JIm Ross has posted a new blog at JrsBarBQ.com
, looking at last night's Raw and much more. On the Rock-CM Punk confrontation, the WWE Hall of Famer wrote, "The closing segment involving @TheRock and Punk was the unofficial kickoff to the road to WrestleMania in my estimation which will be preceded by a stop in Phoenix for the Royal Rumble and in New Orleans for the Elimination Chamber. I felt the chemistry between the two stars and their verbal interaction had an Attitude Era feel. I find it somewhat humorous that some fans and pundits are actually keeping score as to who got the better of the other during their extended 'conversation' as I felt that the true winners of the 'debate' were the fans. How one can accurately judge such a subjective piece of business such as we heard is a head scratcher to me but I'm certainly not saying that folks don't have a right to their opinion. Bottom line, and the good news, is that people cared enough to have an opinion. Most resonating statement in the final segment, in my view, was Punk saying that he was "Going to kick your ass" to Rock. That's what it's still all about...kicking one's ass."
Ross also updated his Q&A section as well.
If anyone attended tonight's WWE Smackdown taping in Miami, we are seeking live reports and spoilers. Thanks!
We'd like to send our best wishes to Percy Pringle, who's getting over a bad case of the flu. Percy is the best.
WWE has added an Alumni profile on Bryan "Crush" Adams. At some point recently, they slipped Jim Neidhart back up there as well.
Booker T noted on Twitter that he's in the process of expanding the schedule of his PWA independent promotion in Texas and any potential wrestlers interested should contact Kevberntx@hotmail.com.
