Jim Ross has a new blog up at JRSBARBQ.com Here are the highlights…
On Chris Jericho: Chris Jericho had a helluva night on Raw and is one of the WWE's true MVP's. His promo and interaction with the 'GM' was money. Jericho takes a back seat to no one in WWE as it relates to all around skills. We often forget he's a 20 year vet. Not many of them around that are still as productive as the Fozzy front man.
On Miz vs. Daniel Bryan: Miz vs. Daniel Bryan for the United States Title Sunday in Chicago on PPV might steal the show. I hope that they have time to tell a compelling story. Think of how significant an opportunity this is for Bryan....a one on one bout for a title at a major PPV.
On Tyson Kidd: Tyson Kidd showed some flashes of specialness Monday night on Raw. Remember the match several months ago with Kidd vs. Rey Mysterio? With the right opponent and a personal issue in tact, Tyson Kidd can be a 'player' unless I'm dead wrong.
On Building Stars: Did we peek into WWE's future just a bit when John Morrison competed with Sheamus Monday night? Morrison is so damn athletic and when he adds more visible toughness to his presentation he will be one step closer to where he wants to be. Sheamus is already physical and tougher than a $2 steak but the WWE Champion's best days are a head of him. WWE is building a viable, young talent roster and some might even say that WWE is in somewhat of a transition period. The best days for most of their young guys lies ahead and the next 18-24 months should be most interesting. I'm already thinking who might headline the top bouts at WM28.
