- Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On Summerslam and Daniel Bryan: Enjoyed the Summer Slam PPV and it was a real masterpiece from a TV production standpoint and look of the show. Very slick and well produced. No one does live TV better than WWE but I've been saying that for years. Cena/Bryan/HHH/Orton created a most memorable moment at Summer Slam that certainly has a great deal of fans talking. It sets up some potential, interesting scenarios down the road. Bryan winning the title from Cena and then being able to celebrate before the pedigree and Orton's pin was well done. Daniel Bryan may be more popular today than if he had actually won the WWE Title at Summer Slam. Bryan will now apparently chase new Champ Randy Orton and the thrill of the fan favorite chasing the antagonist has always interested me as a fan.
On Punk vs. Lesnar: Pena vs. Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman was another masterpiece. I predicted that it would be overtly physical and it certainly was in delivering a 'DEE-LUX' Slobber Knocker of a match. Great intensity and physicality rarely fails to deliver when the money is on the line in a major PPV. Simple gameplan....great results.
On Christian vs. Del Rio: Del Rio vs. Christian also had a terrific bout and one that many young, wrestling students could learn from as it relates to fundamental skill set and in ring psychology.
On WWE's Young Talent: Lots youth on the WWE roster and they continue to work hard in improving their game and to compete for viable, roster spots. Competition within the locker room is a positive thing. That was an Attitude Era trait however patience is needed by many fans who want instant stardom....yesterday.
