WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.
Slammy Award Edition of Raw: With the Slammy Awards being held this Monday on RAW where the winners will be determined by fan vote on the WWE App, so here are my “votes”…
Superstar of the Year…No brainer…WWE Champion @CMPunk. Need I explain? Let us count the days.
Breakout star of the year…@Ryback22…making an impact and has reached PPV, main event status. Hopefully, for Ryback his best is yet to come.
Trending Now Award…well, I’d like for it to be #Sauceit but that would go over like flatulence in church so I’ll go with either #WWE13 or #Boots2Asses. @TheRock is the smart money.
Comeback of the Year…How can one have a bigger comeback than returning to life after being clinically dead for approximately 15 minutes? @JerryLawler wins hands down.
Kiss of the Year….really? Really? Hmmm this is something that I haven;t given that much thought to but let’s go with @JohnCena and Eve with @ZackRyder helplessly looking on from a wheel chair. Is there really “kissing in rasslin?”
Tell Me That I Did NOT Just See That…most shocking moment of the year. King’s heart attack aside…I can’t think of one moment that jumps out at me but the return of @HeymanHustle has to be a consideration. @TheShield impacting @WWE would be another. It’s a wide open category. What whacky incident won this Slammy last year?
LOL Moment of the Year…easy one..Daniel Bryan and Kane’s therapy sessions…hands down. Laugh out loud funny in a world where ‘wrestling comedy’ often falls on its face.
Match of the Year….I’m admittedly biased…WrestleMania 28…Hell in a Cell..Undertaker vs. HHH with @ShawnMichaels as special referee. I was surprised to get the call to assist in calling the bout and it was a career highlight for me. There likely won’t be any thing like that specific moment featuring three, iconic legends and HOF level talents in one match on that stage again in my career ever again. It was one of the most dramatically physical bouts I’ve seen in WWE in years and was the best match on the premier, WWE PPV from where I was sitting. Again, remember, I’m biased but that’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.
Billy Gunn joining NXT as a trainer: Happy @RealBillyGunn is officially a member of the training staff at NXT. Billy was one of the best, pure athletes that we ever had on our talent roster. Arguably, the best all around athlete we ever had. Expect huge things from WWE Talent Development in 2013.
