JR Blog: Zack Ryder Drama, Capitol Punishment & More
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.
Ross on WWE Capitol Punishment: “WWE’s Capitol Punishment from Washington, D.C. is this Sunday on PPV. I’ll be watching from the proverbial “comfort of our own home” and am really curious to see how this one turns out. Randy Orton, who is having concussion issues, vs. Christian might well steal the show that is if Orton is medically cleared to compete.
“R-Truth upsetting WWE Champion John Cena would be interesting going forward. This is without question Truth’s biggest, professional opportunity to date. Even though Alex Riley is arguably the underdog going into his match with the Miz, Riley has done some nice things lately and seems to be breaking new ground as far as his career is concerned. I like Riley’s athleticism and intensity and, win or lose, the former college linebacker seems to be on the right track.”
Ross on a big DVD project: “I’m planning on being a part of the biggest DVD project that I’ve ever been assigned next week. This project has been years in the making and could be ground breaking. If it comes off as many of us envision, it will be a huge coup for WWE and will be ‘must see.’ That’s all I’m going to say on this matter but I am legit pumped to be a part of this project.”
Ross on Zack Ryder: “Got lots of emails this week about the Zack Ryder ‘situation.’ I’m not sure what exactly this ‘situation’ is other than Ryder has developed many fans thanks to his You Tube show and Ryder’s fans want to see him on TV more. Ryder’s time is likely coming as he’s a hard working, solid talent. I hope he gets to live his dream but dreams don’t come true over night. My dream was to always work in WWE and it only took me 19 years to get there. Let’s hope Zack is on a faster track. :)
