JR on Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman:
“It’s amazing the feedback that I have received on Curtis Axel since he aligned himself with Paul Heyman last Monday night on Raw. The feedback as ran the gambit of skepticism, cynicism, to outright joy. All I know is that the young man has been working very hard, he steered the course and never gave up on his dream to become a star in WWE just as his father, Mr. Perfect, did years ago. Old school fans also remember that Larry ‘The Ax’ Hennig was a huge star in the AWA for years as well. I know this…Curtis Axel will do all that he can to elevate to the next level and at the end of the day that’s all a talent can do. Even if that means working through creative plans that some fans don’t like… I suggest giving this new, paring of Axel & Heyman a chance before all the fortune tellers and wrestling savants immerse us with what’s going to happen in the future.”
Being On Steve Austin Show:
I haven't been able to listen to my appearance on the latest Steve Austin Podcast but I've gotten a great deal of positive feedback on it. Part two airs this Tuesday and @steveaustinBSR will have all the details as the podcasts can be found at ITunes. Steve is a natural in this forum.
His input on UFC 160:
Really enjoyed UFC160 Saturday night on PPV. Great lineup of fights that looked good on paper and then delivered inside the Octagon from start to finish. Trust me, sometimes booking can look great on paper and then proceed to soil the sheets, as I can personally attest. This was a defining PPV in many ways for several fighters who stepped up to earn more relevance and put themselves "in the hunt" than they were before entering the Octagon last night. The international flavor of the UFC audience in Vegas was impressive as were a few, new production elements. Nice, organic way to get Ronda Rousey on the show in the "Vegas" promo. Amazed that Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg stood so tall after an approximate five hour broadcast where the most important things that they do all day came at the very end of their day. Bravo to both.
I'd like to see an occasional pre fight interview on the UFC PPV's and still feel that having a voiceover talent handle the video packages gives Goldberg a break and keeps him more special. There might even be a former fighter whose voice could be utilized for the read.
