JR Comments On Sandman, HBK, Ric Flair, More

Jim Ross has updated his blog where he commented on the release of Sandman, the lack of "Stables" in wrestling, HBK and Ric Flair's current status. The full blog could be found at JR's website at www.jrsbarbq.com. Below are some highlights from his entry:


- "I never got to know Sandman really well but had a few conversations with him and always enjoyed shooting the breeze with the ECW Original. I am sorry that Sandman is no longer in the WWE but those things happen for a reason and not just – "for the hell of it. Sandman worked hard and many fans seemed to like his unorthodox style. Who's to say The Sandman won't be back in the WWE some day??"

- "The lack of "stables" or "factions" is a by product of the overall lack of depth that currently exists within the business. This lack of quality depth is a serious issue that needs to be rectified ASAP. I know it is an issue many are aware and working on solutions. I do think that some veteran talent could be better utilized until younger stars take hold."


- "HBK is doing amazing well with his physical recovery and I expect to see him back before the end of this calendar year, perhaps even by Survivor Series if we are all fortunate. I sure miss HBK's skills and talent on Raw."

- "Ric Flair has not walked away from the WWE and if I were forced to make a friendly wager I would expect we will see Ric again much sooner than later. At least, that is my hope."
