Jim Ross posted a new blog on Sunday at jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
– Bryan’s release from WWE was a head scratcher but none of us likely know exactly what caused this matter to occur. I know that I don’t. I do know that I am a fan of the young man’s work and wouldn’t be surprised to see him back in WWE in the future. If he made a mistake, hopefully it was simply a human error and those sorts of indiscretions are forgivable over time or at least they are in my eyes.
Bryan was arguably the most talked about, most talented guy on NXT’s first season and I just don’t think that we’ve seen the last of him in WWE and that is not ‘official’ but merely my opinion. Bryan can become a star in WWE and I hope that opportunity presents itself for this respectful, young man of high character who is deserving of all the good things that can come his way. Call me an optimist if you choose but I think that this matter will have a happy ending.
– Emailer…the only ‘guaranteed’ Wrestlemania main event that I would bet a case of the world’s greatest Beef Jerky on is Undertaker vs. Cena. It’s only a matter of when (No, I don’t know) and where. BTW, I will take the Deadman and lay the points.
– Emailer…Yes announcing wrestling today is challenging and one has to serve many ‘masters’ and address many platforms. My biggest pet peeve are individuals who are ‘playing the role’ of an announcer and not being natural extensions of themselves. It seems as if I hear a fair amount of this from time to time but that might simply be me and my egocentric ears. Also, if any announcer is only trying to get better at their job only when they are at work then they are backing up to the pay window and are not ’emotionally invested’ in their work. At least, that’s my two cents.
