WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross updated his official blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts on WWE Extreme Rules, John Cena hosting this year’s ESPYs, Seth Rollins’ WWE return and more. Below are some of the highlights.
On the buzz (or lack thereof) for WWE Extreme Rules:
“EXTREME RULES doesn’t appear to have a significant ‘buzz’ going into the event but I’m hopeful that it will deliver in a challenging format in WWE’s PG world.”
On John Cena hosting the 2016 ESPYs:
“Congrats to @JohnCena for nabbing the hosting gig for the ESPY Awards. This is a major ‘get’ for one of our most successful signees.”
On his opinion regarding Triple H and The Undertaker’s WrestleMania futures:
“Just my two cents, and worth every cent of it, but I don’t think that either HHH or The Undertaker have wrestled at their last Wrestlemania. I get these sorts of questions on Twitter @JRsBBQ regularly. WWE is a marketing juggernaut and they aren’t going to allow a once in a lifetime promotional opportunity like the retirement of two of their all time greatest stars fade away with a whimper.”
On the upcoming WWE return of Seth Rollins:
“When the injured Seth Rollins returns soon to WWE many speculate that he will be a fan favorite. No doubt that Rollins will be received warmly by those happy to see him back but it’s very doable for the talented wrestler to betray the fans and ‘break their hearts.'”
