JR Speaks on Dreamer, Smackdown, and Styles’ Obama Blogs

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

JR on last night’s SD! broadcast: "Friday Night Smackdown was a solid show in my biased eye. It seemed like the 2 hour broadcast moved along well. Edge vs. Rey was excellent and their in ring psychology was money. I get questions from time to time about ‘how important it is to be able to execute a Moonsault, etc’ from fans but no single maneuver is more important than an in ring performer throughly understanding crowd psychology. High risk, acrobatic moves simply for the sake of doing them is essentially a waste of time. If they are used effectively within the context of the story being told in the ring then they become effective."

JR on Tommy Dreamer’s PPV Match: "Here’s hoping Tommy Dream aka ‘Big Beefy’ has a great weekend at extreme Rules. The veteran "Innovator of Violence" has an all or nothing scenario on his hands Sunday as in winning the ECW Title or saying adiós. Dreamer has earned a ‘moment’ if any one has and I for one hope that he gets it. Like my friend and fellow Hall of Famer Terry Funk, I am a Tommy Dreamer fan."

JR on Joey Styles’ controversial blogs: "WWE.com’s Joey Styles has apparently been Twittering a fair amount lately and blasting our country’s commander in chief, President Obama. While I personally shy away from getting involved in political debates, I don’t begrudge any one from expressing themselves even if I happen to disagree with much of what is written."
