JR Gives His Thoughts On Raw, Cole/Lawler, WM XXVII
Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are the highlights:
-The Dallas/WWE fans definitely came to see Stone Cold Steve Austin. Although Austin did not have that much to say nor did he overstay his welcome by any stretch, Austin stole the show Monday night and seemed to be having a great time interacting with the fans and even the cameramen. Austin’s fans long ago made a strong emotional bond with the Texas Rattlesnake that will seemingly last forever. @steveaustinBSR, on Twitter, can still command an audience as good as any WWE performer today or any previous generation.
-Michael Cole had the tables turned on him with Austin becoming the special referee for Cole’s WM27 match w/ Jerry Lawler. It will be interesting to see how ‘Cole sore’ reacts this Friday night on Smackdown and again next Monday from St. Louis on Raw. Cole draws as much villain angst as anyone on the Raw roster and his match with the King is one of the most talked about bouts that we will see in Atlanta. I think that Lawler ought to make Cole wear a diaper when, not if, the King gets his hand raised at Jerry’s first ever Wrestlemania match.
-Twitter follower @JRsBBQ asked what bout I thought would close the show at WM27. That’s a good question and one for which I have no answer but my preference would be Undertaker vs. HHH. However, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the show closed with the WWE Title bout especially with the Rock seemingly knee deep in Cena and Miz’ business. Both are viable options to end the most significant, WWE event of the year that looks as if it will be attended by well north of 65,000 in the Georgia Dome.
