WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on various topics. During the blog, Ross commented on Paul Heyman’s promo on Monday’s episode of RAW. Ross enjoyed Heyman’s promo but noted that WWE should have advertised that Brock Lesnar would be on the show instead of keeping it a secret.
Ross also brought up WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels appearing on RAW. He said that the surprise was timely and it worked. “HBK had interaction with Roman Reigns who proved that for whatever the reason that many @WWE fans simply refuse to cheer for the polarizing and talented athlete.”
Finally, Ross commented on the final segment with Seth Rollins and Triple H. He noted that the close of the show was memorable and well done by all involved. He noted that it felt like the fans accepted Rollins as the protagonist and that he is being positioned to be in WWE. He said that no high spots had to be done, but instead it was crowd psychology and the fundamental application of the genre’s most viable dramatic weapon, selling and convincing one’s audience come along for the journey. “For those wondering, I fully expect Rollins vs. HHH at WM Orlando where Rollins needs a career defining victory vs. a future HOFER on the biggest stage of them all. Logically, why would WWE put Rollins on the show closing segment on RAW if they did not have plans on him wrestling at ‘Mania?”
