Jim Ross Blog: Tonight's RAW, Winning The Royal Rumble Match, Orton Vs. Langston, The Shield
Source: JR's BBQWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
- Big night for WWE to deliver a major hit on Monday Night RAW. The Royal Rumble is slowly creeping up on everyone. There is still no bigger match than the Rumble match itself at this event. As many of the 30 entrants need to be talking about it.
- The reality of winning the Rumble match is massive within the storyline structure of WWE as it guarantees the winner a main event for the most prestigious WWE championship at the most massive event of the year, WrestleMania 30. How can that not be presented as any thing but huge within the body of the broadcast.
Theoretically, winning the Royal Rumble can be a career changer for any superstar. That's witty banter material for sure.
- Before I forget, I really enjoyed watching the Orton-Langston match Friday night on Smackdown. Big E more than held his own vs. the veteran and current top titleholder Mr. RKO. I've long said that Big E is a keeper and a high character former D1 athlete and high school state champion wrestler notwithstanding his power lifting accolades. The most important character trait for 'E' is his reliability and intelligence. I'd be shocked if he ever put himself in a position to embarrass himself or his employer.
- I'd also expect the Shield storyline to see another log thrown on the fire. Even though Roman Reigns is apparently the first 'it' guy to about to break out of the Shield, I still am solid that all three Shield members bring something different to the presentation and will all be main line players in time.
