Jim Ross comments on the WWE Battleground main event finish, the Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns match, responds to fans who are upset he has no interest in TNA
Oct 7, 2013 - 05:12 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 WWE Battleground: "Controversy abounds following the WWE PPV Battle Ground Sunday night in Buffalo. Many fans hitting me on Twitter @JRsBBQ with ample venom regarding the finish of the show. Obviously, it was a way to continue a storyline between Bryan and Orton. Pro wrestling creative is more subjective today that ever in my lifetime. Like most theatrical productions that I watch, I enjoyed some aspects of the PPV and wasn't as enthralled with some of the other content."

Powell's POV: It forwarded the storyline and left a bad taste in the mouths of pay-per-viewer buyers. I mentioned in my preview yesterday that I expected the title to be held up heading into Hell in a Cell and that there would probably be a lot of complaining from fans today, but I didn't expect WWE to deliver a finish as half-assed as that. The complaining is off the charts and justified.

-Ross on the Cody Rhodes and Goldust vs. Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins match: "The payoff on the personal issue involving the Rhodes clan and the Shield, representing the establishment, was spot on in my view. The spotlight was on Cody Rhodes as it should have been. Now, let's see where it goes from here and if Cody evolves into the main event level superstar that many feel he is capable of doing. Loved the post match nuance of the stars, both old and new, congratulating the Rhodes family. Plus, I got the one, Bionic Elbow that I was hoping for from the Dream. There is no doubt that Goldust can still contribute in today's WWE at least for the short term IE through WM30."

Powell's POV: This was indeed the highlight of the show. I'd love to see Goldust stick around through WrestleMania and beyond. Maybe we can get that Cody vs. Goldust match that Dustin wanted to badly for WrestleMania 29.

-Ross on TNA: "Another pet coon goofy mindset...When I say I have zero interest in going to TNA, I then get TNA fans tweeting me that I'm an elitist or an asshole. TNA has two great announcers in @MikeTenayTNA and @OfficialTaz. Both are my friends and both do excellent work. So, TNA doesn't need me to broadcast. Secondly, the last thing I want to engage at this stage of my life is to dive head long into more 'rasslin politics, pro wrestling madness, performer paranoia, and to even remotely deal with the lack of long term planning, start & stop creative planning, and the lack of a definitive end of the day decision maker, etc that often times just goes with being in the biz."

Powell's POV: Twitter really can be a glorious thing sometimes. There's this little option called "block" that I highly recommend. It's no BAN HAMMER (Dot Net Forum inside joke), but it's highly effective when it comes to ridding yourself of fanboys and lunatics.
