WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently updated his blog on jrsbarbq.com. He comments on his thoughts on what transpired on WWE Raw last night.
Daniel Bryan's night on Raw:
Daniel Bryan was the star of Monday Night Rawand his in ring work the last 40 minutes are so was the most memorable piece of business on the three hour broadcast. Bryan has gotten over with the fan base the most natural way possible akin to a dark horse candidate winning a major election while running as an independent. Grass roots all the way for 'Fear the Beard.'Bryan's in ring action with Antonio Cesaro was brilliant. Cesaro may be the most underrated talent on the WWE roster.
Paul Heyman and CM Punk's promo hyping WWE Summerslam with Brock Lesnar:
The CM Punk/Paul Heyman promo segment on RAW was stellar. It sound PPV's and Punk, especially, came off as very real, extremely organic and NOT playing the role of a wrestler with a cause. Punk had filter free emotion and I believed every word that he said. Seriously, @CMPunk is not afraid of Brock Lesnar and their match, their first to my knowledge, at Summer Slam has me very intrigued. Curious as to the strategy, where it is on the card, what has to follow it, and, obviously, the outcome. For some reason, just an assumption, I could see a serious of matches between these two, gifted athletes who both carry ample levels of self confidence and defiance into the ring with time out. Time will tell.
His thoughts on MizTV on Raw:
Miz TV….hmmm…rough day at the office especially for my old friend The King. It was likely an encounter that Jerry would rather forget. Nice slap from new, villainous Eva Marie who apparently is still PO'ed about her hair.
