JR Blog: CM Punk vs. Ryback at WWE HIAC, Announcing on Sunday
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
– The @CMPunk vs. @Ryback22 main event this Sunday at HIAC in Atlanta is one of the most intriguing matchups the WWE has presented in a good while. This new, PPV main event has certainly invoked a great deal of interest online amongst wrestling fans and pundits.
– I’ve done my share of PPV broadcasts over the years and I assure you that I will be nervous/anxious to do my very best work Sunday in a new role for me on PPV and likely within a challenging, three man broadcast team that I assume will be comprised by @MichaelCole and @JCLayfield along with yours truly. Damn right I’ll be nervous but I take great pride in my work and getting the opportunity to return to the PPV announce team is big for me.
– I see a ‘hungry,’ no pun intended, Ryback, whose WWE career has not been without challenges, fully realize the opportunity that has presented itself and will have the best bout that any of us have ever seen from the powerhouse. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. If any broadcaster goes into a show feeling negative about the event that they’re going to broadcast then the broadcast suffers and the fans get cheated. I’m not going to cheat any fans.
– I see Punk pulling out all the stops to make this likely, show closing main event memorable and to add even more respect from his peers and to take another step closer to legitimately being regarded as “The Best in the World.”
