Jim Ross On Roman Reigns In The Royal Rumble, Bray Wyatt & Social Outcasts
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on Monday night’s episode of RAW and the Royal Rumble. Here are the highlights:
On Roman Reigns’ chances in the Royal Rumble:
Roman Reigns is improving in virtually every phase of his game which is not to say that he's a 'made man' just yet but he took a cold match vs Rusev and made the audience apparently care. Reigns needs to talk in sound bytes and NOT the long, filibuster type monologs IMO. I expect Reigns to win the Rumble and/or to get through the hellfire and brimstone only to figuratively get bit in the backside by the 31st entry in the Rumble match which might be HHH.
On Bray Wyatt:
The Wyatt Family had a solid night at the end of the show disposing of both Reigns and Brock Lesnar which created ample 'heat' going off the air for the go home RAW leading into this Sunday's Royal Rumble in Orlando. I'm still of the mindset that Bray Wyatt should be a character 'face as he could be a main eventer who sells tickets and merchandise with the best of them.
On the Social Outcasts:
Is creative angry with the Social Outcasts? The TV persona of this new faction was iffy to begin with but after Big Show ate them alive Monday night does that spell the end of the Social Outcasts? If so, why? It may not have been the idea of the year but it now seems to be on a short leash. Perhaps Kalisto could explain this to the masses.
