WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Monday’s RAW and more. Here are the highlights.
On Brock Lesnar’s rumored opponent at SummerSlam: Rumor has it that Brock Lesnar will likely face the returning Randy Orton at Summer Slam. Not sure if the rumor is true but if it is I hope Orton is ready for some suplexes on his repaired shoulder that has been problematic for Randy for a good while. Obviously the outcome of the Lesnar-Hunt UFC 200 fight could potentially alter Lesnar’s appearance in Brooklyn in August.
On the Cruiserweight Classic: Anxious to watch the WWE Cruiserweight Open that airs Wednesday night on the WWE Network and listening to Mauro Ranallo and Daniel Bryan broadcast the event. Mauro is a breath of fresh air in the land of wrestling broadcasters. Great hire by WWE but I’m assuming that my Canadian friend is getting weary of being compared to “JR back in the day.” Mauro is Mauro and that works for me and his fans plus I’m not dead just yet and still have some fuel in the tank which we attempt to exhibit on Friday nights on AXSTV for New Japan Pro Wrestling. Hopefully a few Cruiserweight talents will make an impact and find a full time home in WWE. It’s a smart, strategic move by WWE to focus on these deserving athletes who will all weight under 205 pounds.
On Enzo Amore and Big Cass: RAW/Columbus…enjoyed the rub that John Cena is providing Enzo and Cass. I’m a fan of this tag team and am hopeful that they help provide some additional life into the tag team picture.
