Jim Ross comments on Brock Lesnar and Triple H, Michael Cole crashing Glenn Beck's studio, Donal Trump entering the WWE Hall of Fame
Feb 26, 2013 - 01:31 PM


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 Triple H and Brock Lesnar: "The McMahon-Heyman in ring confrontation told a brief albeit short story that set up the HHH-Lesnar confrontation nicely. Lesnar needed, allegedly 12 or more staples in his head to close up a nasty gash that he received in a collision with the ring post. BTW the ring post generally wins those meetings. I am hopeful that HHH vs. Lesnar is a major part of WM29 and I have NO issues with this or any other viable match being a 'return' contest. Those that have issues with big time matches having a second go around have issues that I honestly can't fully fathom."

Powell's POV: Some fans always expect new matches. Some were complaining about Undertaker facing Triple H at WrestleMania for the third time last year. I have no problem with rematches as long as a good story is told. I don't view this as WWE being lazy and throwing the match out there at WrestleMania. I was not blown away by their SummerSlam match, but the hot brawl that opened Raw left me optimistic that they will deliver a stronger match this time around.

-Ross on Glenn Beck: "I did not miss Glenn Beck not appearing on RAW. As I've said,  I'm not a political animal and I hadn't even heard Glen Beck's name mentioned since he exited CNN. I'd suggest that Beck got more publicity over this WWE business than he has for any thing else that's happened in his career except when Bill Maher occasionally makes fun of him on Maher's HBO show. @MichaelCole handled the attempt to interview Beck extremely well and professional. Check it out on You Tube or at WWE.com."

Powell's POV: The footage of Cole attempting to interview Beck was a riot. He played it straight and the scrawny security guard and the uptight owner of the studio made it a lot of fun. My concern was that WWE would do something to acknowledge that their talent are playing characters during Raw. I have no issue with them doing that on Youtube, but I feel it would be a mistake to take viewers out of the suspension of disbelief mode just to make a point. WWE appears to have gotten the last laugh at Beck's expense, so hopefully they will just move on.

-Ross on the WWE Hall of Fame: "Amazes me how some who follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ or hit our Q&A section of the site can differentiate a WWE HOF induction for a celeb from an active participant. Donald Trump going in the 'celebrity wing' is essentially an honorary award and should not be confused with someone like Bruno or even a broadcaster like Mean Gene Okerlund. However for some reason there are many who feel that Trump is going into the WWE HOF over say, for instance, Macho Man Randy Savage, etc. That's simply NOT the case but many refuse to want to understand this matter."

Powell's POV: Ross also wrote that he takes it personally when people say the WWE Hall of Fame does not matter. That's exactly the type of attitude that Ross and the other Hall of Famers need to have in order to raise the prestige. It's certainly grown in recent years and I don't think that adding a celebrity hurts the cause as long as they stress that it is a "celebrity wing" addition. Granted, there is not an actual building and thus there's no actual wing for celebrities, yet it still differentiates the celebrities from the true Hall of Famers.

Other topics include John Cena vs. C.M. Punk, Ryback improving, Mark Henry dominating, Team Hell No, and more.
