Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com, and below are some highlights:
Many have asked but I'm unaware of any new, @CMPunk news. I'm still hopeful that a mutually agreed upon resolution can be worked out sooner than later. I'd love to see Punk steal the show at WM30 and then chill for as long as it takes to get him back on WWE TV in a win-win scenario. If Punk wanted to take off until WM31, simply plan for it. The guy is too talented, has had a tremendous amount of TV time, etc invested in him and the roster is too thin to not see Punk back at some point.
Although I am no longer affiliated with WWE, I can't logically understand why any wrestling fan, unless they simply can't afford the approximate 35 cents a day, wouldn't want to try the WWE Network for 6 months at a cost of $9.99 per month. I'm ordering it w/o question. I don't have copies of all the WCW PPV's that I did that I'd like to go back and listen to again.
WWE really needs to hit a home run on RAW this week to build some much needed momentum for the Elimination Chamber. During a three hour RAW broadcast there is SO much info disseminated that it's challenging for any viewer of the three hour broadcast to leave the show at signoff and remember every thing that has been thrown at them. 15 commercial breaks doesn't help matters but that's simply the way it is and is not WWE's fault.
