Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Talent speaking up:
If any wrestling company fosters a backstage environment that does not encourage their talents to speak up and get more involved in their careers from a presentation and creative standpoint, that company is asking for hard times. In ring participants like to perform and to create or they wouldn't be in the biz. If one is a performer then they likely have an above average abundance of creativity. Any show business entity that stifles creativity from their performers is myopic.
Talents cannot be afraid to speak up but unfortunately because of the shrinking number of places a talent can work and earn a decent living the "don't rock the boat" philosophy seems to permeate the wrestling business.
That's not healthy for anyone involved.
His first podcast with Steve Austin:
I had a great audio session this week with @steveaustinBSR for the Ross Report podcast that will be debuting THIS Wednesday on Podcastone.com and ITunes and it's always FREE. A new podcast will drop every Wednesday. Austin talks about some unique, WrestleMania topics, his booking thoughts on Daniel Bryan and what Bryan needs to address to get over even more, the CM Punk saga, thoughts on NOT wrestling a program with @HulkHogan, @Goldberg and @BrockLesnar, where the original Smoking Skull Title Belt is today, along with much more including his thoughts on Steve attending WM30.
Much more is contained in Ross' latest blog, including his thoughts on Jim Cornette, not being bitter about leaving WWE, Derek Jeter retiring and much more. You can check out the full entry by clicking here.
Also, tickets for the "An Evening with Jim Ross" shows in New York City on March 1st and New Orleans on April 3rd are available via ticketmaster.com, the Gramercy Theater box office in New York City, and the House of Blues box office in Orleans.
