Jim Ross says WWE Raw needed more in-ring action, defends the push the company is giving Sheamus
Dec 1, 2009 - 05:33 PM


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.

-Ross on Monday's WWE Raw: "I felt the show needed more bell to bell wrestling. Only two bouts in the two hours stayed with me....Kofi vs. Orton and HHH vs. Jericho. Good to see that Kofi is remaining relevant. Kingston's growth continues. I don't get too wrapped up in wins and losses."

Powell's POV: The lack of in-ring action on last night's show was disappointing. Only four matches on the show and only one of those matches lasted more than a few minutes. As for Kofi losing, it took big assists from Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. Anyone who thinks he lost momentum because he lost under those circumstances is crazy.

-Ross on Sheamus: "Sheamus did not lose any of his 'steam.' That was a positive. Too much negative is being made of Sheamus vs. Cena at the TLC PPV. WWE has to try and elevate new talents and Sheamus is getting a shot. He's a tough guy who works hard. Why shouldn't Sheamus be given a shot before he's condemned? Let's see how his match goes with Cena on PPV before all the 'internet experts' anoint this pairing as a failure.

"The theory is to get new bodies in the main event mix. It seems like it is damned if one does and damned if one doesn't these days with who gets the nudge to the upper regions of the cards. That just too much negativity. That's exactly why I delete so many emails as they are either overtly negative from start to finish thus depressing to read or they are way too long."

Powell's POV: I couldn't agree more. Sheamus is catching hell from internet fans simply because he is friends with Triple H. Maybe he wouldn't be getting such a strong push if it weren't for that friendship, but the only things that matter to this viewer is that he has talent and the company is finally giving a younger wrestler a push.
