Would Cena have made it in the Attitude Era?: WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin discussed whether John Cena would have made it in the Attitude Era, during a recent piece on the official WWE website. “Yeah, had he been placed in it, and been dealt with accordingly, the John Cena you see now — the face of the franchise, the leader of the pack? Not so much,” says Austin. “But I guarantee if you’d have gotten him face to face with ‘Stone Cold’ in an interview, and you know John cuts a good interview himself, if I slapped the s*** out of that son of a b****, I think we’re off and running to make a lot of money.” “All he needs is to be poked and prodded in the right way. I think John Cena has a hell of a lot of fire and he needs to be in the ring with the right opponent, or the right cat, to bring that out. So in the current environment, you really don’t see that in him. Place [Cena] back 10 years in the ring with ‘Stone Cold’? You’d have rung the cash register, big time.” Steve Austin also discussed how he developed his mic skills: “I always give credit to Paul for helping me to understand what a promo was, and giving me a chance to cut them and giving me the confidence and the platform to cut promos. Man, if it hadn’t been for Paul Heyman offering me a job in ECW, I don’t know if “Stone Cold” would have ever been.” ___________________________________________________________ The Marine 3: Homefront trailer: Here is the latest trailer for WWE Studios film The Marine 3: Homefront starring The Miz: A Marine must do whatever it takes to save his kidnapped niece and stop a terrorist attack masterminded by a radical militia group. ___________________________________________________________ Jim Ross discusses his highlight of 2012: Veteran WWE announcer Jim Ross revealed his highlight of 2012 in his latest JRSBARBQ.com blog post: “Been asked the highlight of my WWE year and without question it was being afforded the opportunity by WWE upper management to broadcast the HIAC bout at WM28 featuring the Undertaker, HHH and @ShawnMichaels,” Ross wrote. “Big time bucket list memory for me and a night that I’ll always fondly remember. I’m hopeful that I can call one bout at WM29 just to be a part of the event. Many of us worked some amazing hours over the years to contribute to building this amazing event. “When I sit back and see where WrestleMania has come since I made my debut in Vegas at WM9, I am honestly amazed. I see continued use of stadiums for future WrestleMania events and hope that I can be a small part of the proceedings for as long as I’m able. It’s our Super Bowl and who wouldn’t want to be associated with the biggest event in our profession? Old players still like to play.” ___________________________________________________________ December 26, 2012, WWE MAIN EVENT results: The Boxing Day edition of WWE MAIN EVENT on Ion, saw the following matches… - The Great Khali won a 20-Man Battle Royal to become No. 1 contender to the U.S. Championship: Barrett and Khali the last men, traded blows, though the impact of the Punjabi’s massive blows couldn’t prevent Barrett from taking his eye off the prize. The Bareknuckle Brawler mounted an aggressive offense trying to wear down his monstrous foe and make the journey over the top rope as effortless as possible. However, the sheer size of The Great Khali was too much for Barrett;The Punjabi Playboy overpowered him, and after tossing him over the top rope and onto the apron, he secured the victory with a massive chop to the skull. - Tyson Kidd & Justin Gabriel def. 3MB (Jinder Mahal & Drew McIntyre): Mahal and McIntyre mounted a dominant offensive, but the resilience and agility of Gabriel & Kidd ultimately proved to be too much, as they seized every opportunity available to execute high-impact, high-reward maneuvers. Their strategy paid off, and the high-flying duo executed an incredible move that widened eyes and dropped jaws across the WWE Universe before securing the win.
