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 whether The Rock and John Cena like one another: "Do Rock and Cena really not like each other? I'm not around either man these days but my instincts say that they aren't enamored with each other. However, I do not think that will do any thing but help the build to their match at WrestleMania. Each man may say that they love to entertain, etc but in my view they are both alpha male athletes who want to out shine the other at the big dance which obviously will be 'entertaining' as hell for fans."
Powell's POV: Can I pre-order the Rivalry DVD featuring Ross interviewing Rock and Cena about this feud? If WWE ever gets around to producing such a DVD, it could actually be more fascinating than the Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels DVD.
-Ross on tonight's WWE Raw: "I'm anticipating some interesting 'competition' Monday night on Raw as the show stealer, Shawn Michaels, returns to live TV to, apparently, address HHH regarding HIAC at WM28. Point being is that last week's Raw ended with the memorable verbal confrontation between Rock and John Cena and knowing how much HHH and HBK enjoy main event status, who will stand out the most in Boston?
Powell's POV: Ross went on to mention Chris Jericho and C.M. Punk as well. This is a loaded edition of Raw, as the only notable name that isn't advertised is Undertaker. He was advertised at one point, but he was pulled from the WWE and arena website advertising. Nevertheless, I'm looking forward to tonight's show as the build toward WrestleMania 28 continues.
-Ross on Shawne Merriman's Twitter feud with C.M. Punk: "What do you make of the Shawn Merriman twitter war with CM Punk? If Merriman's NFL career is on the ropes it's likely a way of garnering attention for the talented albeit controversial athlete. Perhaps Merriman is looking for a WWE career."
Powell's POV: Is meathead Merriman smart enough to target Punk in hopes of garnering publicity?
Other topics include the death of Doug Furnas, the big tag team that Ross doesn't expect to enter the WWE Hall of Fame, a Jerry Brisco update, women's MMA, and more.
