Jim Ross Blog: WWE Brand Split, Brock Lesnar/Randy Orton Rumors, Hardy Boys final confrontation, CWC

Jim Ross had a new blog after Raw, here are some highlights

on Hardy Boys final confrontation
Looking forward to seeing the Hardy Boys final confrontation that airs This week on POP TV during the weekly TNA Impact Wrestling broadcast. I’ve heard a variety of things about the pre taped content band look forward to seeing it for myself. Matt and Jeff will join us in OKC at OklaMania on Sunday July 17 and tickets are on sale now at ticketmaste.com.

on Brock Lesnar/Randy Orton Rumors
Rumor has it that Brock Lesnar will likely face the returning Randy Orton at Summer Slam. Not sure if the rumor is true but if it is I hope Orton is ready for some suplexes on his repaired shoulder that has been problematic for Randy for a good while. Obviously the outcome of the Lesnar-Hunt UFC 200 fight could potentially alter Lesnar’s appearance in Brooklyn in August.

on WWE Brand Split
I’m still of the mindset that the WWE Brand Split can potentially be one of the best things that WWE has done in years. It’s allows the company to hit the creative reset button and I’m hopeful that both RAW and Smackdown will look and feel different as if WWE had two different ownership groups managing them for WWE.

on WWE Cruiserweight Open
Anxious to watch the WWE Cruiserweight Open that airs Wednesday night on the WWE Network and listening to Mauro Ranallo and Daniel Bryan broadcast the event. Mauro is a breath of fresh air in the land of wrestling broadcasters. Great hire by WWE but I’m assuming that my Canadian friend is getting weary of being compared to “JR back in the day.” Mauro is Mauro and that works for me and his fans plus I’m not dead just yet and still have some fuel in the tank which we attempt to exhibit on Friday nights on AXSTV for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
