Source: JR's BBQWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with his latest blog. Here are some highlights:
The Hornswoggle - Vince McMahon segment on RAW: "'Jim Ross' Trending on Twitter during Raw was a surprise. The Hornswoggle/Mr. McMahon skit impersonating yours truly must have struck a nerve with some folks. The Boss and 'Swoggle made for a comedic pair. Sell 'da Sauce!"
Three hour RAWs: "Three hour TV shows are daunting and must be approached with extensive, long term planning and preparation. I enjoyed many elements of Monday Night Raw but watching ANY TV show for three hours isn't easy for me.
"Hopefully, three hour Monday Night Raw's will provide more multiple segment wrestling matches and not more talk. Yep, old school guy here...I like the wrestling, drama, athleticism, and personal issues better than most talk.
"Don't get me wrong, a focused, passionate, entertaining in ring promo that engages the live audience and takes us fans on a ride and closer to the talent's intended destination is still money. Unfortunately, an adlibbed, spontaneous promo is becoming a lost art."
Vader's return: "Loved the return of Vader on Raw. Leon White aka Vader has lost a bunch of weight after getting north or the 400 pound mark and looked to be 330ish the last time that I saw him which was down in Tampa a few weeks ago. Vader's son is 'Jake Carter' who is one half of the Florida Tag Team Champions along with Cory Graves.
"For those asking I have no idea if Vader's appearance is a one off or if he will be back occasionally. I can't see him in full time but, again, I don't know."
JR products out of stock on WWE.com: "This just in....several items of JR's products are currently out of stock at WWEShop due to the heavy increase in sales/orders. Fresh inventory is in route and it will be business as usual in a mere matter of days. Order yours at wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss. I apologize for any inconvenience as there is no excuse for running out of inventory this time of the year, or anytime for that matter, including it being Father's Day upcoming."
Much more is contained in JR's latest blog, including his thoughts on the progression of AJ & Dolph Ziggler, if he'll attend the 1000th episode of RAW and much more.
