The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:


JR on Chris Jericho and CM Punk: “As I thought, Jericho/Punk had a spirited verbal exchange and I expect more between now and April 1 in Miami. These two talented wrestlers are out of the box thinkers and who have both traveled somewhat similar routes to earn WWE main event status. Their upcoming bout, for them, arguably means more to each man on a personal level as any one on the card which is saying a great deal… I’d almost like to see @CMPunk vs. @IAmJericho go on early at WM28 so that time limitations would not be an issue. This could be the best, pure wrestling match at WM28 and, if not, it will certainly be in the debate.”

JR on The Rock and John Cena: “Some talents couldn’t separate their day job from real life therefore feathers were ruffled at times and insecure egos had to be soothed. The final segment of Raw occasionally crossed the line into No Man’s Land from a content standpoint but that’s what occurs when highly competitive, motivated talents are holding a live mic and are in front of a passionate audience. How can one assume, as some have suggested to me here, that Rock and Cena will ‘cool off’ before April 1 now that they have ‘gotten things off their chest?’ That’s not how it works in this business. The duel of oneupsmanship has begun in earnest and it will carry over to the ring at WrestleMania. Guaranteed.”

JR on Sheamus: “Sheamus is rolling along impressively which may not bode well for the extremely talented Daniel Bryan at WM28. With every one talking about so many other bouts for WrestleMania, Bryan vs. Sheamus is the type of match that can slip through the cracks and be a legit ‘sleeper’ at WWE’s biggest event. It’s amazing to say that a World Title Bout could actually be a sleeper.”
