JR Blogs On Paul Heyman’s Return, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar, Austin



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with his latest blog. Here are some highlights:

Paul Heyman’s return: Paul Heyman’s return is one of the more positive things to occur in WWE in a good while. As I have said over the years, Heyman’s TV persona is an easy one to dislike. We’ve had some classic on air disputes but none compare to some of the one’s that we have had off the air especially when we were teaming in Atlanta while working for WCW.

What makes Heyman so effective is that he doesn’t play the ‘role’ of a villain who has litigious tendencies. Plus, Heyman is a life long fan who now has the chance to essentially reinvent himself with this unexpected return to the genre. It will likely be his last return to the business if I had to make a wager.

I thought Heyman’s interaction with HHH Monday night was the highlight of the broadcast while it kicked off the show as nothing really could follow that compelling first segment of the night.

Potential Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar match: Lesnar will get what he has coming to him was a great line by The Game. It could mean many things including a possible match between HHH and Lesnar if we fans are lucky. Time will tell on that but this particular issue has my interest and, more importantly, has me thinking of all the potential ‘moments’ that the HHH/Heyman/Lesnar issue might provide.

Steve Austin’s new deal: Congrats to Steve Austin @steveaustinBSR on his new deal with CMT to star in the new reality show Redneck Island. The new reality show is to begin airing in June and Steve is taping it now somewhere in Mexico, I think. CMT seems to be a nice fit for Steve on cable. For those asking, I do not know how those outside the USA access Country Music Television now known as CMT.

Jim Ross also shared his thoughts on Monday’s Raw, this Sunday’s CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan match and more.
