Jim Ross Blogs: Missing SummerSlam, Lesnar-UFC, & More
Missing SummerSlam: "Because of the short work day re: West Coast time this Sunday and with Summer Slam starting in LA at 5 Pacific, I won't be traveling to the event. I will watch it on PPV from the old, La-Z-Boy and, like any die hard fan, expect plenty of bang for my PPV dollar in the form of surprises, shockers, and stout bouts. "
Brock Lesnar's Next Fight: "Brock's next fight vs. Cain Velásquez is going to be massive and likely will garner over 1M PPV buys. Velásquez, the Hispanic superstar, has a spotless record and according to Herschel Walker is one of the best conditioned athletes on the planet. At 240, Cain is built to go 25 minutes if necessary. I'm still a solid, Lesnar guy but even those close to Brock know that this fight will be a huge challenge for the UFC Heavyweight Champion. The good news for Lesnar fans, based on my past relationship with the former Golden Gopher, is that Brock loves a challenge. He actually thrives on them. "
SummerSlam Main Event: "It will be interesting to see what bout closes the show Sunday. my money is on the Team WWE vs. Nexus tag. That bout has gotten by far the most significant, TV time."
WWE's New "All Stars" Video Game: "We recorded over 400 lines of copy in a little over two hours today for the WWE All Stars video game. I really feel that THQ and WWE will field a hit with this concept. It's a fantasy bookers dream and will be out prior to WM27 in Atlanta sometime in early 2011."
