JR Blog: Heyman’s WWE Return, Austin’s New Show & More

Jim RossJim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

Paul Heyman's return to Raw Monday night was a pleasant surprise. Heyman's skills help add star power to the WWE's franchise broadcast and his role of representing Brock Lesnar is art imitating life to some degree. Heyman's promo was effective because Paul wasn't playing a character that he did not 'feel' but instead was simply being himself…amplified. The promo was also 'money' because Heyman has a legit, emotional investment in the topic on which he addressed.

My wife is a fan of the 'Brodus Clay Experience' as I like to call it and I suspect that many females are. Clay beating a former WWE Champion Monday night was a positive step for the big man who reminds me at times of the Mid South version of the One Man Gang with a little, American Dream mixed into the recipe.

Congrats to Steve Austin @steveaustinBSR on his new deal with CMT to star in the new reality show Redneck Island. The new reality show is to begin airing in June and Steve is taping it now somewhere in Mexico, I think. CMT seems to be a nice fit for Steve on cable. For those asking, I do not know how those outside the USA access Country Music Television now known as CMT.
