JR Blog: Punk/Bryan vs HHH/Taker, Fatal Four Way, Christian

Jim RossWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are several highlights:

The WWE Title bout was the overwhelming show stealer in Raleigh. @CMPunk vs. @WWEDanielBryan had one of the best bouts that I can recall seeing in years. Was it better than WM28 Undertaker vs. HHH? Not in my view but it was damn close and considering the atmosphere at OTL compared to Miami that's a viable compliment. Plus, regarding Taker-HHH, I'm biased because I had the opportunity to call that one. Just being honest.

The Fatal Fourway at OTL was another outstanding outing where all four performers had their 'moments' and the match had many momentum swings. Sheamus is a big, tough lad who is getting more popular by the week and because of his tireless work ethic the Irishman deserves all the success that's coming his way. I enjoy Sheamus a great deal because he comes to work with a lunch pail mentality and appears to truly enjoy physicality.

Congrats to Christian for winning the IC Title. The Canadian veteran is considered by some to be one of the more underrated stars in WWE and without a doubt can have a good to great match with a long list of in ring talents. Plus, Christian is a real positive inside the locker room. It just seems as if it were yesterday when I signed both Christian and Edge to WWE contracts and now Edge is retired and in the WWE HOF and, hopefully, Christian will earn the same accolade some day.
