Jim Ross breaks down Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin for the UFC Hvt. Championship, reveals where in the world is John Bradshaw Layfield, plus WWE NXT wrestler Husky Harris
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.
-Ross on Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin at UFC 116: "I still feel that this will be Brock Lesnar's most challenging fight in his short but spectacular MMA career. Carwin is, like Lesnar, an athletic freak of nature with a great, amateur wrestling background who can knock any human out with one clean shot. Lesnar's 51 weeks outside the Octagon largely because of diverticulitis is a concern for many Lesnar fans such as myself. For a normal athlete, fighting another world class athlete like Shane Carwin in one's first fight back from the unwanted sabbatical would seem illogical. However, and trust me when I say, Brock Lesnar is no 'normal' athlete."
Powell's POV: I'm getting more amped about this fight with each passing minute. Ross had much more to say about the fight in his actual blog. Remember, we only publish the highlights here, and Ross writes about a variety of topics that don't make the cut here, so be sure to use the link above to check out the actual blog.
-Ross on former WWE star JBL: "Got an email today from my pal JBL who was in South Africa attending the World Cup and handling some business. After leaving South Africa, the talented Texan will head to Bermuda for some R&R. Now that's good work if one can get it. John prepared wisely for life after the wrestling road and I hope that his former peers are paying attention."
Powell's POV: The only people who leave South Africa for some R&R are South Africans. JBL is clearly living the good life. Is anyone else surprised that JBL is a soccer fan?
-Ross on Husky Harris: "NXT note...there's something about Husky Harris that I like and it might be that he has a much different 'look' than do many of the NXT youngsters who all seem to be 6'2" and 240 or so pounds. If Husky ('husky' is the size pants I wore as a kid) can display charisma like his Grandpa, Blackjack Mulligan, the young athlete will do well in the family biz."
Powell's POV: I'm also digging Harris. The wrestling I grew up watching featured wrestlers of all different shapes and sizes. Here's hoping we get back to that.
