JR Blog: Sting vs. Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar Fallout, Dudley Boyz Return, Divas Crowd Reaction
Jim Ross had a big post-Raw blog, here are some highlights
on Sting vs. Seth Rollins
Strategic booking for the Sting vs. Seth Rollins main event at WWE Night of Champions in Houston on Sunday September 20 in the Toyota Center. Sting had some great dys in Houston back in the mid 80’s with Watts and Boesch so he’s no stranger to the marketplace plus he lives in Texas these days. I don’t see this as a long term scenario but the build will be fine and the match is fresh and provides both men something new to sink their teeth into. The Sting reveal was well executed and created a buzz as the show went off the air. Sting will likely surprise all with his match against the talented Rollins.
on Brock fallout on Raw
Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar had another strong RAW and Lesnar is arguably WWE’s hottest star, full or part time. Not seeing Lesnar every week helps him immensely which would hold true for other talents who seemingly are on RAW automatically every week. Not sure that’s the best thing for them these days. Lesnar’s physicality on Bo Dallas was a nice touch especially if one isn’t Bo Dallas. Lesnar is a human demolition derby and fans love to see even the most minute amount of physicality from the Hereford Bull. Plus, when Heyman speaks it’s a can’t lose segment. One doesn’t need to be a “writer” to get that one right.
on Dudley Boys Return
Great seeing those “Damn Dudley’s” back on WWE TV. Good ‘get’ by WWE as Bubba and Devon can mentor the young tag teams and provide some marketable name identity for live events. Young talents cannot improve with out working with talents of a higher skill set. The Dudley’s have that in spades.
The Divas need issues/rivalries just like the men as personal issues will make most fans sit up and pay closer attention to what’s going on and its time for the women in WWE to be booked more like their male counterparts. The match Saturday night between Bayley and Sasha Banks was spectacular no matter the gender and one of the reasons i that the two had a personal issue plus the title was at stake. Coach Sara Del Ray is arguably the most effective coach WWE employs as evidenced on how she’s taught the women that have come out of NXT.
