JR Blog: Tim Tebow In WWE, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar at Extreme Rules, NXT’s Enzo Amore
Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
– My idea that Tim Tebow might find success in WWE apparently struck a chord with some media types. It’s not the worst idea I’ve ever spewed. Tebow is young, 25, big and athletic, enjoys working with charitable organizations ala Make a Wish Foundation, etc and is coachable. Tim could be a positive role model in the ring and touch lives around the world via the WWE’s global footprint. (Of course, being a positive role model in the ring in today’s world often times means getting booed out of the building.)
Is Tebow to WWE a long shot? Absolutely. I doubt, but don’t know, that it’s ever been seriously discussed within the WWE. But it’s certainly an intriguing idea if for nothing else for a well constructed, long term storyline that could culminate at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans.
– From the feedback that we are getting here on this site and via Twitter @JRsBBQ, it seems that more fans are most interested in @TripleH vs. @BrockLesnar inside the steel cage match than any other bout on the card. BTW…this is a very unscientific assumption. The ‘rubber match’ between the two, physical individuals is intriguing and tonight should be a pivotal in the build to that major issue on WWE’s next pay per view.
– Keep an eye on Enzo Amore in NXT as he made a great, first impression on yours truly last Thursday night at the NXT taping at Full Sail. Significant, verbal upside. Not that familiar with his in ring work yet.
