WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights:
Superstars to look out for: Throughout the Rumble match, talents will be provided specific opportunities to make themselves stand out and become more marketable thus making them more valuable to their employer. At no time of the PPV year does ‘maximize one’s minutes’ ever hold more true.
If, for example, Roman Reigns eliminates a dozen men, which would be one more than Kane’s record of 11, then Reigns can notch his gun even if he doesn’t win the Royal Rumble. Big E Langston is another young talent to keep an eye on tonight.
Daniel Bryan vs. Bray Wyatt: I’ve got Daniel Bryan beating Bray Wyatt but if it goes the other way I won’t be shocked. I can see an argument made for each participant to win in this match. As a matter of fact, the more I think about it, the more I see Wyatt grinding out a physical victory.
It’s official…Bray Wyatt will be the winner vs. Daniel Bryan.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Big Show: Part time superstar and full time badass Brock Lesnar has to get on a roll to monetize his obvious upside so I’ve got Lesnar beating Big Show. Brock using a fan favorite finisher, the ‘F5,’ on the near 500 pounder would be impressive. Something tells me that if Lesnar wasn’t aligned with the masterful Paul Heyman that the former Golden Gopher would be a MAJOR fan favorite in WWE. What is there to detest? Exactly….Heyman! (That’s a compliment by the way.)
