JR Blog: “No Issue” w/Nikki Retaining Title, “Perplexed” By HHH/Stephanie’s Booking, Brock Lesnar/Paul Heyman


Jim Ross had a new blog this week, here are some highlights

on Raw Finish “Perfect”
The finish of the show was perfect to build to Sunday’s NOC as Sting beating Rollins as tried an true, old school booking. Still curious as to why WWE did not heavily promote Sting’s first ever match on RAW in advance especially going up against the Monday Night Football double header. Nice booking.

on “No Issue” w/Nikki Retaining
Had no issue with villain Nikki cheating to retain her title and creating another opportunity to have another title bout in Houston Sunday against a motivated Charlotte. I only hope that Charlotte will never be earmarked to be a umpteen time champion which is one of the more overrated stats in pro wrestling. WWE is blessed with some amazing female talent and if they are not booked liked females have traditionally been more often than not in the biz in the past, they have something special to work with that will be new and fresh.

Nonetheless, Charlotte is amazingly athletic and a special talent and she reminds me of a female Kurt Angle.

on “Perplexed” By HHH/Stephanie’s Booking
Perplexed as to how the authority figure role in WWE is being played out as at times they appear to be fan friendly and the in a moment’s notice they’re not. Both HHH and Stephanie are excellent in their roles but I’m merely asking if the roles have essentially run their course at least for now? Just asking…

No one will ever be a better antagonist authority figure than Mr. McMahon.

on Brock Lesnar/Paul Heyman
Love that @HeymanHustle and Brock Lesnar are not on every RAW as it keeps them special ala Andre the Giant back in the day when he was the most valued attraction in the game. Same goes for Taker which is another reason that I feel that the Deadman isn’t retirement ready.
