WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on the brawl between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker from RAW as well as how he’d booked their match at SummerSlam. Here are the highlights from that blog.
On the brawl between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker from RAW:
Great buzz created by the old school, pull apart Monday night on RAW between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker coming off the heels of Taker costing Lesnar the WWE World Title Sunday night at WWE Battleground when the Deadman made a surprising return to the ring.
Nothing on RAW from Kansas City came close to matching he emotion that the Beast Incarnate and the Phenom created with their physicality that was a throw back to another era but it worked like it was new. What’s old is new in today’s wrestling world by the way and the basic product doesn’t ned to be recreated. I wonder how many fans saw their first major, WWE pull a part ever on Monday night?
On Lesnar vs. Undertaker at SummerSlam and how he’d book it:
Putting on my booking hat for a moment, I would take the Summer Slam match in a different direction than the predictable Undertaker wins which necessitates a ‘rubber match’ between the two in April 2016 in Texas at Wrestlemania. I suggest that Lesnar win at Summer Slam, perhaps by a bad call by a referee that might even be ‘arranged’ by Paul Heyman, which necessitates Taker disappearing for a few months only to return in vignette form with an bone chilling message. Taker declares that he will have his FINAL match at Wrestlemania Texas and that he wants Lesnar. Taker has to know if it’s simply not meant to be that he can’t beat Lesnar because Taker has always found away to defeat everyone else that he’s ever faced. He challenges Lesnar to be Taker’s ‘career assassin’ and fight the Deadman and essentially put Taker out of his pain and misery, figuratively.
“My career and my legacy will either live or die in Texas with 100,000 witnesses,” the Deadman would declare.
