JR Blog: WWE Using Bearer on RAW, Bryan vs. Ziggler, More

WWE Hall of Famer is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:

– For those complaining about the usage of Paul Bearer’s image less than a week after his sudden passing last Tuesday at the age of 58, I suggest that they relax. I’m guessing that I knew Percy better than most complaining within the internet wrestling community and I can say without hesitation that he would have loved how his TV persona was honored notwithstanding how he contributed to one more storyline leading into .

Punk interrupting the final moments of the opening Paul Bearer tribute was villainy 101.

As a matter of fact, I felt like Punk had more antagonist angst when Raw was going off the air than he did when he first arrived on the scene in the first segment of the show.

The idea is to motivate fans to pay to see the villain get his ass handed to him and if that theory is accurate then WWE succeeded in regards to the Taker-Punk ‘Streak’ match at WM29.

– WWE utilizing ’s divorce in the WWE Title video package surprised me. However, it made perfect sense and is an issue that most people can relate to in some fashion. It also helps realistically explain Cena’s own self proclaimed downward spiral in 2012.

– Proud of guys after having seen them evolve and develop in NXT even though some will either hit me on our Q&A’s or on Twitter @JRsBBQ that both Rollins and Ambrose were ready for prime time upon leaving ROH. I have a different opinion on that matter and I think that the talents themselves would concur. That’s no knock on ROH who I am pulling for in a big way to be successful.

– Add @WWEDanielBryan vs. @HEELZiggler to my list of ‘Best of Seven’ candidates. They had one helluva wrestling match on RAW Monday night. I’d expect both men to travel in different circles post WrestleMania as in faster circles or so I hope.
