Jim Ross comments on Jimmy Snuka's arrest, WWE Tag Champs New Day going for laughs, Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae locker room segment on Raw
2015-09-02 09:55:24


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 Jimmy Snuka's arrest: "The on going whispers within the wrestling business of the 32 year old, alleged murder of his then lady friend by Jimmy 'Super Fly' Snuka has finally resulted in an indictment of 3rd degree murder for the WWE Hall of Fame member. Snuka was one of the greatest attractions of all time in WWE and was arguably one of WWE's most marketable stars after finding equal success in the territory era of wrestling and in Japan, as well. It will be interesting to see how this case proceeds as the 72 year old Snuka was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer and still takes autograph/personal appearance dates to make ends meet. Hopefully this matter will finally be resolved so that both families, Snuka's and the deceased, can move on with their lives and find closure and a measure of peace. Let the justice system do as it was designed to do."

Powell's POV: As Ross noted, the rumors of Snuka's role in this are not new to people in the business or even those who follow the industry closely. I am very curious to see how this plays out, but I assume it will be a lengthy process.

-Ross on New Day: "Apparently New Day is going to be heels via simply being annoying as Hell and not by having legit, heel heat. I like the trio as they are highly entertaining but do you want your top villain, team to be overly entertaining or disliked? I've got no dog in the hunt but it would be awfully easy for this trio to be fan favorites."

Powell's POV: My thoughts exactly. I thought New Day were on the verge of turning babyface before The Dudleys returned. WWE has a popular tag team, so now New Day should be working to get heat rather than laughs. I am thoroughly entertained by the trio, but barring a double turn I think it's time to call an audible on their approach for now. They can always go back to the type of comedy they have been doing once it's time to turn babyface again.

-Ross on the Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae: "Not wild about the Summer Rae/Dolph shower biz as it's not believable and the more it played out the more eyeball rolling it became. Yep, I'm not in the target demo any longer but I think that I still know a good storyline when I see one and this one isn't it. Just one guy's opinion. The storyline feels forced."

Powell's POV: This story appeals to those who love the whacky sports entertainment nonsense. It will be funny to look back, but it's not so fun to live through. Remember when Rusev was a money player and not a comedy act?
