Jim Ross Blog: The Undertaker vs. CM Punk, Old School RAW & More

0

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:

Old school RAW: “Old School Raw is one of my favorite Raw’s of the year. I enjoy seeing the veterans return to the ‘scene of the crime’ and enjoy the adulation of the live audience. I can’t explain how good that makes a body feel. It’s the same intangible that gets in one’s DNA that brings back a star like @TheRock to perform live in a wrestling ring. It can’t be replicated or reproduced.”

The Undertaker’s return: “Loved the start to the show with the return of The Undertaker. That had to get social media a buzz and I’m relatively sure that the early evening, TV ratings will reflect such when they are released.”

CM Punk vs. The Undertaker: [email protected] vs. The Undertaker at WM29 will be special and a hard act to follow. By April 7 I’d think that a compelling case will be made that Punk could well be the guy to finally beat Taker at WrestleMania especially considering that this might be, I don’t know for a fact, Taker’s last WrestleMania event. I hope that I’m wrong on that but one never knows at this stage of the Dead Man’s game. Punk could become forever a ‘Made man’ by defeating the legend at WWE’s signature event.

“Would Taker being 20-1 or 21-0 make him be perceived as less than, arguably, the greatest Superstar over the long haul in WWE ever? Obviously not. I’ve long said that Taker will never lose at WM but not knowing the full extent of his physical condition and not seeing him in the ring since last year presents a great deal of unanswered questions. Am I changing my tune? No. but am I somewhat uneasy about the Phenom going into April &? Absolutely.”
