Jim Ross Blog: TLC Fallout, WWE Signing Mauro Ranallo

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog over at with his thoughts on last night’s TLC pay-per-view. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus:

“Sheamus and Reigns went strong style in the WWE Title Match with TLC Rules. I’d certainly hope that logic prevails and neither wrestle tonight especially if Reigns is forced to wrestle in a handicap match for punishment which seems to be worn thin. The post match execution and presentation focusing on an outraged animal, Reigns, was the best Roman has arguably ever looked as a fan favorite. Hopefully, Reigns won’t wrestle tonight on RAW especially in the handicap, punishment matches that are often used or made to do any long promos on RAW. Think Eastwood, a badass dude who lets his actions do most of the talking.”

Reigns Destroying Triple H:

“HHH sold magnificently for what was being done to him. Text book example of how important ‘selling’ is today and forever in the wrestling business. The Reigns vs. Authority storyline feels a great deal like Austin-McMahon back in the day, but that formula worked because it was organic, logical and well executed. Can Roman and the Authority replicate with comparable success? If they can they that will solve many creative debates. The follow-up on TV with Reigns is imperative Monday night on RAW. No room for error after last night. Momentum can be lost as quickly as it is earned.”

WWE Signing Mauro Ranallo:

“Congrats to my pal Mauro Ranallo for nabbing the lead Smackdown broadcaster role beginning in January when Smackdown moves to the USA Network. Mauro is a great broadcaster who will immediately enhance the sound of SD and make for a more unique audio especially if he’s paired with Jerry Lawler and Booker T. Excellent hire by WWE and I wish my friend a wonderful run in WWE. I couldn’t be happier for all involved.”
