Jim Ross comments on Daniel Bryan's big night on WWE Raw, Bryan's chances of winning at SummerSlam, plus the latest C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman exchange
Jul 23, 2013 - 11:04 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 Daniel Bryan: "Daniel Bryan was the star of Monday Night RAW and his in ring work the last 40 minutes are so was the most memorable piece of business on the three hour broadcast. Bryan has gotten over with the fan base the most natural way possible akin to a dark horse candidate winning a major election while running as an independent. Grass roots all the way for 'Fear the Beard.' Bryan's in ring action with Antonio Cesaro  was brilliant. Cesaro may be the most underrated talent on the WWE roster and had his 2nd bout that I've jaw dropped on in the past few weeks as his 2X3 fall match in NXT vs. Sami Zayn was off the page too. That match, I think airs after Summer Slam. For any one to armchair book and think that Daniel Bryan cannot or will not beat John Cena for the WWE Title because of Bryan's physical stature or his 'look' I'd advise you to think again. I'd also suggest that John Cena will have one of the best matches of his entire career come Summer Slam in LA."

Powell's POV: The ratings for this particular episode should be very interesting. One can only hope that the average Raw viewer enjoyed the story that was told with Bryan during that 40-minute stretch as much as the online fans did.

-Ross on C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman: The CM Punk/ Paul Heyman promo segment on RAW was stellar. It sound PPV's and Punk, especially, came off as very real, extremely organic and NOT playing the role of a wrestler with a cause. Punk had filter free emotion and I believed every word that he said. Seriously, @CMPunk is not afraid of Brock Lesnar and their match, their first to my knowledge, at SummerSlam has me very intrigued. Curious as to the strategy, where it is on the card, what has to follow it, and, obviously, the outcome. For some reason, just an assumption, I could see a serious of matches between these two, gifted athletes who both carry ample levels of self confidence and defiance into the ring with time out. Time will tell."

Powell's POV: SummerSlam looks great on paper with only two matches announced. It feels like one of those years when WWE is trying to load up the summer show rather than get by based mostly on the name of the event. Punk and Heyman were fantastic again and I'll have more to say about them in my WWE Raw Hit List later today.
