Jim Ross comments on fans who are jumping off the Daniel Bryan bandwagon, Shawn Michaels to discuss the end of The Streak, JR's one-man show making a stop in a pro wrestling hotbed
2014-04-24 14:03:07


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 Daniel Bryan: "Amazing that some 'fans' are jumping off the Daniel Bryan bandwagon now that the highly skilled star has won the WWE World Title and the reason is that they feel that the 'chase' is over and therefore DB has no more challenges ahead of him. Has anyone noticed that Bryan is STILL smaller than virtually everyone he wrestles and is STILL an underdog even as the champion? Keeping a fan favorite in varying levels of jeopardy or peril works....it always has and always will. It has worked in films and in main stream sports since their beginning, which is why they keep score, keep track of the standings, and play for something at the end of the year."

Powell's POV: I'm not even a little surprised by this. It's a small but vocal part of the fan base. It's the pro wrestling version of independent music fans. There some indy music fans love underground bands when they can claim them as their own and hold their nose in the air because they're listening to a good act that hasn't gone mainstream. Once the band goes mainstream, the snob music fan can't be happy for the band's success, but instead labels them sellouts or claims that their commercial material is a far cry from how great their previous work was. Rather than follow the band, they move on to the next indy band and the process repeats. There's some element of that at play along with wrestling fans who always rally behind an underutilized underdog. Now that Bryan isn't underutilized, these fans will shift their focus to something else they can bitch about. By the way, Ross had more to say on this topic in his full blog. As always, we only run the highlights, so be sure to use the link at the top of the page to read his full blog.

-Ross on Shawn Michaels: "This past Tuesday night I talked for almost two hours with Shawn Michaels and it was the most compelling interview that I've done to date as HBK shares what it was like to to sitting at the Gorilla Position at WM30 specifically when the Undertaker's Streak abruptly and shockingly ended. It's a perspective that can't be replicated and that Ross Report Podcast is excited to premier on Tuesday May 6. Shawn's openness and straight talk makes this one of the most riveting and informative podcasts ever."

Powell's POV: Circle that date on the calendar. I am very curious to hear what HBK has to say about the end of The Streak.

-Ross on a Chicago show: "This week we announced our first show ever in Chicago which will be Saturday AFTERNOON May 31 at 2 p.m. at the House of Blues. Tickets to the general public go on sale this Friday April 25 via ticketmaster.com. There are only 80 VIP Meet/Greet tickets so please don't delay if that ticket is of interest to you. One must be 17 and above to attend our Chicago event @HOBChicago."

Powell's POV: Chicago has produced some of the most passionate and memorable pro wrestling crowds over the years. I suspect this will be a tough ticket in Chi-Town.

Other topics include Brock Lesnar, Steve Austin's take on marriage equality and JR's thoughts on the matter, Jerry Brisco, upcoming Ross Report guests, and more.
