The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
JR on John Cena: “Not sure what most people think that a wrestling villain is supposed to be but for me it’s a guy fans loudly boo and buy tickets and PPVs to see said individual get beat up and to lose. So when we get endless emails here or Tweets @JRsBBQ regarding John Cena changing his persona to be a “full fledged bad guy” I become disconnected. There is a large part of the beloved WWE Universe who enjoys booing Cena and like to see John in less than positive situations. So, what would said change be exactly? Cena would get the little kids and the women to boo him? Come on, and forgo all that merchandise that he sells? That makes zero sense to me.”
JR on John Morrison: “Upon further review, it might make more sense than many John Morrison fans think for John to step away from WWE now that his WWE contract has expired. John has had a few injuries that rest and physical therapy will help greatly. Plus, he’s free to enjoy the holidays. I can see John taking a few months, perhaps even a year, off, heal, recharge his batteries and then return to WWE. Of course the obvious question from many fans is when will Morrison turn up on another company’s wrestling, TV show? Personally, I don’t see that happening but that’s merely one guy’s opinion. John is a talented athlete and certainly wish him the best.”
