Jim Ross wrote on his website that Gerald Brisco's heart surgery has been postponed again. "He was mentally ready to undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a heart defect but the surgery has been postponed for the second time," Ross explained. "Jerry's heart surgeon had an emergency surgery to perform on Thursday, his surgery day, and now Jerry is re-scheduled for July 9. I told Jerry that the good news is that his heart condition is such that the WWE Hall of Famer can safely wait until next Thursday while the other individual who bumped Jerry was in an apparent life threatening situation. Jerry had prepared himself mentally for his heart surgery and now must patiently wait, if that's possible, for next Thursday's procedure. I think Jerry being so ready for the surgery is a good sign that he's ready to solve his issue now and without the immense apprehension that can accompany an ordeal such as this."
As noted on Friday here on the website, Joey Styles has been banned from espousing extreme political rants on his Twitter. Even though they got him over with Vince McMahon there was a lot of heat on him from some executives who were worried about upsetting advertisers.
Former WWE official Dave Hebner was on the Bubba radio show in Tampa on Monday. Apparently he now works in a bowling alley in Richmond, VA. He said in his best year he made $218,000 while working for WWE. He put over Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and Triple H but buried Ultimate Warrior saying he was the dumbest guy he ever came across in wrestling. Well, of course he would say that. Bubba brought up how WWE fired the Hebner's a few years ago over the merchandising scam, but Dave didn't have much to say about it.
