Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights.
Closing angle on RAW: "Show closing segment.... @HeymanHustle promo/intro for @CMPunk was stellar. @Ryback22 interrupt shut Punk's promo down but the actions of the 'NXT in Black Boys' stood out. I lembrace their aggression and physicality directed at Ryback who took a helluva beating. Watch again in slo-mo if you think I'm embellishing. The three men comprised of @TheDeanAmbrose @RomanReigns and @WWWERollins did not become cannon fodder for the leviathan Ryback plus they kept a discernable level of mystique as their motives weren't revealed nor did we hear them speak as of yet. All good in carving out an episodic TV storyline. The closing scene of Punk standing over the wounded Ryback was on target."
Bruno Sammartino being mentioned on RAW: "Heyman mentioning Bruno Sammartino was cool. Any discussion about the WWE Title can't realistically take place without mentioning Bruno. I'd love to see Bruno inducted in the WWE HOF in 2013 in his house, Madison Square Garden, along with Bob Backlund, Mick Foley, among others that are very deserving."
The U.S. and Intercontinental titles: "It seems as though, albeit slowly, that both the IC and US Titles are slowing building needed equity. I feel that it's important for both championships to continue to be re-positioned and it seems as that is occurring. I'd like to see them both have additional meaning come WM29."
The Prime Time Players on RAW: "I enjoyed the Prime Time Players verbal interaction with Cole and @JerryLawler Monday night. The idea is to get noticed and to stand out and I feel that O'Neil and Young did exactly that. Great example of maximizing one's minutes."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on possible celebrities in the Hall of Fame, Wade Barrett, Dolph Ziggler, Ricardo Rodriguez being underrated and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
