JR Blog: Elimination Chamber 2015, Cena/Owens, Austin/Lesnar Hype From Heyman Podcast

Jim Ross had an interesting post-Raw blog, here are some highlights

on Elimination Chamber 2015
Elimination Chamber was a sound event overall with the Cena-Owens and Ambrose-Rollins matches being the best of the night. I wasn’t wild about either Elimination Chamber bout but thought the tag title one was the better of the two. The effort by the talent was there but the format isn’t one that interests me in a PG landscape. Too much synchronization and stunts for my taste especially in the tag title version while the IC Title tilt seemed disjointed. Surprised that New Day retained which is a good thing being surprised and I have no issue with Ryback attempting to continue to put the luster back on the IC Title. Ryback used ala the Ultimate Warrior in some aspects of his game might be doable an work for the IC Champion.

on Cena/Owens
Nice verbal interplay between Cena and Owens Monday night on RAW. I’d love to see this develop into a great rivalry but in order for it to happen the villain (Owens) will have to maintain the upper hand until the bottom of the ninth IE the blow off match. Not sure that will happen but I’m certainly interested in going along for the ride. Owens winning at Elimination Chamber was essential and made all the wrestling sense in the world.

on Austin/Lesnar
Enjoyed the Steve Austin-Paul Heyman post RAW edition of the Steve Austin Podcast on the WWE Network and was pleased that WWE extended their time approximately 12 minutes as the two could have easily delivered two, compelling hours of entertainment. It brought back old times when Heyman struck the mean dog with a sharp stick when asking @steveaustinBSR about facing Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania Texas in April of 2016. Great intensity by Austin who flipped the switch into promo mode while talking about the topic that the IWC (Internet Wrestling Community) had to love. My Twitter timeline @JRsBBQ exploded as many fans reacted as if the match had been made and that Steve was firing the opening salvo of the verbal aspect of what would be a record setting main event.

on odds of an Austin-Lesnar
I’d give an educated guess that the odds of an Austin-Lesnar match being held at Wrestlemania Texas as less than 50-50 and likely closer to 65-35 that it won’t happen. I’d love to be wrong but as Austin said “the stars in the sky would all have to be aligned” for that to happen and I don’t see those stars as being fan friendly for the lack of a better expression.
