Jim Ross comments on confusion over Randy Orton's character, Big E. Langston winning the Intercontinental Championship, WWE Hall of Famer penning his memoirs for what will be a must read book
Nov 19, 2013 - 04:30 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 Randy Orton: "Is Randy Orton a fan favorite or a villain? One can't be both, as a rule....but, of course, I'm out of touch with today's product. I think that I may have missed the class on the invisible line between good and evil. In real life that may be true but last I looked pro wrestling on TV isn't real life."

Powell's POV: I guess he's a heel because he wants help from Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, but he's also one of the only people who gets in their faces. It was confusing enough that I started to wonder if WWE was going to book a double turn on Sunday, but that would be utterly ridiculous considering the history between Big Show and The Authority. Then again, most of the booking of The Authority related issues has been ridiculous.

-Ross on Big E Langston winning the Intercontinental Title: "Congrats to Big E Langston for becoming the IC Champion. I wish Big E nothing but success. The former Iowa Hawkeye Defensive Tackle is a beast of an athlete with great integrity. One can't get too many like him in any locker room. I got to know "E" well in NXT. Fans have loved him there for a long time at Full Sail Arena. Hopefully many of today's impatient fans will allow Big E to continue to evolve as he's not even close to reaching his potential."

Powell's POV: Hopefully WWE will treat the Intercontinental Championship differently going forward. If not, then we can look forward to Langston losing non-title matches to bigger stars on television for no good reason.

-Ross on Pat Patterson: "I'm told Pat Patterson is writing his memoirs and after seeing much of Pat's photo collection from over his career I'm betting the book will be great. Pat has a tremendous sense of humor and was one of the best in ring performers ever along with being a tremendous wrestling strategist. Pat's journey as a gay man in a largely homophobic, alpha Caucasian male, good old boys network known as pro wrestling in the territory days is one of courage and conviction. I can't wait to read it. I learned a great deal about the wrestling biz and life from Pat."

Powell's POV: I had the pleasure of meeting Patterson a while back and even at that time he seemed reluctant to write a book. I'm happy he's changed his mind because he really does have a tremendous story, and it could be a real learning experience if the creator of the Royal Rumble chooses to share some pro wrestling wisdom.
