Jim Ross Blog: Thoughts on Mr. McMahon’s Return to WWE TV, Dean Ambrose as the New “It” Guy, Podcast News and More

jim ross blogA new Jim Ross blog has been posted over at JRsBarBQ.com, and below are some highlights:

With no John Cena on RAW, WWE rolled out Mr. McMahon which was a nice surprise. McMahon raised the stakes on the main event at Survivor Series inasmuch if the Authority’s team doesn’t win then they are no longer “in power.” I think that the authority figure persona has run it’s course, by and large, even though I have enjoyed the work of HHH and Stephanie the past several weeks. It just seems as if it is the same presentation over and over again. On a recent Ross Report Podcast in one of my opening monologs I suggested that one way to freshen up the current Authority figure personas was to have friction between HHH and his wife which could take on various incarnations and involve others.

Ambrose is the new “it” guy with Roman Reigns on the mend and it may be challenging for Reigns to unseat Ambrose upon his return. Notice I said challenging and not likely. Reigns still seems as if he’s the chosen one for WM31 but Ambrose is making a name for himself while the opportunity is there. Hopefully, Reigns, for his own sake, is doing a great deal of study and mental preparation for his return because if Roman returns unchanged then he has wasted an amazing opportunity to make himself better via DVD study, etc while off the road.
