Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. In the blog, JR discussed his upcoming "Evening with JR" shows that will take place on August 24th at the Hilton Hotel Cardiff in Cardiff, August 25th in London and August 26th in Manchester. Tickets went on sale today at psievents.eventbrite.com.

Here are some highlights from his latest blog:

CM Punk's return: "Good to see that @CMPunk has been able to take some time off and decompress before he returns to the grind of the road in his hometown of Chicago at Payback. Going on nothing but my own gut instincts, I'd suggest that we fans don't see Punk until the night of the PPV in Chicago. He's going to receive a massive ovation from the always rabid All State Arena crowd and will arguably be the most popular wrestler in the arena that night. I might be wrong but it seems as if the fans enjoy cheering Punk more than they do jeering him."

His upcoming UK tour: "I will take the live audience on a journey that starts when I became a wrestling fan growing up as an only child in Westville, Oklahoma through the early days of my career in the territories, the corporate years in the wrestling business, overcoming a few hurdles along the way and up until the present day. These events will also feature a healthy, Q&A session and will conclude with a VIP, personal meet and greet, photo and autograph session.

"If our concept works in the UK we hope to schedule more dates there and there's been talk of doing a tour in Australia, where I've never traveled, and in North America as well. Time will tell but It's something that has me excited as I feel the presentation has potential. "

Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on Fandango, the new Mid South DVD, NXT wrestlers being called up and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
