Jim Ross checked in with a mid-week blog, here are some highlights
Interesting RAW Monday night from Atlanta as the new, females from NXT had more people talking on my timelines than anyone else on the show including the combatants for the WWE World Title. Sara Del Ray has done an amazing of training/coaching the women who pass through NXT. Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch should be stalwarts for years to come in WWE and I see no reason why they cannot move to the top or near the top of primary WWE events sooner than later. It’s a sign of the times and a changing of he guard not unlike the days of Jennie Finch putting women’s softball on the map or Ronda Rousey becoming a mega star in UFC. The only thing that can hold these women back is old school thinking and not being willing to take a chance on adding something new to the top of the cards.
on Seth Rollins/Brock Lesnar
WWE has positioned Seth Rollins to lose to Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Title Sunday night in St. Louis which is why I don’t think it happens. Sunday would be a great place to add a new talent or two to the mix as allies of Rollins considering that Lesnar and Heyman have eliminated the rest. Could HHH cost Lesnar the title and then face Brock at Summer Slam? Bottom line is that I don’t see Rollins losing Sunday at Battleground.
on Undertaker comes back to Summer Slam
Here’s one for you…Undertaker comes back to Summer Slam, causes Lesnar to lose to Rollins and then Taker faces Lesnar at Summer Slam. Yes, I’m on meds.
on Cesaro, Rusev and Kevin Owens
The triple threat match featuring Cesaro, Rusev and Kevin Owens, the only one in the match with two names, was excellent. WWE needs to be careful as to not put Owens into a position to where he is considered just another viable hand and keep him special after he beat John Cena on PPV. Cesaro is a main event star waiting to happen and if Rusev can get good coaching to perfect villain nuances he too can become a main event level villain for WWE of which they are so desperately short.
