Jim Ross On WrestleMania: I Give The Show A B-Minus

WWE Hall of Fame
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross spoke with SI.com about WrestleMania 32. Here are the highlights.

On WrestleMania as a show:

“I give the show a B-minus. The buildup was somewhat tepid since they were scrambling around with so many injuries, and there wasn’t much buzz going into WrestleMania, so I thought the show overachieved.”

On Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker:

“Shane and the Undertaker both overachieved,” Ross. “They both have a very good skill set, and they’re both smart enough not to venture too far from it.”

On Roman Reigns vs. Triple H:

“The WWE kept believing their machine could make Roman Reigns a fan favorite by WrestleMania, and it didn’t happen,” said Ross. “That’s a matter of how he was booked. WWE has cast Reigns as a hero, but viewers do not accept him in that role.

“People gravitate to attitude. Austin’s attitude still holds up. Reigns became that defiant, anti-establishment guy, so people naturally compare him to the last anti-establishment guy, and that is Stone Cold. Those are awfully big shoes to fill.”

“Reigns was a victim of timing and booking, but WWE really has the table set for a special heel turn. Unless WWE is hell bent on casting him as a hero, Reigns is posed for a big turn, possibly as soon as tonight. He would make a great heel champion. Unless he’s deaf, Reigns is aware that the fans do not respect him. So there is a very real and organic story to tell with WWE pulling the trigger on a heel turn.
