Hall of Famer, and the immortal voice of Raw, Jim Ross, was like all of us when Brock Lesnar showed up at Hell in a Cell on Sunday night. What started off as a potential slobberknocker, ended up being c*ckblocked by Mr. Part-timer himself, Brock Lesnar. Lesnar’s appearance angered the entire WWE Universe, and it disappointed Jim Ross.
On a recent episode of The Ross Report, JR talked about how Brock’s appearance at HIAC was a "swing-and-a-miss" for him.
"Hell In A Cell – I enjoyed the broadcast on Sunday. I thought the controversial finish (and it was controversial) the Hell In A Cell main event, it did not adversely affect my overall opinion of the three hours and change that I invested in my life in that TV show. The main event finish did take the focus off of both Reigns and Strowman, which seemingly, was the goal. If that was the goal, then they succeeded. Now that finish is not what I would’ve done with the luxury (as you do) of looking at it in hindsight. Had a lot of bodies, wild west was there, on the cage, off the cage, the side of the cage, became that stunt show at the end."
"It confused me a little bit, which when you book a match like that – how would you book a match and not have a viable finish in mind? And I’m sorry, just for my taste and again with the benefit of hindsight, I didn’t foresee that that finish was what was needed. Just me, but I do know that the issue of the title is still open. There’s still a story there, and new players are at float, and who can trust who. There’s a lot of things that can be made of this scenario. There’s no honor among thieves, so that may stand big for McIntyre or some of these other dudes somewhere down the road, let’s remember that. It didn’t turn me off of the whole show is what I’m saying."
Good ole JR, always speaking the truth! Preach sir!
There will be a triple threat match for the Universal Championship on November 2 at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.
