Jim Ross Blog: CM Punk vs. Ryback, Monday’s Raw, Lawler’s Return
Jim Ross posted has published a new blog. Here are some highlights.
CM Punk vs. Ryback this Sunday at “Hell In A Cell”: “Ryback vs. Punk Sunday inside Hell in a Cell is a head scratcher when attempting to pick a winner. Either Ryback takes his first loss or he leaves the new, WWE Champion. I’m as anxious to see the outcome of Sunday’s PPV Main Event as is the next guy.
“Unlike some fans with nothing better to do, I’m not going to over think it the outcome of Ryback-Punk. I’ve read some amazingly ridiculous theories on the WWE Title bout online but I prefer to draw my conclusions after I have seen the match. Execution, as always, is the key. That’s not new news or overly insightful but it is a fact.”
Raw this past Monday night: “Enjoyed being in East Rutherford Monday night once again sitting in for Jerry Lawler and working with @MichaelCole. I thought Michael and I had our best outing on Raw to date. As I am reminded daily by fans who follow us here or on Twitter @JRsBBQ, that three hours is a long time to invest in any TV show. All any broadcasters can do is our best to entertain and inform the audience and, above all else, attempt to embellish and better establish the talents.”
Jerry Lawler’s return: “I am not sure when @jerrylawler is going to return to work but I’m ASSUMING it will be this year which means sometime in November or December. I’m happy to keep King’s chair warm until the doctor’s say that he can resume weekly travel, etc to broadcast Raw on Monday night’s. Jerry’s feeling great and seems to improve daily. He’s relaxing and enjoying life. Every time I think of his heart attack I think of just how lucky Jerry is to be alive and that if he hadn’t been where he was when the attack occurred that he would likely have died.”
