Jim Ross Blog: Thoughts on Shane McMahon’s Return, The Undertaker on Raw, TNA Seeking Investors


Jim Ross checked in with a new weekend blog before Raw, here are some highlights

on Shane McMahons WWE Return
We’re being deluged here on the site and elsewhere including Twitter @JRsBBQ with questions on Shane McMahon’s return to the WWE that many witnessed last Monday night on RAW. Shane’s return was one of the most emotional moments that has been featured on RAW in years. Being asked to cast judgment on this storyline is borderline incredible and I simply have chosen to wait and see how this matter plays out before joining the maddening throng of fans who have either already declared it a failure of the best thing ever.

on Raw and the Undertaker
This Monday’s RAW with Undertaker scheduled to be on the broadcast to ostensibly answer the challenge will add significantly to this storyline and perhaps clear up the matter for some fans who seemingly have everything figured out regarding it.

At first brush, I have zero issues with this booking and look forward to seeing how the creative is crafted between now and April 3 in Texas. It’s easy to see that this pairing offers up potentially multiple, viable storyline elements that could make it a hot and eagerly anticipated presentation come Wrestlemania Texas. I think that it’s great that Shane’s three sons will be able to see their Dad step in the ring at WM32.

on TNA seeking investment
TNA is looking for new investors and strategic partners and that is making news and we wish them best of luck in attempting to better solidify their financial future. TNA’s recent shows on POP hae been showing signs of improvement.

on HHH
Apparently HHH is going to wrestle some live events before Wrestlemania which is imperative in my view. HHH is a perfectionist and being able to wrestle bouts on the road to Wrestlemania especially if he dances with Roman Reigns in some form is strategic.
