Jim Ross Blog: Monday’s RAW, Randy Orton, Langston’s Title Win, Pat Patterson

8

The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross.

On Randy Orton: “Is Randy Orton a fan favorite or a villain? One can’t be both, as a rule….but, of course, I’m out of touch with today’s product. I think that I may have missed the class on the invisible line between good and evil. In real life that may be true but last I looked pro wrestling on TV isn’t real life.”

On Big E. Langston: “Congrats to Big E Langston for becoming the IC Champion. I wish Big E nothing but success. The former Iowa Hawkeye Defensive Tackle is a beast of an athlete with great integrity. One can’t get too many like him in any locker room. I got to know “E” well in NXT. Fans have loved him there for a long time at Full Sail Arena. Hopefully many of today’s impatient fans will allow Big E to continue to evolve as he’s not even close to reaching his potential.”

On Pat Patterson: “I’m told Pat Patterson is writing his memoirs and after seeing much of Pat’s photo collection from over his career I’m betting the book will be great. Pat has a tremendous sense of humor and was one of the best in ring performers ever along with being a tremendous wrestling strategist. Pat’s journey as a gay man in a largely homophobic, alpha Caucasian male, good old boys network known as pro wrestling in the territory days is one of courage and conviction. I can’t wait to read it. I learned a great deal about the wrestling biz and life from Pat.”
