WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBaBQ.com with some thoughts on last night’s RAW from Baltimore, MD. Here are some highlights of what he said about:
Daniel Bryan, Kane & Stephanie: “The Bryan-Kane segment was a memorable start to the program and plants a vivid seed for their match at Extreme Rules. I expect this match to outperform many fan’s expectations. Wondering if we will ever see any physicality down the road from Brie and Stephanie. Seems like it’s there if WWE wants to go that route at some point.
Evolution vs. The Shield: “Nice confrontation featuring the Shield and Evolution. Funny how many on Twitter (@JRsBBQ) want Ric Flair back in HHH”s entity. I don’t see it happening. Great opportunity for this six man tag to steal the show at Extreme Rules.”
John Cena: “Unusual position to put the face of WWE, John Cena, in with the fan vote and the fans voted the absolute worse case scenario and that was for Cena to face all three members of the Wyatt Family. The 3 vs. 1 vote/mismatch did equate to some compelling TV and back in the TV14 days would have likely seen Cena bloody. I am not endorsing the blood but simply stating a matter of fact as it relates to the ‘old days.'”
Bray Wyatt: “I’m not clear as to why featured villain Bray Wyatt has the audience singing along with him, especially a hymn, but I also don’t know the creative plan for the talented, third generation performer. Nonetheless, I’m interested in where the Wyatts are traveling. Perhaps that in itself is the point. I will be even more interested in the Wyatts if Bray beats Cena at Extreme Rules.”
