Source: JR's BBQWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
- I'm guessing that John Cena and Dolph Ziggler win their respective MITB bouts this Sunday on PPV. No wagering please.
- I'd love to see some of WWE's younger talents have break through performances this Sunday on PPV. Like in main stream sports, I believe in throwing someone in the game and seeing if they can help the team win. Nothing ventured...nothing gained.
- I've been extremely impressed with Kane the past several weeks as I have previously mentioned here. The veteran continues to deliver in a big way inside the ropes which is where it counts the most. Kane is a great success story as he migrated through the independent scene to earn a HOF level career in WWE. When I first saw Kane, it was in an arena of maybe 100 fans, he looked a great deal like Sycho Sid in size and wrestled under a mask known as the Unibomber. We had him come to a WWE TV, which I think was in Georgia, for a try out and officials were impressed with his size, athleticism and demeanor. No major star that I can recall has been easier to work with than the highly intelligent and articulate Kane. I have great respect for the man....even though he tried to BBQ me once upon a time.
- Good seeing Bob Backlund on Raw Monday night but in hindsight I'd have loved to have seen Bob make his cameo while RAW was in the northeast. Perhaps he wasn't available. The former champion is in amazing condition for a guy in his 60's but Bobby has always been a cardio freak and his strength was always grossly underrated. I have no knowledge of the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame Class but Backlund has to be high on the list of potential inductees. Backlund was a two sport All American in College both on the gridiron as a defensive end and on the mat 190.
