CM Punk Denied Entry Into Madison Square Garden, JR Blog: Steve Austin’s Final Match, Kane’s Promo from RAW and More

December 28, 2011   ·   0 Comments

– WWE Champion CM Punk was denied entry into Madison Square Garden today for the RAW live event. The security guard didn’t believe Punk was an actual WWE Superstar and another guard had to step in and let Punk into the building.

Punk wrote on Twitter:

“Sellout the Horizon on a Monday, refused entry to the Garden on Tuesday. My life is awesome.”

“Some serious Larry David shit.”

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog on www.jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:

– Kane’s end of Raw promo was thought provoking and can be interrupted in a variety of ways. Unique way to end the broadcast and with the announcers laying out and not leading the audience it allowed fans to come to their own conclusions….at least for this week.

– I casually mentioned on Twitter about a possible Steve Austin one more match scenario. I did this to answer a question and as a follow up to what Steve himself said in a recent interview. It would have to be the right guy at the right place and right time according to the Texas Rattlesnake. My suggestion was that the right time ‘might’ be at Wrestlemania in 2013. Nonetheless nothing is guaranteed and the decision is up to Steve and not any one else. However, doing it anywhere but Wrestlemania doesn’t make sense to me.

– While I appreciate everyone’s support of my work at ringside, it’s shocking to think that many folks believe that I can just walk back to ringside and resume my old role as simply as that. My role/style as a broadcaster changed many times throughout my career starting in the 70’s through the 2000’s. The product changed so my presentation had to change as well. The days of broadcasters doing a hold by hold version of play by play is seemingly out of touch in today’s marketplace. I’m not saying that I will never be back at a broadcast table but it isn’t something for which I am counting down the days. This isn’t a complaint by the way and being able to do other things to contribute to WWE’s on going success is rewarding to me at this stage of the game. I had my day at ringside and now it’s time to do other projects that positively affect the brand.

– The December 23rd episode of WWE SmackDown scored a 1.95 cable rating with 2.74 million viewers.

– The ratings from last night’s RAW in Chicago won’t be released until Wednesday.

– Shawn Michaels did a Q&A on Twitter today and said he misses nothing about being a regular part of the wrestling business. Shawn added that if he missed it, he would go back.

A fan asked Shawn if he would return to WWE in the future in a non-wrestling capacity and Shawn replied, “perhaps someday.”
