JR Blog: Brock Lesnar Walkout, WWE Fast Lane 2015, Samoa Joe re-signing with ROH

Jim Ross posted a mid-week blog, here are some highlights

on Brock Lesnar Walkout
Read online about Brock Lesnar allegedly walking out of Monday Night RAW prior to his appearance on Monday’s show so to address the many Tweets @JRsBBQ and emails, I have no idea what the issue may or may not be. Generally, my philosophy on matters such as this is to keep my nose out of other’s business and that these matters are usually about one of the Two C’s, cash or creative. That may or may not be the case in this matter but I’m confident that the two sides will reunite here at crunch time in attempting to build much needed momentum for WrestleMania which will be here before we know it. In today’s world of big money and the multitude of diverse personalties involved in negotiations in all sports ad entertainment, once again the term communication elbows its way into the equation.

on WWE Fast Lane 2015
I thought WWE needed to address three primary issues at WWE Fast Lane and they accomplished such. The Bryan-Reigns issue, how Rusev was utilized and the anticipated Sting-HHH confrontation all were featured and I feel all that needed to be accomplished was.

on Wrestlemania 31
It’s certainly time for every one involved with the WWE product to rise to the occasion and add a little more ‘sauce to the brisket’ and get more folks talking about watching WM31 of which I’m certainly looking forward to seeing via the @WWENetwork from our Oklahoma home. That event will be reviewed by Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer and me on the Ross Report Podcast on podcastone.com and iTunes. I expect that show to be one of our most downloaded shows of the year as it will drop on Tuesday night March 31 at 9 pm ET.

on Samoa Joe re-signing with ROH
Good to see Samoa Joe re-signing with ROH where he should be a huge fan favorite. ROH’s PPV on March 1 in Vegas should be a strong show if it isn’t over booked and the matches are given time for the talents to slow down a gear and tell more compelling stories in the ring that includes ample selling and allowing the fans to process what they are seeing. I’m not endorsing a plodding pace but instead connecting with the audience at a pace that creates enhanced fan involvement and make the match easier and more compelling to call for the broadcasters.
