Jim Ross Blogs: RAW Future, Next TV Role, & More
On Monday's Raw: "The Mexico City Raw was a unique experience and it is always nice being a part of WWE history as it was the first Raw TV from Mexico. Our segment featuring the tag match between Cole/ADR vs. Cena/JR seemingly did great in the all important TV ratings. Thanks for tuning in. In a perfect world, that would be my LAST foray into the ring as an active competitor/participant. Think a cow on ice wearing bowling shoes."
On his immediate WWE future: "As I write this on Friday I have no plans to be traveling to Texas this weekend for WWE events including San Antonio and Austin. Yes, thinks could change but not likely."
On this week's Legends Roundtable taping: "Wednesday night was a blast. Newcomers Roddy Piper and DDP, Diamond Dallas Page, added some new, sizzle to the production along with Michael Hayes, Mean Gene Okerlund and yours truly. In January the first show about Wrestling Renegades will air on WWE On Demand. We talk about many men who were strong, individual personalities including Stan Hansen, Bruiser Brody, Abdullah the Butcher, Piper, Steve Austin, Brian Pillman, the Freebirds, and so many, many more. Great stories and spirited debate. The second show is about Celebrities in Wrestling going all the way back to former heavyweight boxing champions Jack Johnson, Joe Louis, Jack Dempsey, Rocky Marciano, Ali, Tyson and others. Plus we discussed Lawrence Taylor wrestling, and doing extremely well under the circumstances, at WM11, and the infamous David Arquette fiasco in WCW which sparked some colorful debate. Pete Rose made the list as did so many others. These are the most enjoyable productions, personally, for me in today's WWE environment and I think that productions such as this will be assets to the future, WWE Network which is apparently going to debut in 2012 around WM28."
On his next TV role: "I'm going to do a hog hunt with HBK for his outdoor TV show and we hope to tape what should be an interesting experience in December.
On Jerry Brisco: "My dear friend Jerry Brisco had a mild stroke on Wednesday just before he was to fly to Mexico to attend the Pan American games to scout amateur wrestlers for WWE. Luckily Jerry's son Wes was driving his Dad to the Tampa Airport but instead took the WWE HOFer to the hospital after Jerry described how he was feeling. More tests are being run and other specialists opinions will be acquired to attempt to discover why the younger brother of the great, Jack Brisco is having these serious issues. I assure you that Jerry Brisco is a fighter and when I talked to him this week nothing was ever more evident. Many fans will never know how vital Jerry Brisco was to the WWE Talent Relations department over the years particularly when we were signing some of WWE's future, biggest, all time stars and looking far and wide for world class athletes to comprise the WWE roster."
