Source: JR's BBQJim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
CM Punk leaving WWE:
I fully understand that Punk is burned out and frustrated but I personally and perhaps selfishly wish that he would perform and steal the show at WM30 before taking his leave and recharging his batteries. That's just the fan in me talking.
Brock Lesnar potentially returning to the UFC:
I can see why Brock Lesnar would love to fight in the UFC again because he's a beast who feels he's left unfinished business behind and he's healthy.... finally. I say the former NCAA, WWE, and UFC champion has nothing to prove by returning to the Octagon as he's got a great gig in WWE working part time for what I'd think is substantial cash....and I'm a HUGE, UFC fan.
Lesnar sells PPV's when he's hot and it's up to WWE to get Lesnar hot between now and April 6.
I could easily see Lesnar challenging The Undertaker and the STREAK for WM31 and letting that matter build for a year. Lesnar gets reborn as a beast and provides the most intense threat to the STREAK that, arguably, anyone has ever presented. Just a thought....
His first podcast guest:
Steve Austin will be my first @PodcastOne guest when my new show debuts in a couple of weeks. I'm meeting Monday with the radio station that is going to handle our production and they are all set up to take calls of which I hope is a major part of our new podcast. More info to come.
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on Alistair Overeem calling out Lesnar, today's Super Bowl, another possibly Hall of Fame induction and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
