JR Blog: Old School Raw, Michael Cole, Roddy Piper’s Segment



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:

Monday’s Old School RAW: “Even though I felt that I was a little rusty on commentary, I had a super time working with King and being back at ringside. It’s hard to simply walk away from something that’s in one’s DNA and that has been such a prominent part of one’s life for four decades. It had been 13 months since I last called a wrestling bout but after listening to the show after I arrived home on Tuesday it seemed to go o.k. I’ve never called a perfect bout and likely never will be the goal is always be work diligently to be better the next time than one was the last time. Finding or residing in one’s comfort zone is the kiss of death”

Michael Cole’s Character: “Lots of fans have sent me emails and Tweets, @JRsBBQ, regarding Michael Cole’s performance during the Swagger-Bryan bout and be assured that Michael was simply doing his job and embellishing upon his new, antagonist persona. There are no issues here I can assure you. If I helped folks dislike Cole’s new persona then I accomplished one objective it would seem.”

Rowdy Roddy Piper’s Segment On RAW: “Roddy Piper arguably did more in his brief albeit impactful time on Raw to promote the Survivor Series main event of Orton vs. Barrett w/ Cena as the special referee than anyone has done on Raw or elsewhere since the storyline began. Awesome job by Piper who can still be ‘money.’ Roddy looked better than I have seen him in years and has made some important, life style changes that were evident when speaking with him and subsequently watching him perform. In my opinion, Roddy Piper stole the show Monday at Raw. FYI, Roddy’s son Colt is still actively pursuing a career as a MMA fighter of which has my interest. Keep an eye out for Colt Toombs.”
