Jim Ross is back with another short blog update on his website, jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
– Piper/Jericho was a compelling segment. Piper spoke from his heart representing how he really feels, in my view, and the promo struck home. Jericho has been awesome in his current role.
– Loved the Funk’s going into the WWE HOF. Fans should really focus on Dory and Terry’s complete body of work as it relates to the often used term of “Hardcore” which seems overused and watered down. The Funk’s were amazing wrestlers in an era completely unlike today’s wrestling scene. Having seen them both in person I can honestly say that in their prime that they would be headlining WWE PPV’s today without question. I’ll have more on these special brothers later this week. Dusty Rhodes, who will no doubt provide a colorful introduction, battled both his Texas brethren in some classic battles. This presentation should be one of the highlights of the HOF, time permitting.
– The end of Raw was perfect. There was nothing I could have said to make the closing minutes better. Loved the drama. It will be interesting TV to see how SD’s HHH will respond to this compelling and personal matter. Personal issues are what built this business and the HHH-Orton matter is damn sure personal.
