Punk vs Bryan At Wrestlemania?
Jim Ross updated the Q&A section of JRSBARBQ.com and gave his thoughts on CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania:
“On the surface, yes, but it’s all about the presentation and the reason for them wrestling. It’s unlikely to occur but I have no idea of the WM30 card.”
JR also discussed the idea of Seth Rollins fading away if the Shield broke up:
“It doesn’t concern me what ‘many people’ say regarding Seth Rollins. He’s a great talent who will have a significant run on his own when the time is right.”
Randy Orton Inspired Cody Rhodes To Wrestle
In a recent interview with thewhig.com Cody Rhodes said it was Randy Orton who inspired him to wrestle:
“I kind of thought that I was too small to be in sports entertainment. I didn’t know if I was going to have the size, so I thought, ‘Well if I can’t be in sports entertainment, I’ll be in entertainment’ … movies and such.”
“I went to Hollywood and I got myself into an acting studio out there, but the whole time I was out there — everybody day dreams and has goals — I was thinking, ‘Well as soon as I hit it big here, it won’t matter if I don’t have the size or not, I can go to the WWE.’”
“It was the absolute backward way of thinking. (After) 10 months of that, I realized that, watching different second- and third-generation (wrestlers), specifically Randy Orton, on TV, I thought, ‘He had a father who really made a mark for himself and he has no fear of that and I shouldn’t either.’”
