Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Tyson Kidd's surgery: "Tyson Kidd, one of the potentially brightest young stars in WWE, underwent knee surgery Thursday to repair multiple injuries and will be out until sometime late in 2013. I am very high on Kidd's in ring work and have seen him have some tremendous outings while performing at NXT. Hopefully when Tyson is healthy he will look at his return as a fresh start as, hopefully, will all involved in the process. If you've heard my commentary during Kidd's NXT bouts you already know what I think of this young man's potential."
Calling The Royal Rumble match: "I do know that the Rumble match is arguably the most challenging bout of the year for a broadcaster to call as the story changes every time a new entrant is announced and whenever there is an elimination. Then once all the Rumble entrants have ended another phase of the contest commences where the last man standing in the ring earns himself a significant payday because of nabbing a WrestleMania main event slot.
"I assume that @MichaelCole @JCLayfield and @Jerry Lawler will handle the commentary in Phoenix for the PPV event and having three at the announce table might actually be a plus when calling the Rumble match itself.
Superstar Billy Graham: "Prayers to Superstar Billy Graham as he is very ill or so reports say. For those wishing to reach out to Superstar he is on Facebook as I understand it."
