Jim Ross Blog: ROH Global Wars PPV Review, Adam Cole/Bullet Club, WWE Extreme Rules 2016


JR checked in with a new Monday blog, here are some highlights:

At the end of the day, I was very pleased that I bought the ROH PPV Global Wars and look forward to buying their next PPV this summer. If you missed the show, I highly recommend that you check it out via the FITE TV App.

on Adam Cole
I do feel that Adam Cole is a perfect fit to be in the Bullet Club and I’m a big fan of Adam’s work. The promos from the revised Bullet Club will go miles in determining if this faction will ‘get over’ in ROH as villains. This new Bullet Club should facilitate some interesting, ROH TV.

on Colt vs Jay
I was really looking forward to the Colt Cabana vs Jay Lethal bout for the ROH Title and enjoyed their match a great deal while it lasted and before the massive run in by the Bullet Club and their new member Adam Cole. I’m not an advocate of interrupting the main event of a PPV to shoot an angle and then not having an outcome to the advertised main event/Title Bout. The massive run in by the Bullet Club felt a great deal like a nWo angle but that’s not a bad thing but it won’t stand out as an original concept if that happens to be important to you. It felt like the angle worked but time will tell if that is the case. This finish wa sa bold move to close the PPV while supplanting the main event by and large.

on Extreme Rules
WWE Extreme Rules PPV is rapidly approaching and I’m under the mindset that this is one of the more creatively challenging major events that WWE reproduces annually. Why? It’s hard to maintain a PG product in an extreme rules format where there is rarely no blood utilized as a dramatic effect while using so many props as ‘weapons’ in many of the bouts. Plus, one would assume that after enduring an extreme rules match that many talents would then be absent from the ensuring RAW to ‘recover’ but it doesn’t seem that occurs often enough.
