JR Speaks On The Rock-John Cena, Undertaker’s Streak, Y2J & Punk

Jim Ross is back with his latest blog over at JRsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:

WWE developmental: “I’d expect that WWE will ‘call up’ several deserving talents sometime after WM28 and it will be interesting to see how these talents are introduced to the mass, TV audience and how said talents respond to their new found opportunities and the pressure that they will discover at the next level. Several talents are fundamentally ready for the chance of a lifetime but none are as good as they should aspire to be. Comfort zones are the kiss of death and striving each day to get better at what ever one does is not optional but a requirement in my perspective. Those that approach their professions in such a manner greatly enhance their chances of success. Only time will tell but I’m optimistic that WWE fans will embrace several new, FCW trained talents in the coming months.”

The Rock & John Cena’s war of words: “As a result of @TheRock personal barrage on @JohnCena, Cena has become much more edgy which I have enjoyed. Both Cena and Rock are from the competitive and physical world of college football and I think those deep roots will manifest itself into a physically demanding main event at WM28. I hope that WWE saves all the physical interaction between the two stars until April 1 and, to my way of thinking, I can’t see why WWE would risk putting either man at a physical risk prior to what is expected to be the highest grossing WrestleMania event of all time. Just one man’s take.”

The Chris Jericho / CM Punk angle on RAW: “@IAmJericho personal assault on @CMPunk using the father of Punk as ammo has upset many fans. Certainly those who have had alcoholism touch their lives are sensitive that this delicate matter is being utilized on an entertainment show but one can’t argue that the matter isn’t reality based or that it isn’t combustible. I said long ago that Punk vs. Jericho for the coveted WWE Title is a potential show stealer as far as a traditional wrestling match is concerned at WM28 and by adding the latest, personal ingredient to the equation this bout becomes even more eagerly anticipated. I expect greatness in this bout considering the two performers and hope that they let it naturally flow and don’t overcomplicate the process.”

The Undertaker’s streak: “The highest rated segment on Monday Night Raw was the confrontation between the Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. There is amazing interest in ‘The Streak’ especially now that it’s HHH looking to make history by becoming the first man to ever beat Taker at a WrestleMania event AND with @ShawnMichaels being the official inside Hell in a Cell. The Streak has had 19 years to establish a lasting foundation and many fans have lived through most or all of it. They are more, new questions raised weekly regarding this match and by the time we get to April 1 in Miami this collision will have more conspiracy theories than an Oliver Stone film.”
