Jim Ross Blogs: WWE’s Tour, Lesnar/RAW Segment, Y2J/Punk


Jim Ross recently posted his latest blog at JRSBARBQ.com. Check out the highlights:

On the CAC event: “Gold Coast hotel was once again the site of the Cauliflower Alley Club annual gathering. CAC is an amazing organization that does a great deal of charitable work within the business and was formed in 1965. Steve Austin received the group’s highest award named after the founder of the organization, Iron Mike Mazurki, a former wrestler and successful actor. I was fortunate enough to be asked by Steve to induct him. He had a great speech and offered sage advice to many of the young wrestlers who were in attendance. Loved hearing Ricky Steamboat’s stories of breaking into the biz in AWA, personal memories of Lou Thesz, working in Mid Atlantic Wrestling, his rivalry w/ Ric Flair, and so much more. Sgt Slaughter introduced the Dragon who received the Lou Thesz Award. ”

On the WWE international tour: “Really proud of the WWE Supertars for putting together an amazing string of outstanding events on the current International tour. Can’t wait to get back to Tampa next week to work with the young men and women in FCW. It never fails to be a rewarding experience.”

On the Brock Lesnar segment on Raw: “Thought the Brock Lesnar piece on RAW was excellent. I’m very anxious to see how he competes vs John Cena at the Extreme Rules PPV. Fighting in the Octagon for UFC is a much different animal than performing in a WWE ring. Lesnar is a gifted athlete and will likely shock us all with how well he does against Cena. This one is too close for me to call.”

On Jericho vs. Punk at Extreme Rules: “Count on CM Punk and Chris Jericho being innovative and physical. Strong personal issue to be settled in Punk’s hometown. Live crowd will be tremendous.”
