JR Blog: Lesnar at WrestleMania, Chris Benoit’s Son Wrestling & More

Posted by Steve Carrier on Sunday, November 10th, 2013

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.

Chris Benoit questions: Funny how Chris Benoit questions to me run in spurts. I haven’t changed my take on the Benoit into the WWE HOF quandary. Chris doesn’t belong there. End of story. If inducted, it would all be about the last few, horrific hours of Chris’ life and that would not be fair for the family’s that were affected, the other inductees, or the fans. For those fans who loved Chris’ in ring work, and I consider myself one of those, then watch him on You Tube, etc and call it a day. I do not speak for WWE on any topic but I’d be surprised to see Chris any more prominent on WWE content in the future than he is now.

Chris Benoit’s son getting into professional wrestling: As for Chris’s son wanting to get in the pro wrestling business, I have mixed emotions. My gut says stay away, learn a trade, get educated and lead a normal, productive life. One the other hand, I’m not big on telling anyone to not attempt to live their dreams just as I did.

Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania: I look for Lesnar to play a major role in WM30 in New Orleans but in order to max out Brock’s box office appeal his TV persona really needs structured attention and to get ‘hot’ before April. Not overexposed….just get the Hereford Bull hot.

Another Chris Jericho Invention……..

    So WWE is wanting GOLDBERG to come back to face Ryback at WrestleMania. And THE UNDERTAKER to put The Streak on the line against Lesnar. I have not come across ONE SINGLE FAN who wants to pay $60 for that PPV. And why should they? Both are matches we saw ten years ago, pretty much. (Come on, how different would GOLDBERG vs Ryback be, really, from GOLDBERG vs Lesnar? And I’m the only person I know who found THAT match more than disappointing) GOLDBERG HIMSELF said to a Miami Herald reporter a few months back that he isn’t interested in wrestling Ryback, and that if he did come back the only two guys he has a desire to compete against are Stone Cold… or THE UNDERTAKER. WWE apparently thinks that those “Goooooldberg!” chants mean that fans want to see GOLDBERG come back to take on Ryback. I think we all know THEY DON’T. All that means is that WWE fans have been able to tell almost from the start that Skip Sheffield’s character reboot is a painfully obvious attempt to profit from the real deal’s enduring popularity. No different than The Renegade was WCW’s poor attempt to drag out the recently-departed Warrior’s drawing power. That didn’t work out either, guys. Fans want to SEE the real deal, not an imitation, and trust me, they don’t want to see the real deal waste what is sure to be a one-match comeback wrestling the imitation. Likewise, fans don’t want to see THE PHENOM’s annual appearance wasted (sorry) on Lesnar, who nobody feels deserves it. Let Ryback face Sheamus, or Big Show – either would be a great match. Let Lesnar take on The Viper Randy Orton – that would be a terrific match. But GOLDBERG getting in the ring against THE DEMON OF DEATH VALLEY? THAT would be LEGENDARY. If you feel the same, we need to MAKE OUR VOICES HEARD.
