Jim Ross Blog: Elimination Chamber Thoughts, WWE "Getting It Right" With Daniel Bryan, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. As always, you can purchase JR's BBQ products on WWEshop.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:

- Loved the 6 Man Tag featuring the Shield and the Wyatt's. Best match of the night in my opinion. All 6 men distinguished themselves and as I tweeted Sunday night @JRsBBQ all of them have come a long way from Dale Mabry in Tampa..Full Sail in Orlando...to being a featured attraction on a WWE PPV. As a former consultant to the developmental team, I was very proud of the athletes. WWE has six guys on the two units who all, in their own way, are going to be contributors to the company.

Thought the six athlete's efforts inside the Chamber was stellar. This is a painful match to watch not just from ringside but at home on PPV as well. The steel is unforgiving and damaging on the bodies of every man in it. Some fans, as I previously mentioned, did not like the ending of the match as they felt that Daniel Bryan should have became the WWE Champion. I won't go into my thought process on the slow burn theory of booking but it does work but, admittedly, only if it is timely re: pulling the trigger. That's a subjective matter, a gut feeling issue, and there is no proven formula for pulling the trigger.

I do know that when it says "card subject to change" that it means any thing can happen and based on current events and if I was a passionate, Daniel Bryan fan of which there seems to be many, I'd MUCH rather see DB have his 'moment' at WM30 than elsewhere.

- My thinking is that with the WWE Network launching that the card at WM30 is somewhat fluid and will evolve in multiple ways to maximize the selling of the Network which means stay tuned and try, if one can, to simply be patient to the story arc that is in place.

Remember...it's TV Wrestling and not real life and nothing that happens on a TV Wrestling show is nearly as important as what one does at school, at work with their families, etc. While I admire the passion of the fans, I wish that some weren't so disrespectful while hiding behind a keyboard.

Mu instincts tell me that WWE will get it 'right' at WM30 in NOLA even though some fans will b---h at "Why did it take so long" or "I'm not a Daniel Bryan fan."

- RAW should be a red hot show tonight with the return of Hulk Hogan and others. I can easily see the WM30 card being massaged tonight while additional viewers are watching.
