Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
RAW this past Monday:
"This is the second week in a row RAW has been short on wrestling within their three hour format. The promotion and the card for Summer Slam is imperative to the continued build of the WWE Network and some segments on RAW came off as filler having zero to do with the PPV."
"The Lesnar-Cena video was very well done and helped enhance the perception of the main event at Summer Slam that I feel Lesnar will win. Good job by whoever produced and edited that video."
His latest podcast with Sting:
"@PodcastOne had some technical glitches on posting the Sting Part 2 conversation on the Ross Report but they have been resolved. Hit podcastone.com or iTunes to download this show for free and better yet subscribe for FREE at iTunes and you won't miss a show."
WWE possibly combining RAW and SmackDown tapings:
"Someone with WWE told me that WWE was considering going back to the Super Show TV Taping concept where they do RAW live on Monday night and also tape Smackdown the same evening. That's a load of work....more than a load....but it would save WWE tons of money by eliminating the Tuesday Tapings. Time will tell if this cost cutting move will actually happen but it's a giant undertaking nonetheless."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on WWE splitting the announce teams if the combine tapings, possibly commentating an MMA event, Bill Watts, the Damien Sandow - Mark Henry segment on RAW and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
