JR Speaks on Matt Hardy’s First Heel Promo, SD! Going Live & More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has once again blogged over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

JR on Matt Hardy’s 1st Heel Promo: "I thought Matt Hardy’s promo on Friday Night Smackdown was the best verbal presentation that I can recall Hardy doing. The key to coming off a hot situation as Matt is after costing his brother Jeff the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble is follow through. Friday night was a solid follow up to Sunday and it will be interesting to see how Matt and his issues are addressed between now and WM25. Smackdown is in dire need of viable, hot antagonists and hopefully the older Hardy can help fill that void."

JR on Smackdown’s Live Broadcast: "I haven’t heard this from the WWE but I read on the ‘net that Friday Night Smackdown will go live on Friday evening April 3 from WWE Axxess. I assume this is true and hope that it is true. Going live is the best for a broadcaster as nothing can replicate that particular adrenalin rush. The ‘live feel’ is what I miss most about not being on Monday Night Raw."

-JR on "12 Rounds": "It hasn’t really been mentioned much but I think the WWE making ’12 Rounds’ in New Orleans was a cool thing. The city needs the new money in circulation after our government dropped the ball big time after all the Crescent City’s hurricane issues. John Cena’s work ethic while making this physically intense film AND still fulfilling many WWE obligations was really amazing when one thinks about it. Cena has an freakish work ethic and is without question the face of the WWE. I still say that more often than not hiring life long fans like John who are jocks at heart are the best guys to bring into the company for training. To me, it’s a no brainer."
