WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross updated his official blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts on Sunday’s WWE Payback pay-per-view and more. Below are some of the highlights.
On Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles at WWE Payback:
“Roman Reigns and AJ Styles did their part and more in closing the show in a solid and at times spectacular fashion. I felt that match, in hindsight, had a few more ‘near falls’ for my taste, but it’s better to miss on that side of the equation than for wrestlers to rarely attempt to win a match. Both men demonstrated an intense work ethic and even though and the extra involvement by Gallows, Anderson, and the Usos might not have been everyone’s favorite BBQ Sauce it allowed our more talents to get a bit of a rub from the main event.”
On Enzo Amore’s injury:
“After Enzo Amore sustained a concussion after being apparently knocked out thanks to a stiff ring rope/cable and the show slowed to a halt early, the talents rebounded and seemingly put the show back on track. Luckily for Enzo, a talented and tough kid, that he was not seriously injured, but I’m not saying that a concussion isn’t serious because they obviously are. I’m a major fan of Enzo and Cass and expect great things from them in the future.”
On Shane and Stephanie McMahon running RAW together:
“While I am looking forward to Shane McMahon and Stephanie McMahon being the CO-GM’s of RAW and hopefully an eventual departure from the 20+ year run of antagonist authority figures in WWE on RAW, the segment felt a bit long for me. While fantasy booking this scenario, it’s hard to not to picture a Shane vs. HHH match at some point in time.”
