JR's RAW Thoughts..Punk-Lesnar Submission Ending?..UK Tour Update..2K Sports..Johnny Football..Hard Knocks..Man U vs. Chelsea

Hello from sultry, Norman, Oklahoma! Stock up on JR's delicious products online at http://www.wweshop.com or in Manchester, England at http://www.americansoda.co.uk. Your support of our family brand is greatly appreciated. LET'S GRILL!! 

Enjoyed Raw Monday night from Green Bay. WWE did a nice job of focusing on the two, main event bouts, Cena vs. Bryan and Punk vs. Lesnar. 

There seems to be multiple twists and turns as to where the WWE Title situation may evolve. With the McMahon Family involved, the likely show closing main event could end in a myriad of manners. Obviously one can't omit MITB winner Randy Orton from this scenario either.  

I think that Bryan and Cena will match up well and with the added elements that could be put into play, this match should be excellent. No reason for it not to be. It could be a match of the year candidate and, arguably, might not be the match of the night.   

Loved the physicality of the Punk- Lesnar business in Title Town, sorry, Packer haters. I expect to see plenty of slobber knockers from these two at Summer Slam. Both men like to be physical and to push their adversaries to the limit which endears both to me. What if I said that I think that this match could well end in a submission, would you think that I'm Pet Coon goofy? Never say never in the WWE as both men love to look for tapouts. Is it likely? Probaly not but it certainly could happen.   

Paul Heyman could certainly be the wild card in this match and one has to assume that Happy Heyman will be involved to some degree. To what degree could determine how this first meeting of Punk and Lesnar ends. By first meeting, I hope/expect there to be another one on one wrestling match between the two.     

HUGE opportunity awaits Bray Wyatt at S'Slam vs. Kane. Curious to see how the newcomer responds under the summer lights of a major PPV. I'm thinking that he will do well. It's in his genes.

Summer Slam was always one of my favorite PPV's to broadcast back in the day. It just seemed to be timely as it relates to the time elapsed from WrestleMania. I will be comfortably and happily watching the event from the 2K Sports Suite in the Staples Center come show time.

Speaking of 2K Sports, we have big news coming from them next Saturday afternoon at AXXESS that I will partner with The King to deliver. Big news indeed regarding WWE's newest video game.

My autograph session in Los Angeles is Sunday, the day of Summer Slam, at AXXESS from 1-3 p m. 

This Saturday I'm doing a FREE appearance, thanks to Homeland Grocery stores, at the Norman Homeland on Lindsey street from 1-3 pm. FREE food, autographs and photo ops for all. Plus, great deals on all JR's products. Super prices and NO shipping charges. Come see me if you're in our area.   

Hope this Johnny Manziel fiasco is resolved to where the Heisman Trophy winner can play this year for the Texas A&M Aggies who are coached by my great friend Kevin Sumlin. If the alleged witnesses refuse to cooperate with the NCAA, the NCAA's case is toast. Players should be able to make some extra cash in legit manners such as appearing at autograph shows, etc. The rules against players making extra money is SO antiquated. Aside from that Manziel seemingly needs stronger parenting. I know how my Dad would have handled this matter and it wouldn't have made a damn bit of difference if I was 20 years old or not.   

Loved HBO's 'Hard Knocks' Tuesday night on its first episode of the season. There's got to be money in a DVD of this series with all the great content that did not make air on the one hour broadcast. By the way, the Bengals look much improved over past seasons and they were much improved last year. Former Sooner Jermaine Gresham is a big time tight end who was one of my guys while he played in Norman for OU. He's from Ardmore, Oklahoma where there is a Whataburger at exit 32 on I35.  Just saying'.

Go to WWE.com and check out the trailer for the upcoming, September 10 release of 'Legends of Mid South Wrestling' which is another in the long line of superb, WWE DVDs. Many of us got our 'degrees' from the big Cowboy and by working in Mid South.

There are like 10-12 tickets still available for my upcoming Cardiff show and about 100 for the Manchester event which is on the same night of a Manchester United vs. Chelsea football game so we have rough competition. Nonetheless we have sold more tickets to the Manchester event than any other show on the tour. London and Glasgow are sold out. if you want info on tickets, etc, please check out http://www.psievents.eventbrite.com/.     

Update to my site are coming soon. Sorry for the inconveniences in how my blogs are structured. Bear with us. Follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ.

 I never really was a big fan of Daniel Bryan but like him a lot better than John cena and I love how they involve the McMahons in the situation.
Parents can no longer "handle business" like the old days.  You can try, but it is likely the children already have a number they can call if they feel "disrespected".  Johhny Football is a dumbass in a dumbass world and I am sure this will only get better............I need some more person to person interaction between THE AMERICAN DRAGON and the Unwilling future heel John Cena to sell this match and I hope they have a better plan for how Orton will "cash in".  I also feel the WWE needs to go back to "old school ways" on getting heat and emotional investment from the crowds.  A character who goes straight at the crowd like Rude or Flair used to do. 
I'm a little disappointed that Miz is playing host at Summerslam instead of actually wrestling, but I'm hoping he finds a way to steal the show for himself.  All in all I much prefered bad-guy Miz to the more fan-friendly guy we see today.  As the bad-guy he was, well, Awesome.  He was the champion, arrogant and deservedly so, getting between Rock and Cena and saying that it was his show.  Good guy Miz just seems directionless and lost, playing a role that doesn't seem to fit him.  I want to see the old Miz back.
The Parenting thing is why i refuse to live in todays world on a social/society level, kids can be so rude. Kids don't talk to parents, read books or get inspired & learn from the elder folk. the Manchester lot may be a bit loud as they go to the pub to celebrate or drown their sorrows in a pint or more of something....if they're not already watching the game in the pub. Football is most fans religion, saying the wrong thing or it's just a game" may lead to unwanted confrontation fuelled by alcohol especially that you're not from here. pathetic, i know but that's how some fans are in the uk. Just tread carefully......
