Jim Ross Blogs On WrestleMania 29, Fandango Craze, HOF Speeches, Dirt Sheets & The Rock
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog entry on JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights.
Match of the night at WrestleMania: My match of the night at WM29 was Taker vs. @CMPunk. Loved @TripleH vs. @BrockLesnar too. Tough act to follow, as I have discussed here for weeks, and going on last is always a daunting experience and it was Sunday for @JohnCena and @TheRock but they came through it well especially considering that Rock had a torn abductor muscle that he suffered early in the bout.
WrestleMania 29 DVD: I am excited to see the WrestleMania 29 DVD and hear the commentary more closely and to specifically watch the entire WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The HOF was a wonderful experience for me and my wife Jan as it seems to be every year.
HOF Speeches: I was very humbled and honored to be mentioned in so many of the inductees speeches. That was a surprise and certainly was the highlight of my entire WM29 experience.
Dirt Sheets reporting The Rocks injury: Found it pretty pathetic that many fans who seemingly believe all or most of what they read online felt that the Rock walked out on WWE Monday while missing RAW. Some people thrive on dirt and gossip…thrive may be a too nice a word…how about ‘obsess’ and believe damn near whatever they read. Rock was injured early on in the main event versus Cena but continued the match as the two men, who I signed back in the day, did the best that they could considering the situation.
Fandango Buzz: Not shocked, I wrote about it here multiple times, that Fandango had a solid outing with the great @IAmJericho Chris Jericho at WM29 notwithstanding the point that Jericho’s retaliation on Fandango Monday night on RAW was pure textbook. Young wrestlers need to take note of Jericho’s unbridled passion And realism in getting a piece of Fandango on RAW. The Fandango buzz is intriguing and it will last as long as his in ring performances hold up positively to his controversial TV persona.
WrestleMania 29 announce team: Really admired how @MichaelCole steered the ship at the announce table during the four hour PPV Sunday night and then followed it up with a stellar effort Monday on RAW. Announcing in today’s WWE isn’t easy and the volume of work is daunting. No one prepares more than Cole, that trait reminds me of me, and he makes @JCLayfield, who’s still refining his villain announcer game, and veteran Jerry Lawler better on a challenging-to-master three man team. I’d suggest that WWE make Cole, JBL and King their full time RAW broadcast team especially considering that the three hour RAW’s are tough to navigate.
