Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
If CM Punk should be stripped of the title: "I am not an advocate of 'stripping' Punk of the WWE Championship as many of our Twitter followers @JRsBBQ have suggested. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't even consider that idea unless Punk's knee surgery is going to keep him out of action for several months of which I don't expect to happen.
Kassius Ohno: "I'd be shocked if he's not an key player on the WWE primary roster in 2013. The world traveler is a smart, strategic, focused athlete who seems to be fully invested in getting to the next level and staying there."
What will close the Royal Rumble: "Already getting questions about what attraction will close the show at WWE Royal Rumble, @CMPunk vs. @TheRock or the Rumble match? I haven't a clue nor do I care as either choice would be fine with me but if I had to guess I'd guess it would be the WWE Title bout. Again, don't know and don't care as I will be watching one of my favorite PPV events of the year.
"My guess is that Punk will push Rock inside the ring from bell to bell unlike Rock has been pushed since, arguably, the @steveaustinBSR days. That's not taking any thing away from @JohnCena who wrestles at a different pace that Austin did or Punk likes to. How does even an athlete as gifted as @TheRock prepare for what awaits inside the 20 foot ring? Cardio is great but nothing replicates wrestling long matches better than wrestling long matches."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on if CM Punk will be at tonight's RAW, The Shield, UFC On FOX, yesterday's "Tribute To The Troops" taping, how Bruno Sammartino would fit in today's WWE locker room and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
