JR Blog: Elevating Young Talent, ESPN Covering Raw, Iron Man

Jim Ross has updated his JRsBarBQ.com blog with his thoughts coming out of last night’s newsworthy edition of WWE Raw. Some highlights:

ESPN Covering Raw: “ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt mentioned that his favorite old time wrestling star was Kamala the Ugandian Giant. Who’d a thunk it? ESPN surprised me with their coverage of Big Ben’s guest hosting shot Monday night on RAW. The Steelers had a great time from what I could see which comes as no surprise. The Steelers QB has been a WWE fan for long time.”

Cena-Orton Iron Man Match: “Orton vs. Cena in an Ironman Match is my kind of party. I just wish I could help call it. I love time limits and the scoring system. Makes the contest feel more like an athletic event of which I personally like. IF this is this pair’s last dance then I expect them to rock it for the duration and provide us fans with a compelling story. This match could be a great way to end this rivalry if that is the objective.”

Young Talent Being Elevated: “Nice to see Jack Swagger look as if he is going to get his ball rolling on RAW. Swagger has the athletic skills to be awfully good if he pushes himself to the next level both physically and mentally. Miz winning the U.S. Title will shake up that area and the popular Kofi chasing Miz could result in some excellent bouts. Nice move in my opinion.”
