JR Blog: WWE Travel Issues, Lesnar/Post-Fight Antics & More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Mayhem Miller seemed to go into business for himself when he stepped into the cage to confront Middleweight Champion Jake Shields who had just won a unanimous 5 round decision over heavily favored challenger Dan Henderson…The most negative thing that came our of this mêlée was that the ‘thug element’ perception that many casual sports fans have regarding elements of MMA was underscored."

"Brock Lesnar was professionally brought into the Octagon after Shane Carwin destroyed Frank Mir to set up the July 3 Lesnar-Carwin fight but Brock conducted himself like the big time, professional athlete that he is. Lesnar did not go ‘thug life’ or in business strictly for himself but did make me want to see Brock fight Carwin for the undisputed heavyweight title in UFC."

"My view on these calamities is that they are simply opportunities for talents to step up and turn head’s and the Smackdown nucleus has plenty of issues established to help WWE roll into their next PPV which is Extreme Rules in Baltimore."
