Jim Ross Blogs: Roman Reigns In The Royal Rumble, Bray Wyatt, Social Outcasts

Wyatt Family
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.

    I respect JR but for him to say that the social outcasts could have been the idea of the year is going wayyyy overboard, but then again we are discussing Vince’s booking do maybe he won’t be able to come up with anything better for the next 11 1/2 months..I do like his idea about HHH being the 31st entrant and beating Reigns, that’s a nice innovative idea, and if they really want to stress the point that they want to screw Reigns as badly as they can then they could even have a 31st then a 32cd and then have HHH be the 33rd because you know how Vince like to be overly dramatic, just one extra guy just wouldn’t seem like enough for Vince but also Reigns could beat the 31st and 32cd just to make Vince even more upset
    as for Wyatt being a face?? that’s a big stretch, his character right now has a lot more mileage to go and if the rumors are true that a sister Abigail is on the way?? well keeping him a heel for the time being should be the logical way to go

    I would want the WWE to announce at the begin of the PPV that the RR is now a 40-man Match. Preferably Vince announcing it with a grin. Or maybe even announce it just minutes before the RR match. That way you can build some excitement for 10 or 11 extra superstars(preferably legends or active wrestlers from the past) into the mix every 5 mins.
