WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with his thoughts on Monday's WWE RAW from Newark, New Jersey. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:
Best Match Of The Night: "@WWESheamus vs. @HEELZiggler was the best match of the night. Certainly one of the better free, TV bouts that I've seen in a good while. If I had to pick 10 guys to start a new roster, these two would be on that list. Ziggler had an MVP like night and my only concern is his body holding up considering the athletic hell it endures on a regular basis. Dolph's the kind of guy that has one basic pace and that's all out. Sooner than later Ziggler will realize that more often than not that less is more is more than a often used wrestling Cliche."
The Shield "Thought @TheShield innovative promo that they taped themselves was well done. Promos don't have to be a mini series in length to get the message across in today's short attention span society. Nice job by the three new men who I've seen a great deal of in NXT. They get to live their dream Sunday night on PPV at TLC in Brooklyn. I'd watch if only for that reason."
Antonio Cesaro vs. Kofi Kingston: "Thought U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. IC Kofi Kingston had a really nice bout. Cesaro has that WWE HOFer Johnny Valentine quality of being a methodical starter of a match, being extremely solid and fundamentally sound, and exuding toughness. JV always took more time that most main eventers to get himself established but when he 'hit' he was entrenched where the promoter's wanted and needed him to be. In today's acrobatic, faster paced than needed world of wrestling, some fans who have never seen the art form of the business played out ala Johnny Valentine, etc will hopefully stay engaged with Cesaro who I think is a future, main event star. @AntonioCesaro is another keeper and building block for WWE.
