Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
"The upcoming WWE Draft and band separation/talent redistribution is drawing near and, as I have predicted, this exercise, of which I am optimistic about, will be likely be heavily second guessed by many hard core pro wrestling fans just because it is seemingly many fan's favorite pro wrestling experience these days.
"I jest, somewhat, but you get the point. WWE will likely be 'damned if they do' and 'damned if they don't' regarding this major development that could potentially be one of the most dynamic developments in WWE in years. I think the brand separation jury will be out until Orlando in April and I'm patient enough to give it that long before I pull my my soap box and 'judge' it."
Randy Orton's appearance at Battleground:
"I can only assume that Randy Orton will be involved in some level of physicality at Battleground in the Jericho Highlight Reel but that's merely speculation. Why bring The Viper back to only talk Lesnar and Summer Slam without giving the audience something memorable to take with them?"
