Jim Ross posted a new blog entry Monday covering Brock Lesnar, WrestleMania 28 thoughts, Hell In A Cell, Dolph Ziggler, the Miami crowds from WrestleMania and Raw, Damien Sandow, and more:
Ross on the Miami crowds from WrestleMania and Raw: I feel that the Miami crowd was heavily influenced by so many fans who traveled from outside the USA to attend WM28 as there were many soccer styled chants that reminded me of some of my earliest trips to the UK.
Ross on Brock Lesnar’s WWE Return: Many fans are still buzzing about the return of the enigma known as Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is a complex, dominating and driven athlete who made an immediate impact last week when he F5’ed John Cena without warning.
I find it odd that many fans can’t understand why Brock Lesnar came back to WWE after retiring from MMA competition. I always thought that Brock would return to WWE but the timing of his return did somewhat surprise me. Lesnar is a businessman, a competitive athlete and knows a potential, golden opportunity when he sees one.
‘The Next Big Thing’ returns to WWE a little older, although he is still young, and likely wiser this go around which makes the former NCAA National Champion and WWE Champion that much more dangerous. Goal driven athletes generally push themselves harder than anyone else ever could and Lesnar is not one to accept a role of being “o.k.” when being great is possible.
Ross on Dolph Ziggler: I finally got to watch WM28 in its entirety over the weekend and other than the obvious I felt that @HEELZiggler was outstanding in the 12 man tag. I can easily see Ziggler having an impactful year in 2012 and being in the main event mix come WM29 on April 7, 2013.
Ross on Hell In A Cell, The Undertaker, Triple H and Shawn Michaels: After watching HIAC from WM28, challenging because I don’t like listening to myself (I know…I could have muted the sound but my wife wanted to hear the commentary) I am hard pressed to name any match that was more better executed that what I saw between HHH and Undertaker. Their match stole the show, in my opinion, and was one of the best bouts that I ever had the honor of calling. The gutteral physicality was extraordinary.
I don’t have a crystal ball but I’d be surpirsed to see HHH, @ShawnMichaels and the Undertaker, all together, ever being in the ring as participants at a WrestleMania or any other WWE event ever again. The final chapter of an amazing book was seemingly written and the book closed on Sunday in Miami.
Ross on his radio show appearances: Just a FYi..every Wednesday I do a hit on http://www.sportstalk1400.com at 4:30 pm central time. Also do a national radio hit on http://www.yahoosportsradio.com every Saturday morning at 10:30 central time.
Ross on FCW callup / new SmackDown superstar Damien Sandow: Speaking of FCW, keep an eye on Damien Sandow who debuted on Smackdown Friday night. He’s bright, athletic and motivated. I fully expect him to be successful at the next level. I love his ‘Lou Thesz-like’ robe and towel combo. I have high expectations for Sandow who’s got a solid work ethic and is a student of the game notwithstanding a well spoken individual.
