Jim Ross On Surprises For Tonight's RAW, The Importance Of Tonight's Show, WM Business Predictions
|By Raj Giri||March 25, 2013 | Comments|
Tonight's RAW: "I look at tonight's RAW very simplistically. I feel the show is in a 'must win' situation as it relates to the road to WrestleMania but the same can be said for every Monday Night Raw broadcast since the Elimination Chamber PPV occurred. A heightened sense of urgency, from everyone, some timely surprises and a renewed and enhanced focus on the money match aspects of WM29 are imperative to nail tonight in Philly where the arena is sold out. Hopefully, the broadcast starts off hot and engages the live audience early so as to sustain momentum and build upon it throughout the three hour broadcast. Obviously, what ever closes the show needs to leave fans talking and create some 'water cooler talk.'"
Surprises on tonight's RAW: "As I write this, there is lots of online speculation as to who may be appearing on RAW tonight. I hear that the 'potentials' could be an impressive gathering. Time will tell and I don't have that info and if I did I wouldn't ruin the surprise with 'spoiler' info. Another good reason to tune in."
WrestleMania business predictions: "I'm predicting that WM29 will be the most lucrative event ever produced by WWE from a live gate standpoint, I'm guessing the live gate will be approximately $12M, and over 1M PPV buys."
