Jim Ross Blog: The Finish To Orton vs. Bryan, Rhodes Family vs. The Shield
The Main Event Finish: Controversy abounds following the WWE PPV Battle Ground Sunday night in Buffalo. Many fans hitting me on Twitter @JRsBBQ with ample venom regarding the finish of the show. Obviously, it was a way to continue a storyline between Bryan and Orton. Pro wrestling creative is more subjective today that ever in my lifetime. Like most theatrical productions that I watch, I enjoyed some aspects of the PPV and wasn’t as enthralled with some of the other content.
The Rhodes Family vs. The Shield The payoff on the personal issue involving the Rhodes clan and the Shield, representing the establishment, was spot on in my view. The spotlight was on Cody Rhodes as it should have been. Now, let’s see where it goes from here and if Cody evolves into the main event level superstar that many feel he is capable of doing.
Loved the post match nuance of the stars, both old and new, congratulating the Rhodes family. Plus, I got the one, Bionic Elbow that I was hoping for from the Dream. There is no doubt that Goldust can still contribute in today’s WWE at least for the short term IE through WM30.
