Great seeing my cousin’s progress in @WWE. Pro wrestling is a hardcore life – especially for the women. Proud of her and all the ladies. https://t.co/5Yuy6NlmbS
Jim Ross updated his blog recently on JR’s Bar-B-Q and posted the following comments about WWE Battleground’s top two matches:
I appreciated the work rate of the men and women who participated on the event from Philly as that’s always the start for me, effort/work rate.
Any time two major, main event level matches have little to no ‘near falls’ included due to the structure of their match i.e. the Punjabi Prison bout and the Flag Match, it’s a risky premise.
I’m still not sure that I could pass a quiz on the rules of the Punjabi Prison match which had challenging sight lines for TV through all the bamboo, etc. Those basic challenges can make it hard for the live audience to emotionally invest.
