Jim Ross comments on The Undertaker and WrestleMania 29, new WWE wrestler Big E Langston, and Tommy Dreamer's return to WWE
Dec 22, 2012 - 11:00 AM


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 Undertaker: "Many are asking about the return of the Undertaker as mentioned by HHH Monday Night on Raw. 'Not seeing the last of the Deadman' can mean a variety of things, one can assume. In my perfect world it would be Taker vs _________ at WrestleMania 29 where 'The Steak' would extend to 21-0. For some Twitter followers who are seemingly hell bent on Taker losing at WrestleMania, I'd be reluctant for them to handle my taxes. It makes zero sense for "The Steak" to ever die, in my humble opinion. "

Powell's POV: I think we all assume Taker will be at WrestleMania 29, and common sense says he'll extend The Streak to 21-0.

-Ross on Big E Langston: "The addition to Big E Langston is significant, especially, for @HeelZiggler notwithstanding @WWEAJLee. I've seen a lot of Big E in NXT and he's a physical beast with uncanny natural strength and surprising agility for a 280 pounder. 'E' is no Clydesdale and his football background has enhanced Langston's athleticism. Aside from @TheMarkHenry, Langston is likely the strongest man on any WWE roster. As I have said here on multiple times, I'd suggest that you keep an eye on Big E Langston whose upside is significant. But, as always, 'Potential will only buy the groceries for so long.'"

Powell's POV: Langston debuted in a good spot as the muscle for A.J. Lee and Dolph Ziggler. I like the way WWE is inserting developmental talent in key positions rather than starting them at the bottom of the card. That said, I'm sure the old approach of vignettes followed by a slow build will still be used for some wrestlers. The key is to simply take the approach that works best for each individual.

-Ross on Tommy Dreamer: "Great seeing @TheTommyDreamer Monday in Philly. Tommy aka 'Big Beefy' was a hard working, honest, loyal guy when he helped us in Talent Relations. Tommy was a great overachiever who rivals Diamond Dallas Page for that distinction in my eyes. Both had/have passion, work ethic and were/are immensely dedicated to their craft. BTW those traits work in any vocation or field for the record."

Powell's POV: That was very good use of Dreamer in a key market. His involvement made a long 3MB match worth watching. It was also a nice surprise to see him wearing the House of Hardcore t-shirt.

Other topics include The Rock, Sheamus, Mick Foley vs. Ric Flair possibilities, Cody Rhodes, Adrian Peterson, and much more.
