What did JR think?
- Jim Ross has updated his JRsBarBq blog with his thoughts on the Royal rumble event. Here are some highlights:
On CM Punk losing the WWE title: "@CMPunk reign as WWE Champion added more stature and credibility to the WWE Title than any other reign that I can recall in recent memory because of the amount of days Punk spent on top. My hat's off to him. Punk was another Royal Rumble MVP in my eyes."
His thoughts on The Rock's performance: "The Rock's Performance: @TheRock wrestling the amount of time that he did in a show closing performance considering his lack of in ring time over the past several months was pretty amazing. Ring rust only is removed inside the ring and Rock showed his natural athletic skills and his desire to be the best in the long, physical match with Punk."
His thoughts on Rock vs. Cena at Wrestlemania again: "Rock vs Cena 2 is potentially HUGE money and that is and always has been the bottom line in this genre...money."
His thoughts on Chris Jericho's return and the Rumble match: "Really enjoyed the Rumble match. Chris Jericho was arguably one of the MVP's of the PPV and Y2J coming out 2nd in the Rumble order of entry gave the crowd life and the match an early hit that seemed to be sustained throughout. Brilliant placement for the future WWE HOFer. @IAmJericho ruled Sunday night."
