Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Tonight's RAW: "With @TheRock returning to the live, Monday night RAW tonight, it kicks off WWE's 2013 TV year in a significant manner. Adding to the fact that the National Championship of College Football will be airing live as well, there will be a massive amount of TV households using television which bodes well for WWE's flagship broadcast. TV viewers are creature's of habit and channel surfing is the norm in today's world."
The ramifications of tonight's show: "I see tonight's RAW as a great opportunity for ALL talents to make their presence felt. My 'maximizing one's minutes' theory was never more timely than it will be tonight for everyone who appears on RAW."
If the Rock's return is bad for young talents: "Hard to believe that some on Twitter @JRsBBQ seemingly have such ill conceived opinions that the Rock returning to WWE to gear up for a WrestleMania run is a negative to 'young talents.' I find this flimsy theory laughable. Rock is a major attraction that will attract disconnected/former viewers and many new viewers who are fans of Rock's movie work. The more eyes watching any WWE program the better. Rock also provides WWE an 'outside the usual envelope' media buzz which is invaluable."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including looking back at previous RAWs that have opened the New Year, Triple H's return in 2002, his pick for NFL MVP, next week's 20th anniversary of RAW, NXT and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
