“I’m very excited and curious to see what will transpire on @WWE #RAW tonight. I would PAY to watch it with @realmickfoley….#passion”

JR Discusses Daniel Bryan Controversy
Jim Ross discussed the reactions of fans to ending of the Rumble on the Q&A section of JRSBARBQ.com:
“For many fans the Rumble was perplexing. Especially for Daniel Bryan fans who are now rallying around their hero. I’m looking forward to staying tuned. I expect big days ahead for Bryan.
“How does one judge an entire storyline while it is still being played out? I’m not smart enough to do such. I do think that Daniel Bryan is more popular today and is getting much more fan attention than at any time in his career. I’m curious to see what WWE does with this matter. It’s far from over in my view.
“I think the Daniel Bryan saga is far from over and that the whole story has yet to be told. No one can ignore DB’s popularity. I’m thinking that Bryan’s more topical today than he was before the rumble based on the feedback that I’ve gotten.”
