Jim Ross is back with another blog entry, which you can read in its entirety at JrsBarBQ.com. The most newsworthy item is that Ross acknowledges WWE is well aware of their ratings problem and are planning some big changes in the near future. “I am anxious to see what changes are initiated on Monday Night Raw this week as it seems that several changes are rumored to be on their way. Last Mondayâ<80><99>s lackluster TV rating for Monday Night Raw would certainly be reason enough to move these changes along as no one could ever be content with a 2.9 national cable rating.” “Personally, I am for longer match times and to see if some of the younger, talented individuals who have been developing, some for quite some time, can add to the mix and provide a “fresh feel” to the presentation. The announcers are talking less, which I have zero issues with quite honestly as it is television and not radio, but one could also make a case that the televised, talking segments could be more succinct as well. One manâ<80><99>s opinion.” “Itâ<80><99>s time to “reshuffle” the deck as the old wrestling expression goes and attempt to create new stars involved in new issues which might give cause for “business picking up.”
WWE.com has confirmed what I reported here last night – that Randy Orton has indeed suffered a broken collarbone. The injury occurred last night during his match with Triple H at the One Night Stand PPV. After blocking an RKO attempt by Orton, Triple H dumped the former WWE champion to the outside of the ring. Orton landed hard on his shoulder and was clearly in pain.
