Jim Ross Blog: Praises Heyman’s RAW Promo, Talks Seeing Brock At UFC 184, How Would He Book Rey Mysterio Now?

jim ross blogThe latest Jim Ross blog is now available to read on JRsBarBQ.com; you can read a few excerpts below. JR talks about Paul Heyman’s great promo from RAW, seeing Brock Lesnar this weekend at UFC 184, Rey Mysterio, and more: 

JR Praises Heyman:

On a broadcast that was heavy on promos/talk, HeymanHustle aka Paul Heyman formerly professionally known as Paul E Dangerly and Paul E Dangerously among other thing that we cannot print here, only kidding, stole the show. Great intensity on his promo because Paul believed every word that he said and his words were just that, his words, and not those provided him by a third party. If you want to study how to craft a promo, listen to this one.

JR On Brock At UFC 184: 

Saw Brock Lesnar while attending UFC 184 this past Saturday in LA. He caused quite the stir with UFC fans in Los Angeles and likely raised the stakes in his negotiations with WWE and, perhaps even Viacom/Bellator/Spike TV. At Brock’s age and with his past medical history, I’d recommend him to re-sign with WWE, make more appearances which would make his sponsors, like Jimmy John’s, by the way they make a helluva sandwich, and perhaps even allow Brock to better monetize that arrangement. More people will see Brock wrestling on RAW than will ever see him on any UFC PPV. The number of eyes on Lesnar via WWE over a 12 month period will blow away the numbers that he would garner in UFC or in Bellator. Plus, it would be safer one has to believe. My gut says that Brock would love to go back to UFC and end his MMA career on his terms but I’m beginning to wonder if that is the best, long term plan for him. I have great respect for Brock Lesnar and he was certainly one of the top two or three all time recruits e signed while I was in WWE and I’m looking at this scenario as to what’s best physically for the athlete who has a young family.  Nonetheless at the end of the day we all have to be happy with what we are doing for our life’s work and that decision ultimately can only be made by Brock himself. I will be a fan of his work no matter where he lands.

JR Talks Rey Mysterio: 

Good luck to my friend and a guy we signed back in the day, the amazing Rey Mysterio, who joined AAA in Mexico and who I expect to seen on future episodes of Lucha Underground that is a brand that’s starting to gain traction. If used wisely, Rey can still help any brand and it seems fitting that AAA will likely be the last promotion that the future Hall of Famer will work for in his in ring career. I would book Rey in tags which helps everyone in the equation and save his one on one matches for only very special occasions.
