happy as it relates to enjoying a wrestling match. Those who say that size primarily matters when evaluating main event talent are about a generation removed from reality.
On CM Punk’s DVD: The new, @CMPunk DVD will be released in October and the producers said that Punk has been VERY hands on this project including hand picking virtually every element that will make the final edit.
On The Next Legends Roundtables: Enjoyed taping two Legends Roundtable shows Wednesday night in Stamford, Ct hosted by Mean Gene and with the panel consisting of Michael Hayes, Pat Patterson, newcomer Road Dog, who contributed a great deal, and myself. Monday Night Raw Memories will air in early July just ahead of Raw’s 1000th broadcast. The topic of Hardcore Wrestling, of which Patterson detests and which he makes ABUNDANTLY CLEAR on the program, airs sometime in October. Let’s just say that Pat isn’t a big, Abdullah the Butcher fan. Both shows were fun and had plenty of debate and entertaining discussion. @WWEClasics really does a stellar job in producing and editing these shows. These are among my favorite projects on which to work these days.
