Jim Ross Blogs On Daniel Bryan’s Injury, Mark Henry’s ‘Retirement,’ Brock Lesnar & More

– Jim Ross posted his latest blog entry looking at Raw. Here are the highlights:

On Daniel Bryan: “Unfortunate that Daniel Bryan got dinged up in his match with Randy Orton. Bryan is on a roll and there is no one hotter or with more momentum in WWE than Bryan. For young talents under six feet tall, there is no one better to study than Daniel Bryan. To further that thought, that concept also works well for those over 6 feet. Or 7 feet.”

On Mark Henry: “The Mark Henry ‘retirement’ segment was Monday Night Raw gold and will go down in history as one of the all time, great Raw moments as far as I’m concerned. I’ve see a few in my time for ther record. The TV viewer’s perception of any storyline or performance is dependent solely on the execution by the talent. Great execution can overcome mediocre material and great execution can make good material great and great creative unforgettable. Mark Henry’s performance Monday night will be remembered for years and was, without question, Mark’s finest hour since we signed him in 1995.”

On C.M. Punk, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar, and Curtis Axel: “The Punk/Heyman dynamic has long legs and the verbal presentation of their issues should be priceless. Plus, this matter provides young, Curtis Axel an opportunity for more ‘rubs’ with established stars. Brock Lesnar coming out on the end of Raw was a big surprise. (I’m so happy that info was not spread throughout the internet or on Twitter Monday as a ‘spoiler.’ The only ‘spoiler’ that I like is the late, Don Jardine, if you care.)”
