Jim Ross Blogs: Calling WrestleMania, Superbowl, More
Source: JRSBARBQ.comWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted a new blog on JRSBARBQ.com. Here are some of the highlights:
Daniel Bryan As Champion + RAW: "Loved the TV bouts Monday on Raw featuring Orton vs Ziggler and Punk vs Bryan. Both were right in the wheel house of any broadcaster and one that any commentator could easily emotionally invest. Four, very talented men bringing it on free TV. Impressive. "
"For the record, informed fans who feel that Daniel Bryan is inadequate as World Champion in WWE have more than likely never had their ass whipped by a smaller guy. I can say this, on college campuses around the country and where amateur wrestling exists, the football players usually want nothing to do with the wrestlers especially the smaller wrestlers who carry enhanced chips on their shoulders."
Whether He Will Call WrestleMania: "Been asked dozens of times if I'm broadcasting at WrestleMania 28. The honest answer is that I don't know. I don't find it newsworthy that I 'want' to broadcast WrestleMania because anyone in WWE who does any job in connection with the event and who doesn't want to be a part of WrestleMania should be future endeavored. That would be the equivalent of a NFL player NOT wanting to play in the Super Bowl. WrestleMania remains very special to me and I will be in Miami for WrestleMania week and will enjoy every minute of the experience no matter what I do. "
Superbowl Prediction: "Going with the New York Giants and the points thanks to their defense, the team's overall momentum, and the hot hand of Eli Manning vs the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl. If Tom Brady can stay vertical, then the Pats have a much better chance but with TE Rob Gronkowski not at 100%, the Giants and the points seem to be the better option. I have no dog in the fight so watching Sunday will be stress free unless the damned phone starts ringing."
