Jim Ross Blogs: 'Old School' RAW, Flair Vs. HBK, More
On the legends scheduled for Old School Raw: "Nice opening salvo of WWE Legends for the three hour, November 15 Raw in Hershey, Pa. Several WWE HOF'er including Dusty Rhodes, Roddy Piper, Sgt Slaughter, Iron Sheik, Jimmy Snuka along with my old, Mid South pal Hacksaw Jim Duggan. I have no idea how these talents will be utilized but it will be fun to watch them on the tube and I would bet a new, bigger, resealable bag of some of the world's greatest, J.R.'s Beef Jerky that many of them will be funnier than Pee Wee Herman."
On Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels: "Who was better in their prime, HBK or Ric Flair? How could answering either be incorrect? Who is the greatest of all time in the history of the business? I get asked that question weekly and BTW I don't know the answer. People have different criteria as to what determines who is better than the rest. Is is tickets sold, longevity, name identity, legit athletic skill, showmanship, or a dozen other criteria than could be viably utilized in determining 'the best ever?' I will say that both Ric and Shawn would definitely be in my short list of all time greats and if I put together a dream roster of talent they both would be on it without question. Bottom line there is no conclusive, correct answer to the question, who is the best ever?"
