Ross Report on CM Punk, Austin returning and Sting at Mania

Jim Ross has updated his blog with comments on CM Punk, Austin hosting Tough Enough and the rumors of Sting debuting for WWE at Wrestlemania

from Rajah-

CM Punk’s Character: “Is there a better wrestling villain on TV these days than CM Punk? Arguable question but for my sauce, Punk is right there at the top of the heap with a handful of his peers.”

Steve Austin Hosting Tough Enough:Steve Austin is very excited about hosting the new season of Tough Enough. It will be interesting to see how much star power and expertise is put in place when the training staffis announced. My instincts say that Austin will have a strong team to help him with the trainees. This will be a great opportunity for Stone Cold to be Stone Cold and to re-engage his many fans on a weekly TV series of which I have great expectations for and will be watching and DVR’ing every week. I do not know the status of Tough Enough airing outside the USA for those that are asking.”

Sting: “The Sting stories that have been on line regarding him coming to WWE have taken a life of their own. Will Sting ever come to WWE? Does a 51 year old guy want to engage in an ambitious, road schedule or any schedule? Could a deal be done and all the pieces be put in place before WM27? Is Sting even remotely interested in re-entering the squared circle on any level? I don’t know the answersto these questions nor, would I suggest, does anyone but Sting himself.”

“Agreed, any thing is possible but what is feasible, doable, etc are questions that none of us can answer. I have seen Sting once in approximately 15 years and that was for about 5 minutes in Charlotte last year at the annual fan convention. I do know that he is a great human being after being around him for over two decades beginning when he came to work for Bill Watts as one half of the Bladerunner tag team with Warrior. They were known as Sting and Rock as I recall when they began their careers with the large Cowboy. Some of my best memories of calling wrestling bouts involved Sting back in the day in UWF and in WCW.”

 

Alberto Del Rio wins 2011 Royal Rumble

Alberto Del Rio won the rumble and will likely face Edge for the title at Wrestlemania

Final four are Cena & Orotn vs. Del Rio & Barrett.

Riley distraced Cena and Miz came out of the announcing chair and threw out Cena.

Del Rio won.

Orton threw out Barrett but then Del Rio immediately threw out Orton.  As he was celebrating, Santino Marella came out from the floor.  He had gone under the ropes way earlier.  He gave Del Rio the cobra and went to throw himout but Del Rio reversed and threw him over the top.

Match went 69 minutes total.  As far as the match went, most of the minor names were put in early.  there weren’t a lot of big crowd reactions, biggest by far were Booker T and Kevin Nash (as Diesel), but then both were eliminated immeidiately, which really upset the crowd in both cases.  In fact they were madder about them being eliminated.  Crowd seemed happy that Cena was thrown out.  The booking of the match was good and it was never boring, but nothing really special.  No surprises in the sense that aside from Ezekiel Jackson, throwing out Big Show, nobody who wasn’t a star threw out anyone who was a star nor were made a star and this is an easy match to do that.  John Morrison had a great spot where he was thrown out but landed Spiderman style on the barricade (foot never hit the floor), climbed to the top of the barricade, jumped to the ring steps and then got back in the ring.

Royal Rumble returns- Booker T and Kevin Nash

Kevin Nash and Booker T have been confirmed to return to WWE at Royal Rumble

from the Wrestling Observer-

There is a lesson to be learned here regarding shooting angles first and then trying to sign the guys up.  Booker T is confirmed to be in the Royal Rumble.  Kevin Nash is expected to be there as well.  Both canceled autograph signings scheduled this weekend.  Those in TNA and WWE both have confirmed Booker being expected at WWE instead of TNA on Monday.  When it comes to Nash, his name was just removed from the TNA roster (even though he had “left” the company months ago).  It is being reported he’s in the Rumble and all that does make sense but we haven’t had it confirmed by WWE people of that fact.  Booker T and Kevin Nash had been earmarked to start on Monday with TNA as part of  “They,” which makes Monday’s Impact very interesting as the only former Main Event Mafia member they can now bring in being Sting
