WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
Do you feel there isn’t enough disqualifications in wrestling today? The rules in the genre are so vague that the disqualification finish has been rendered essentially useless.
What is your opinion on the heel/babyface commentary dynamic? I am not in tune with how pro wrestling or sports entertainment broadcasting in general is done these days. It’s missing something with all the ‘witty repartee’ and ‘banter.’ I’m not emotionally engaged by what I hear. It is a function of how talents are produced and instructed on what to do. Not my cup of tea and I’m glad it’s them and not me battling through it.
Do you think if Shawn Michaels hadnt gotten his back injury in the attitude era he woulda had a match against The Rock for the WWE title? Yes…seems as if that would have been a no brainer. Big money…amazing athletic performance.
Do you think it’s possible that WWE turned Daniel Bryan heel as a way to get fans to stop cheering for him in “protest” like they did during the main event at Survivor Series and that night in Seattle? Is Daniel Bryan really a heel? Are the Wyatt’s heels? Do we really know where all this is headed?
In 5 years time do you still see John Cena being the face of the company? He will certainly be a major face of the WWE but for WWE’s sake they better have more firepower than John on the front burner. Fans always want “new.”
