Jim Ross put up a new mid week blog, here are some highlights
on Paul Heyman’s Raw promo
@HeymanHustle promo on RAW Monday was arguably one of his best ever. If any wrestler or wannabe who wants to understand the art of verbally telling a story and can listen to only one person in the business then make that one person Happy Heyman. It makes me proud that I was in a position to give him his first, national break on TV back in the WCW days. For me, it was easy to see that he was a special talent and he’s proven to be even more extraordinary than I predicted. I loved working with him even though he was could be like an ornery, little brother at times but make no mistake about it we jelled because we had mutual respect for each other and we both made it in the business when the majority of those in it did not endorse or predict our success.
on Piper Tribute
Th Roddy Piper tribute was exceptional on RAW and I thought WWE hit it out of the park on that presentation. It’s hard to fathom that some keyboard warriors hit me on twitter @JRsBBQ that they thought it “wasn’t enough.” SMH.
on Rousey vs. Cyborg
Do not bet against Cris Cyborg facing Ronda Rousey in a mega fight in 2016 as there is too much money involved in this ‘dream fight’ for it not to go down. Cyborg needs to be steroid and performance enhancing drug free but the reward for her playing by the rules is the biggest check that she will ever earn. It’s all about the money folks and making the fans happy which is promoting 101.
on Wrestlemania 32
My team is working diligently on a variety of opportunities for Wrestlemania week in April that we hope to be able to announce soon. This I know, if things go as planned, I will be plenty busy Friday-Monday post RAW. We’ve secured a major, radio station group to be promotional partners with and are in the process of finalizing our Dallas HQ venue as well. Excited to be able to drive to the April event from our home in Norman, Oklahoma only about a 2+ hour trip.
