Jim Ross Blog: WWE Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns “improving in virtually every phase”, Stephanie McMahon, Becky Lynch, Lack of Face/Heel Distinction


Jim Ross had an all new blog following Raw, here are some highlights

on Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns is improving in virtually every phase of his game which is not to say that he’s a ‘made man’ just yet but he took a cold match vs Rusev and made the audience apparently care. Reigns needs to talk in sound bytes and NOT the long, filibuster type monologs IMO. I expect Reigns to win the Rumble and/or to get through the hellfire and brimstone only to figuratively get bit in the backside by the 31st entry in the Rumble match which might be HHH.

on Stephanie McMahon
Stephanie McMahon had another strong night on the mic and again proved that she understands how to be a villain much like her father, Mr McMahon. Being a heel is a mindset that some individuals grasp quite naturally and easily while others stumble through attempting to play the role of an antagonist.

on Becky Lynch
Nonetheless I am pleased that Becky Lynch is getting a shot at something significant even though she may be preparing Charlotte for Sasha Banks at Wrestlemania. If that is remotely true, Becky still has the opportunity to build her body of work and her star status.

on face/heel distinctions
BTW, is Big Show a fan favorite or a villain? Anyone??

Big continuity glitch with the pairing of Nattie Neidhart and Paige. Weren’t they rivals not that long ago? Pretending that their issues never occurred isn’t good business.

I am entertained by New Day but in no way do I perceive them as villains. They might come off as a little obnoxious at times but do I dislike them like I’d ideally want to with them allegedly being positioned as heels? Nope.
