Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Cesaro as a heel:
"Not sure why as a fan I should dislike Cesaro and it can't be simply because he's aligned himself with Paul Heyman. Cesaro simply outwrestles people and is damned impressive while doing it. Some of Cesaro's matches down in NXT the last year or so were better than anyone on RAW was having at the time."
The Shield angle on RAW:
"Significant heat going off the air on The Shield who were outnumbered and eliminated by a cast of thousands and then decimated by the reunited Evolution. Certainly sets up a nice match at Extreme Rules between Evolution and the Shield."
"Seems like TNA is signing their core talents whose contracts are either up or in need of revising. WWE has seemingly made it clear that they have no interest in Impact talents and will instead reply on their Performance Center for their future stars. However, with Jeff Jarrett preparing to launch another promotion it makes sense for TNA to be proactive."
His upcoming show in Toronto:
"Tickets for our first ever Canadian show, RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross are on sale now at ticketmaster.ca for Friday May 9 in Toronto at the Danforth Music Hall. VIP Meet and Greet tickets are limited and the M&G with autograph and photo ops will take place before the show. Doors open at 8 and the show starts at 9 and we will be doing one show only. JR's products will also be available for purchase at our event as well. This is our biggest venue to date but I'm confident that, as usual, the Canadian fans will come through."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on Rob Van Dam's return, the Ultimate Warrior tribute on RAW, problems with how heels are presented and much more.
