Jim Ross checked in with some thoughts after Raw, here are some highlights:
on Roman Reigns
Reigns wins by disqualification which did not bother me as it was explained by the announcers and then the apparent next, “it” guy made his physical presence felt to both Ryback and Axel and the last thing people see is generally what they remember. Reigns rolled and that’s what I remember. Reigns is an amazing prospect but needs more reps on the mic but the second generation wrestler is fully aware of how important mic skills are in the biz and especially in WWE. Reigns is a smart young man and I have every confidence that his mic skills will continue to evolve. I still say his time line is April 2015 at WM31.
on Paul Heyman
Paul Heyman has become pure gold on the mic but that isn’t a revelation or new news. The first segment with Heyman and Brock Lesnar was excellent. Lesnar has become Sasquatch. If Lesnar doesn’t win the WWE World Title Sunday in LA at Summer Slam, I will be surprised. This championship should be a match dotted with physicality. Hey, who knows. perhaps WWE goes the surprise route because so many folks including me think that Lesnar should be the champion regardless of his schedule.
on Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins:
Certainly looks like the WWE has big plans for Seth Rollins who seems to enjoy being a heel. I’m a Rollins fan and have been since NXT.
I’m not wild about the Lumberjack Stipulation for Summer Slam between Dean Ambrose and Rollins but I’m sure that the two will tear down the house if given the time to do so. I’d book them to open Summer Slam and challenge the rest of the card to “top this.”
