JR comments on last night’s show…
- Jim Ross has posted a new blog on his website. Here are the highlights…
On The Orton vs. Bryan Main Event: Solid show with an outstanding main event is how I would describe the PPV. Thought Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton closed the show strongly and with a memorable conclusion that will hopefully garner them was water cooler talk in some circles. Bryan is a wrestler's wrestler who has paid his dues and is an exemplary member of the WWE team and locker room. Congrats to him and hopefully he will have a long, productive reign as WWE Champion. Time will obviously tell on that one. It will be interesting to see if there is any fall out tonight on RAW between HHH and Orton because RKO came up short in Detroit.
On The Punk, Ryback, Heyman Angle: Ryback aligning himself with Paul Heyman might be the best thing that Ryback has been able to accomplish since getting healthy. If Ryback is to become a major, major player in WWE then @HeymanHustle is the man to help Ryback accomplish such. There is still money left on the table to see CM Punk FINALLY give Heyman an ass whipping somewhere down the road.
On The Prime Time Players: Good outing for the Prime Time Players even though their tag title bout vs. The Shield felt a little rushed. I love the positive steps the PTP have made in recent weeks and hope that they stay hungry and keep pushing hard to improve their game. Reigns and Rollins are going to be top hands and viable main eventers for years to come if they can avoid the injury bug and don't catch "wrestler insanity."
On The Feel of the PPV: In many ways the PPV felt like many members of a new team taking one step closer to becoming 'acceptably' established. It's a work in progress to arrive at the top and stay there. No one has a definitive time table and there are no magic formulas. It takes lots of working smart and praying that one can connect with the audience.
