Jim Ross has written his latest blog on JRsBARBQQ.com. On Adamle being named Raw's General Manager: "The naming of Adamle as Raws GM was universally considered a shocker by the Raw superstars. I did not see this one coming and it will be most interesting to see how the former NFL running back and sports broadcaster settles into his new, high profile. Some wrestlers were especially vocal regarding Adamle's announcement which was kept as a well concealed secret." On Michael Cole returning to Raw: "On other side notes regarding announcing, it is expected that a banged up Michael Cole will return to his Raw post next Monday in Knoxville."
Brooke Hogan has updated her MySpace blog and she is not happy with the media for reporting that she skipped Nick Hogan's 18th birthday party in jail earlier this week. "Here's how stupid and inaccurate the media can be..." Brooke writes. "They must have thought I didn't show cause they didn't see me. Uh...there's such thing as a back door, you jerks. "In conclusion...That goes to show you that you can't believe anything you watch on TV or read in magazines. Cause people will make up BS without even knowing the facts. Hey Media! Why don't you gather facts, check them, and then give the public the truth? That might work. Oh no...I forgot. You make too much money telling lies."
