Jim Ross has updated the blog section on his official website, JRsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
-- More regarding Lance Cade: "First of all let's clear something up....I am not having a "war of words" with Lance Cade as a wrestling website reported in their more often than not knee jerk fashion. Understand this, I have NO issues with Lance and have expressed that time and again. He is a talented kid trained by one of my favorite people in the world, Shawn Michaels. Lance knows that if I can ever help him down the road that I will. He made a mistake. We have all made them. At my best calculation, he has been exiled from the WWE far less than me. Lance knows how to reach me if he has an issue and our relationship is healthy as far as I am concerned. When Lance was released, many websites gave false and sensationalist reports of why. I clarified the matter as best I knew it. Bottom line is that Lance Cade is a fine young man who has a great deal of talent. I have been steadfast in his corner since he came aboard the WWE, when everyone wasn't by the way, and I will remain so. I hope that Cade returns to the WWE some day to realize his potential. For those that want to make this matter more than it is, go ahead but you are making yourself look bad and creating a story where there is none."
Note from Ryan Clark: I do admit that calling it a 'War of Words' in the title of the post the other day was a little over the top and I apologize to Jim for that. I also know that Lance was not all that happy with the story 'leaking' to the 'net.
-- Ross on the chances of Trish Stratus appearing on tommorrow night's Raw in Toronto: "I would say my chances of seeing one of my all time favorite hires, Trish Stratus, in TO is better than 50/50 but that doesn't necessarily mean she will appear on TV. If she does, it likely will be on Raw and it would seem that if she is available that a cameo by the multiple time, former champion would be a good thing. However, understand that I have no idea what is in store for the TV shows on Monday and that me visiting with Trish is largely my wishful thinking. Is that so wrong??"
-- Ross on Batista likely missing tomorrow night's Raw: "After being punted in the head ala Ray Guy (Google it, kids), I would suggest that it is doubtful that Batista will be able to be a part of Monday Night Raw this week but that's an assumption and we all know what happens when one assumes."
-- Ross on Bret "The Hitman" Hart: "I got a great message from Bret 'Hitman' Hart a few hours ago and he said he was getting better every day after having knee replacement surgery. I challenged Bret to a foot race while he is healing but he wants to "race me around the block" once he is better. At that point I think the foot race offer will be off the table. I would love to take a camera crew to Bret's place in Hawaii and sit with Bret and do the ultimate DVD interview complete with his thoughts on many of his favorite matches that he participated in and that he observed. Playing word association with Bret on virtually dozens of wrestling's biggest names would be fun." You can read the blog in its entirety at the following link.
