Jim Ross Blogs On Steve Austin’s Return, CM Punk & Paul Heyman, Cena vs. Del Rio & More
Jim Ross has a new blog on his official website. Here are the highlights:
Steve Austin’s return: “Some fans who follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ, over 534,000, actually think that (Steve Austin) will be wrestling at WM29 which is not going to happen. Steve is rehabbing his repaired knee aggressively to be able to resume his movie work and has a film set to begin production in early 2013. This was a major knee surgery that would keep many inactive in a large part for up to one year.”
The Miz’ commentary on RAW: “I’d assume that @MikeTheMiz discovered that coming off the bench to take an extended seat at ringside for commentary is a daunting task. Miz is glib and very bright but performing a wrestling promo and doing color commentary are much different animals. Nonetheless, Miz looked good on camera which is an important facet for any TV producer to facilitate.”
Ryback’s current push: “Ryback is starting to move the emotion needle seemingly every week. The “Feed Me More” chants are growing. I only wish that I could tie that in to a JR’s BBQ Sauce promotion during the football tailgating season and on into the holidays. Hey, an entrepreneur can dream, can’t he? I can see Ryback taking the next step sooner than later on WWE TV. ”
John Cena vs. Alberto Del Rio: “Enjoyed the Cena-ADR Falls Count Anywhere bout. Physical stuff. The cheap shot drive by executed by @CMPunk was a hit…no pun intended. Plus the reveal of Punk’s ‘wheelman’ @HeymanHustle Paul Heyman was a helluva end to the three hour broadcast. ”
Paul Heyman & CM Punk’s storyline: “Heyman and Punk together is a potentially outstanding dynamic with which fans can emotionally invest. It has many potential roads to travel but associating with Heyman will certainly help facilitate Punk being looked upon by many as an antagonist.”
