Jim Ross updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with some behind-the-scenes information about Steve Austin's upcoming DVD, his upcoming Lou Thesz Award in Iowa this Saturday night, the possible end of the Mr. McMahon character and more...
New Austin DVD: "Yes, a new Steve Austin DVD is being produced for release prior to the holidays later this year. Filming at Steve's Broken Skull Ranch in South Texas begins this Monday. I was interviewed by a producer for approximately 3 hours on the day that I conducted the HBK-Hitman sit down interview in Stamford and expect that will be the extent of my involvement in the Stone Cold DVD. I did send Steve an email with a litany of content suggestions but I have no idea what the final, final edit will remotely resemble."
Ross Being Honored This Weekend: "We're looking forward to traveling to Waterloo, Iowa this weekend to participate in the Annual Dan Gable Museum and Wrestling Hall of Fame festivities. I'll be receiving the Lou Thesz Award Saturday night and will be introduced by my old friend Jerry Brisco. Mick Foley is the master of ceremony for the event of which we are honored and humbled with which to be involved. Hope to see some of you that follow us here or on Twitter @JRsBBQ in Iowa."
The End of Mr. McMahon: "Mr. McMahon being 'relieved of his post' as Chairman of WWE was a major surprise to me and one that I never saw coming. It certainly sets up numerous, new, storyline opportunities which will hopefully be capitalized upon in the near and long term future. What changes will be made under HHH's watch, if any, and how will those assumed changes affect the presentation of WWE's top TV priority? As a fan and after working with and for Mr. McMahon for many years, I simply can't see the sports entertainment visionary "going quietly into the night." That's TBD I assume and will be one of the catalysts that encourage fans to tune into Raw Monday night. "
