JR Blog: Damien Sandow, HIAC At ‘Mania, WWE Title Picture, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on Here are some highlights from this entry:

- Many fans are still buzzing about the return of the enigma known as Brock Lesnar. Lesnar is a complex, dominating and driven athlete who made an immediate impact last week when he F5′ed John Cena without warning.

- The WWE Title picture certainly became even more interesting Monday night when reigning Champion @CMPunk found himself with a bull’s eye on his chest not only from the challenge last week of Mark Henry but also from the renewed pursuit of Chris Jericho @IAmJericho, @TheRock who said that he would be WWE Champion again, @JohnCena who always has his sights set on the top prize in WWE plus Brock Lesnar who certainly feels that he is the alpha male in WWE but to validate such must be WWE Champion.

- After watching HIAC from WM28, challenging because I don’t like listening to myself (I know…I could have muted the sound but my wife wanted to hear the commentary) I am hard pressed to name any match that was more better executed that what I saw between HHH and Undertaker. Their match stole the show, in my opinion, and was one of the best bouts that I ever had the honor of calling. The gutteral physicality was extraordinary.

I don’t have a crystal ball but I’d be surpirsed to see HHH, @ShawnMichaels and the Undertaker, all together, ever being in the ring as participants at a WrestleMania or any other WWE event ever again. The final chapter of an amazing book was seemingly written and the book closed on Sunday in Miami.

- Speaking of FCW, keep an eye on Damien Sandow who debuted on Smackdown Friday night. He’s bright, athletic and motivated. I fully expect him to be successful at the next level. I love his ‘Lou Thesz-like’ robe and towel combo. I have high expectations for Sandow who’s got a solid work ethic and is a student of the game notwithstanding a well spoken individual.

Punk Responds To Report Over Being “Too Small”

CM Punk responded to a report published here today stating concern among WWE officials that the reigning champion is “too small” to adequately face Brock Lesnar in a potential match-up. The report also acknowledged management’s concern over Punk’s appearance backstage as he often looks beaten and battered.

Punk stated Monday afternoon, “Dirt sheets can call me small, skinny, beat up, road-tired, fat, ugly, no friends etc…everyone else calls me champ. Everyone.”

ESPN Reporter Says 1.9 Mil Brought WrestleMania 28

Gus Ramsey, a reporter for ESPN, stated on Twitter Wednesday that WrestleMania 28 garnered 1.9 million pay-per-view buys.

“accidentally deleted my earlier tweet. Rock and Brock each sign 1 year deals. WM28 did 1.9M buys. WWE was targeting 1.5M,” he wrote.

The message has since been deleted.


Lesnar’s WWE Return, Why He Didn’t Appear at WrestleMania 28

Brock Lesnar signed his one-year deal with WWE before he arrived in Miami during WrestleMania 28 weekend. The decision was made over the weekend to keep Lesnar off WrestleMania and have him return on RAW the next night.

The main reason for keeping him off WrestleMania was to not cloud the end of the story between John Cena vs. The Rock because the idea is for Lesnar to be kicking off a “new chapter.”


Morale Down with WWE Writers

Morale is said to be low among some of the WWE writers after some were not invited to the post-WrestleMania 28 party. The main writers like Brian Gewirtz, Ed Koskey and Michael Hayes were there.

Randy Orton Scrapped From "Marine: Homefront"

From TMZ:

WWE superstar Randy Orton has been 86'd from the lead role in the upcoming movie "Marine: Homefront" ... amidst outrage from several Devil Dogs who claim Randy deserted them during his brief stint in the USMC.

A rep for WWE tells us, "WWE demonstrated poor judgment in signing Randy Orton for the 3rd installment of the film."

The rep adds, "Despite Randy's popularity, the fact that he was dishonorably discharged from the USMC made it inappropriate for him to be cast in this film."

The move will surely satisfy Cpl. Mike Vinn ... one of Randy's former unit members who was FURIOUS the wrestler was ever up for the role in the first place ... since Orton received a bad conduct discharge in 1999 after going AWOL on two separate occasions and disobeying an order from a commanding officer.

Orton was court-martialed and served 38 days in a military prison.

Before Orton was scrapped from the project, Vinn told TMZ, "I am disgusted that his face and the word Marine are being used next to each other -- real or fake -- because of the fact that he quit us, the country, and the Marine Corps. [Randy] in the role of a Marine is a disgrace to those that have worn and are wearing that uniform."


Ross Comments on the Return of Brock Lesnar

John Cena called The Rock out to the ring at the conclusion of Monday’s Raw SuperShow, but was instead greeted with a brutal F5 courtesy of Brock Lesnar. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross went on Twitter to address the recently-retired mixed martial artist’s shocking return to sports entertainment.

“Why’s Brock Lesnar back? I’d suggest 2 earn BIG money. He’s done w/ UFC & still young. He’s a complex, supreme athlete. Interesting times,” he wrote.

Ross continued, “I don’t know of Lesnar’s contractual matters w/ WWE. None of our business. I did his 1st few deals. Let’s not over think this. Brock’s back!”

Ross also responded to a remark stating that he once said that Lesnar would never return to WWE, writing, “Never full time IMO. But enough to matter.”

Is Lesnar and Cena Waiting a Year Worth the Gamble?

Monday Night, the Raw after WrestleMania XXVIII got off to a quick start, but had an even bigger ending.

The games played between Vince McMahon and the WWE paid off, as former WWE Champ Brock Lesnar made his huge return in the final segment when he gave John Cena an F-5.

The last time we saw Lesnar in a WWE ring was WrestleMania XX, when he lost an awful match to Bill Goldberg, which was the last WWE match for both he and Bill, and was basically a showcase for Steve Austin, who was the guest ref.

The first thought is that the WWE is going to pull a replay, and have Lesnar and Cena stay apart for a year, just like the 12 month wait we just had for Rock and Cena, that paid off in a match that a lot thought wasn't as good as we waited for.

No doubt that Lesnar didn't look from the TV point of view like the guy we remember taking over the WWE with Paul Heyman back in the late 90's. He looked flat, a lot smaller, and nowhere near the 260 that Michael Cole said he was.

Now the game of poker shifts to timing. Does the WWE play the same game and make the fans wait a year for Cena-Lesnar in NY for WM 29? Or do we push it up quicker, maybe having a match at SummerSlam or even sooner?

There's a thought to make the two stay away from each other, but what sense does that make after what happened on Monday night?

It's another WWE gamble, but one that at least Monday night got one of the bigger pops we've seen in quite a long time.

WWE Releases 5th Cryptic 1/2/12 Video Entitled ‘Prophetless’

WWE released its fifth consecutive cryptic video suggesting a return on January 2, 2012 tonight on RAW. This week’s video features the same young girl featured in the previous videos pushing a boy’s notebook off his classroom desk. The girl then says, “I cannot help you anymore. Do you understand?” The word featured at the end of the video this week is “prophetless”

As noted over the past few weeks, it’s strongly believed that the vignettes are promoting the return of Chris Jericho, who was last seen on WWE television in September of 2010 when he was written off after he was punted in the head by Randy Orton.

Chris Jericho has been denying the reports on his Twitter feed as of late, but many believe that he may doing so to throw off his followers on the social media website. As of last week, Jericho was in negotiations with WWE are were described as going well. His return, if he comes to negotiations with WWE, is expected to be what is described as “Rock-esque,” as in coming in for a few angles and then possibly leaving again to focus on his band Fozzy.

One possible WrestleMania 28 return match that has been tossed around backstage is a possible match with current WWE Champion CM Punk.
