JR Blog: CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam, a WWE-TNA Partnership?, More

- WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has a new blog entry on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:

WWE title match at SummerSlam: Thinking that @JohnCena vs. @WWEDanielBryan at Summer Slam could resemble a Cena vs. @ShawnMichaels or @Real KurtAngle match vs. anything that we've seen from the WWE Champion in recent years. Bryan's pace and skill set will sternly challenge Cena on a night where we could readily see the @WWE Title changing hands in Los Angeles. Bryan's speed would seem to be problematic for Cena....or anyone.

Returning to weekly broadcasting: No...I never expect to go back on the road on a weekly basis to broadcast WWE television. I'd love to return for the occasional cameo if WWE needed my services at the announce table.

If he watches TNA: Yes...I watch TNA periodically as I have many friends who work there and, no, I don't have any 'solutions' to their alleged woes that I care to share. I do hope TNA all the success in the world.

Possibilities of a WWE/TNA Partnership: No...there will NEVER be a WWE/TNA partnership unless WWE owned TNA and that's highly unlikely to ever occur. Please don't start that rumor but some brain surgeons will. WWE has zero to gain in said 'partnership.'

CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam: Thinking that the pending @CMPunk vs. @BrockLesnar match at Summer Slam will be really good. Very Physical. Straight forward. Both men have healthy egos which is an essential part of being a major star in any endeavor especially in sports and entertainment. 'Controlled' egos are often hidden within the term 'self confidence.' Nonetheless, it will be intriguing to see Punk's strategy to counter Lesnar's obvious size and strength advantage plus Brock's athletic skill set. One can't win on heart alone or compel PPV buyers to invest simply on the"I won't quit" sort of attitude. That obviously helps but fans need to know that the underdog (Punk) has a 'plan' and a legit chance to 'overcome.' All that aside, both Lesnar and Punk will want to steal the show at Summer Slam in a big time way and @HeymanHustle will foster that mindset. There are many, unique elements at play in this main event level bout.
