WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights. Thoughts on John Cena: John Cena has put himself into a situation where he has every thing to lose and what to gain in his match with Punk next week? Curious to see how this is addressed. Perhaps it’s as simply as Cena wanting to silence Punk and get the elusive win over the former WWE Champion that has escaped Cena. Thoughts on Mark Henry: Mark Henry is on a roll since returning a few weeks ago from an extended absence due to injury. Henry has a ‘bad attitude’ and I find him one of the more compelling, intimidating villains in WWE. Thoughts on The Miz: Miz winning by using Ric Flair’s Figure Four surprised me. Flair seemingly rarely won in his later career with his signature maneuver. Miz needs to watch lots of Flair tape to see how seamlessly Naitch applied the hold. It’s not as easy as Ric made it look. Zeb & Swagger segments: Getting lots of Tweets regarding Zeb Colter’s politically based comments and many feel that the comments are untimely. Isn’t that what wrestling villains do, make inflammatory, controversial comments that strike a nerve with the audience? Same type of comments are made daily on a variety of news outlets so I’d suggest to the most vocal of critics to simply, “Lighten Up Francis.” Zeb’s TV persona is that of a political zealot who has controversial opinions. Zeb…if that is his real name. Jack Swagger is too good of a big, athlete to not have a viable shot at long term success in WWE. The former, two time, Oklahoma State High School Heavyweight Wrestling Champion AND All State football lineman went to OU as a two sport star and earned two time All American Honors in wrestling while a Sooner. Colter is helping develop Swagger’s TV persona which is timely while Swagger is as athletic a big men, 6’6″-270, as anyone on the WWE roster. New WWE Championship title: The Rock unveiled the newly designed WWE Title of which has been a topical, Twitter subject @JRsBBQ. I’ve stated many times in the past, I’m not a title belt aficionado and have never invested much of my time on the design of any championship. I think classy, simple is better but, again, I won’t lose any sleep over how a championship belt looks. Personalized Championship tittles are simply what they are. I always thought the old WCW Title belt was WAY too big as was the UWF Title back in the day while I still think that the Lou Thesz version of the NWA Title along with the Race, Funk, Brisco NWA title belt was classy and cool. But again, I’m not your best source for an opinion on the Spinner Title or Rock’s Brahma Bull Title. I’d say the same thing re: the Smoking Skull title as well in case you’re wondering.
