WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently updated his blog on Jrsbarbq.com. Below are some pieces of that blog:
RAW was an o.k. show with a hot ending. Therefore the thing that most people will take away from the broadcast was Seth Rollins turning his back on Ambrose and Reigns and apparently aligning himself with HHH and Randy Orton.
Or did he?
I always thought that Dean Ambrose was the natural heel of the Shield but I've got no issues with Seth Rollins doing the dirty deed even though in a perfect world I would have preferred that the Shield stay together a little longer. Apparently, WWE felt compelled to re-shuffle the deck which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'd assume that several dominoes will fall as time moves forward and the company prepares for a major push to Summer Slam. In other words, I'd assume that multiple cards are up in the air and won't land on the table until August.
Rollins can talk and is extremely athletic and those two traits are generally considered essential to be a successful pro wrestling villain. Rollins is a bumping machine ala HBK in his healthy, heel days.
Ross also comments on Bad News Barrett, Bo Dallas and more:
Surprised that Wade Barrett lost as apparently some feel that for a champion to lose in a tag match it isn't an issue. It's not when the champion is established but in this case….hmm. Just when I thought the IC title was being re-built.
Sunday night Sheamus was booed in Chicago and Cesaro was cheered. I'm just saying….
The Bo Dallas TV persona is unique but I need for the broadcasters to better explain him to me or at worst to pose more provocative, thought provoking questions for me to "get it." Like the Adam Rose character, Bo Dallas persona is going to be a work in progress for a while.
