Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Backstage buzz for the John Cena - CM Punk match on RAW: "One thing that was buzzing back stage in OKC was the amazing match that closed the Raw broadcast Monday night in Dallas between John Cena and CM Punk. Two points on this tremendous, main event, 1. Cena added some new wrinkles to his game that might silence some of his narrow minded critics for a few days and 2. Punk was working with the flu and hampered by jet lag from a long flight to Dallas from Istanbul on the last day of a grueling, three day international tour. I watched the match live on TV and it is the first match in a long time that I've gone back and watched again on DVR."
JBL's absence this week: "@MichaelCole, @JerryLawler joined @WWEJoshMathews on commentary for SD so it seems it takes three men to replace the gregarious @JCLayfield who is off mountain climbing for a great cause and will be away for a few weeks. Lawler and Cole also call the action for Wednesday night's Main Event on the ION Network. Jerry is a true team player working OT this week including supporting WWE sponsors like my favorite,Sonic Drive In, and Just for Men products."
Seeing Mick Foley at last night's SmackDown taping: "It was good seeing Mick Foley in OKC and we chatted briefly about his big night on April 6 in the sold out Madison Square Garden where he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Mick is obviously very excited and I'm sure that he will have an entertaining acceptance speech. Mrs Foley's baby boy is certainly a deserving recipient."
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on next week's old school RAW, appearing on SmackDown, Mark Henry impressing him, WWE needing a physical Hall of Fame building, a TV show he'll be appearing on tonight and much more.
