JR Speaks on Barker/Raw, Batista’s Return and Breaking Point

Nick Paglino

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

"I enjoyed Raw. Bob Barker, in his 80’s, did a stellar job hosting Raw. A true pro in a unique environment came thru. Bob proved AARP members can still get the job done. Great work by WWE HOF’er Howard Finkel, too. Johnny Olson & Rod Roddy have nothing on the Fink who was cast perfect in his role Monday night. Great to hear Fink’s voice on TV."

"What “Breaking Point” bout will be the show stealer? Beats me as I write this. The Price is Raw concept was clever but did it overshadow the selling of what is likely to be one of the more unique PPV’s of ‘09? Has any got any info on whether the Undertaker has ever submitted in his WWE tenure? I can’t recall it. The Anaconda Vice vs the Devil’s Gate seems to be the story in the ‘Taker-Punk title tilt. Yes, I’m familiar with the “Vice.” Anxious to know the rules of the Kane-Khali Singapore Cane match. Cane on a pole, perhaps? I’m just saying..or asking."

“Jericho vs. MVP [on Raw] was an excellent outing. Hopefully, their bout will add more interest to Sunday’s PPV. Jericho is truly gifted. Y2J’s interaction w/ Bob Barker was damn good stuff.”

"Will Batista announce his retirement Monday in Toronto? I hope not…I think not…but he could. Big Dave has had to battle thru numerous injuries. When is enough..enough?"
