WWE News: Jim Ross impressed with The New Day's record tag team title reign storyline
Good Ol' JR was quite pleased with the blockbuster main event on Raw this week.
The New Day were successful in eclipsing Demolition’s record for the longest tag team title reign in WWE history, on the latest episode of Raw. Even though the path was difficult, as they put their titles on the line twice on the night in two separate triple-threat matches, the trio still managed to come out on top.
In his recent blog on Jrsbarbq.com, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross gave his opinion on the events that transpired around the Raw Tag Team Champions this Monday night. Ross appreciated the way the record was built up on D-day and how it was fit into the 3-hour show. Here’s wrote the legendary commentator on his blog:
“Nice story arc on RAW Monday night regarding the New Day and their Tag Team Titles. Whether one is a fan of the storyline or not, the basic writing and structure over a gruelling three-hour broadcast odyssey is impressive.”
Giving his opinion on the champions, Jim Ross said that although he likes intense physical action in the ring as opposed to comedy, he doesn’t mind the touch of humour that comes with The New Day around.
“For me, I have my moments regarding this matter but enjoy it more when I feel that there is aggression and physicality taking center stage rather than comedy even though I like a sprinkling of comedy in the presentation of New Day.”
Speaking about the main event which saw Big E and Xavier Woods take on ‘best friends’ Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho and the team of Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, Ross reckoned that it was a good one and praised all participants, particularly Chris Jericho.
However, he did feel that there could have been little more urgency as it was the last Raw before Roadblock: End of the Line.
“Nice RAW main event as it's challenging to spread the wealth while being "opportunistically greedy' in a match featuring 6 people. Chris Jericho's leadership was obvious. Good job by all. I could have used a bit more of a sense of urgency as it relates to RAW being the go home show for Sunday's Roadblock event on the WWE Network.”
