WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:
Wrestling Villains: No I do not have issues with TV wrestling villains getting a lion’s share of TV time. Angst, animosity, and anger attract viewers when well executed by those that become those antagonist persona’s and are not merely playing the role of a ‘bad guy.’ Great, wrestling villains facilitate so many storylines and they also provide the top heroes with the chance to become even bigger heroes because of the obstacles the fan favorites must overcome.
Edge’s Retirement: I have not read the latest dirt that Edge is contemplating retirement. Honestly speaking, any athlete that is Edge’s age, he’s still young but has been in wrestling a long time, and has had his laundry list of injuries must obviously ‘think’ about their future if they are smart and Edge is a very smart guy. Edge has earned exceptionally well and he’s been admirably smart with his funds. I see Edge sticking around and contributing a few more years but he will not be one of the guys who’s 50 or more and still wrestling at the local, VFW Hall for grocery money. Edge is a true student of the game and still has so much to give and him being on Smackdown is timely and smart positioning for WWE.
WrestleMania 27: I would suggest to you that no one knows for sure what the main event or main events will be in Atlanta at WM27. I would also suggest to you that any one who says that they do know for sure is loaded with manure. Having a big time, marquis main event for WM27 is crucial as it is hard to market this mega event with an ensemble cast and no primary focus on one, major bout.
