Jim Ross Blogs On Batista’s WWE Return On Raw, Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show, Royal Rumble Hype

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:

- Monday Night Raw marks the return of Batista. Dave has been away from WWE doing film work, etc for around 4 years. His return is going to be perceived by the TV viewer/WWE fan only as big as it’s made to be tonight on live television.

The pressures on.

When will Batista be first re-introduced on the show? If it’s me, I’d consider doing it in the last segment of the broadcast.

Establish that Batista is in the arena and then facilitate him making a major impact on night one. Much like the slogan being utilized on the WWE Network, go over the top.

Certainly Batista could be paraded out to the live audience earlier and then, later, have him do a heroic run on to garner another ‘pop’ as there are always multiple ways to do something the right way in the world of entertainment and in sports.

- How WWE strategically produces tonight’s broadcast has me especially anxious to watch it. There are many stories to forward all the while getting one last shot on their franchise broadcast to sell PPV’s for Sunday’s Royal Rumble.

One thing for sure is that the Rumble Match needs a lot of promotional love tonight.

- Brock Lesnar is scheduled to be on RAW tonight and that rare appearance can’t be taken for granted and requires creating water cooler talk in some regard. Brock is too much of an investment and has too few dates to have a pedestrian appearance for Lesnar who’s preparing to face Big Show this Sunday.

Brock vs. Show needs another log on the fire.
