Jim Ross has a new blog entry up at JRSBARBQ.com. Here are the highlights…
On Triple H’s Work on RAW: The HHH highlights brought back some great memories for me including The Game’s 2X3 fall bout with @steveaustinBSR in Vegas on PPV which was the night after I called an XFL game in the rain in Chicago. I was at the right place at the right time to see and broadcast HHH’s career truly evolve in WWE and his bouts with such men as HBK and Undertaker are some of my all time favorites.HHH’s promo certainly left the door open as to his in ring future. I’m thinking that he won’t be able to walk away just yet from competing but time will tell.
On The Closing Segment of RAW: The last segment of Raw inside the cage was a superb way to end the three hour broadcast as it paid off an issue, Punk vs. Lawler, and put the WWE Champion back with his #1 contender, John Cena, who Punk will face in the main event at Night of Champions PPV. Punk is at the top of his game while King is undoubtedly one of the best ever inside the ropes. I can assure you that Jerry had more fun, even in a losing, painful effort, in the ring Monday night than he would broadcasting ten Raws. Punk getting several staples in his head after contacting the steel cage is not exactly the way I would want to start a multi hour flight to Australia.
On Young Talent: Young talents have to realize that they HAVE to improve or they will be bypassed by someone who wants it a little bit more. One thing is for sure, young wrestlers cannot make it to the Promised Land simply by investing in their careers while they are at work either training or at a live event. It’s a full time investment of their time including daily DVD study. The process is going to continue to get more challenging to not only get a contract but to ‘make it.’ Competition is good for everyone.
On Todd Grisham & The Coach: Really proud of @GrishamESPN and @TheCoachESPN for their tag team effort hosting SportsCenter on ESPN. Two great guys and who have both found their true calling. Both will evolve into big stars for their network much sooner than later. Todd even gave JR’s BBQ a shout out I’m told Tuesday night. Cool.
