WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog on his website and here are the highlights:
On Linda McMahon:
“Excited for Linda McMahon for being named head of the Small Business Administration by President elect Donald Trump. While some took this appointment as a reason to again bombard the topic on social media with negativity, I can only say that in my 21+ years in WWE that Linda was always professional, accommodating and an effective leader with the company. I never had a bad experience with her whatsoever. I shared that experience and caught some grief over it from those less informed. This wasn’t an experience that I read about online or on some wrestling website but instead a personal experience that actually occurred to me and my family.
My wife Jan is arguably the biggest LEM supporter that I know as they bonded during my tenure in WWE and that respect still remains to this day. I choose to not to get overly political in any thing that I do, I don’t trust career politicians, but I will say that is no matter your choice of politics one should give those in question a fair chance to see what they can accomplish. Is that too much too ask? For some, indeed it is.”
On NJPW on AXS TV:
“Big news coming from AXSTV next week on exciting, new developments with the NJPW Friday night TV show specifically regarding Wrestle Kingdom in 2017.”
On John Cena’s acting career:
“It seems that John Cena is traveling much the same road that Dwayne Johnson has taken in his post WWE life which I applaud. Just like @TheRock, @JohnCena is and always will be a WWE guy who may never wrestle a full time schedule again, likely not IMO, but will always be loyal to the company that helped launch his amazing career.
I know of no wrestler with reasonable sanity that is that would not trade the bumping and the road schedule, etc for the life of a TV or movie personality. Would you? I didn’t think so.”
