WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com this weekend to talk about the upcoming Hall of Fame ceremony, Cesaro's match on Friday Night Smackdown, and more.
Solid Smackdown match Friday night featuring Cesaro vs. Orton. Amazing what a new pairing with do as it relates to in ring performance and viewer perception. The 6 man tag featuring the Shield vs. Bryan, Sheamus and Christian was strong as well.
If Cesaro can't be put into a position, either as a fan favorite or a villain, to be an impactful talent in WWE, it will be a real, head scratcher. I see Cesaro as a fan favorite moving forward. If not, how well could Cesaro do associated with Heyman after Lesnar takes his leave again?
JR also answered some questions about the evolving landscape in TNA Wrestling, specifically concerning the new on-screen "investor", former WWE Superstar MVP.
Been asked if MVP is a game changer for TNA? I don't know that answer but a company generally isn't "fixed" with the addition of one individual. I'm a MVP fan and hope that he significantly helps the brand. However, most of TNA's issues are merely one's that have been over thought as it relates to the presentation on TV. Long term planning solves many TV Wrestling issues.
Contrary to what creative types may try to sell you, TV wrestling creative isn't as complicated as, say, splitting the atom. Seriously, utilizing logical creative and sound presentation by the performers generally cures most of what ails TV ills.
