Jim Ross comments on WWE SummerSlam, WWE Network, and Brock Lesnar as WWE World Heavyweight Champion
2014-08-18 15:48:49


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights. To order J.R.'s BBQ products, visit WWEShop.com.

-Ross on WWE SummerSlam: "I thought Summer Slam was a really good show. From the untouchable broadcast opening, which no one in TV does better within their genre than WWE, to the jaw dropping main event that unleashed the legit beast that is Brock Lesnar, Summer Slam was a 'transitional show' that we may look back upon in the coming years and say that was the show that changed the course of WWE. From developing Lesnar's next opponent, and his future opponents, to watching the evolution of the next level of main event stars, this is going to be an interesting notwithstanding crucial time within WWE as it relates to their 'creative' direction but more importantly, in my eyes, their overall booking philosophy."

Powell's POV: Lesnar now feels like a special event performer. It may be tough for some fans to swallow if he's not at every pay-per-view event (he certainly won't be at every Raw), but the big question is whether the shows he headlines perform well enough to offset any letdown factor there is for any pay-per-view events he misses. Ross is right about this being an interesting time in WWE and I am really looking forward to seeing where things go starting tonight on Raw.

-Ross on WWE Network: "The way to sell more $9.99 WWE Network isn't overstated marketing plans heavy on rhetoric and redundancy but getting the brand hot again and making Raw, and Smackdown to a slightly lesser degree, more 'must see.' The hotter the product is the more consumers will want to experience it in any form that they can including the Network which I personally enjoy."

Powell's POV: Amen. The company also needs to do more to address the glitchy nature of the live feed. It may have worked well for some in the viewing audience, but I received more negative feedback about the stream than any show that has aired on the network.

-Ross on Brock Lesnar as WWE World Heavyweight Champion: "Regarding Lesnar's dominating performance against Cena, too many people are already leaving/forgetting that performance and it's impact to look a head and fixate on who's next for Lesnar and how can it be possible that any one can ever beat him. Firstly, in the land of sports entertainment, a variety of things can occur to create the 'impossible' but my take on this is to see Lesnar sporadically defend the title, please don't live or die on the '30 Day Rule,' while new challengers are being developed."

Powell's POV: I hope The Authority states tonight on Raw that they are waving the 30-day rule simply because I'm already dreading the mock outrage from fans who would prefer to see their favorite have the championship instead of Lesnar.

Other topics include much more on WWE SummerSlam, student of the game on upcoming Ross Report podcast, adding value to the secondary titles, and more.
