WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on the Hardy Boyz returning to WWE, The Undertaker retiring, and his autobiography. Here are the highlights.
On the Hardy Boyz returning to WWE:
Interesting speculation online that the Hardy Boys might be back on the WWE radar. I have no idea if this is true or not but I don’t think it is a bad idea if they were utilized much like the Dudley’s have been lately. Jeff and Matt had a spectacular tag team run in WWE while Jeff was close to becoming a big time, singles star, as well. Jeff’s ladder match with Undertaker is still one of my most vivid broadcasting memories. The Hardy’s and the Dudley’s in a TLC match at Wrestlemania Texas would certainly be attractive to Attitude Era fans who are looking for a reason to reconnect with the brand and sample the WWE Network.
On The Undertaker retiring:
Getting lots of questions as to why I don’t think that the Undertaker is ready to hang up his boots. It’s more of a gut feeling than any thing else plus some feedback from those closer to the matter than am I. If Taker is healthy, and he appears to be, and not in need of any more surgeries at this time then he seems like he could pull of a Lesnar-like schedule and make special appearances but at the same time keep his persona fresh, his body healthy and remain in the ‘special attraction’ realm. Like an other husband and father, one has to earn a living to fulfill one’s obligations and to provide for family so why not do what one’s done so well if it can be done? This is mere speculation but it’s my take on the matter and time will tell what the verdict will be. Undertaker on major cards in specific markets is good for WWE business and what’s good for WWE business is good for all talents.
On his autobiography:
We have shined up three chapters of my autobiography and they are now being shopped to various publishers. We remain optimistic that we will release the book in 2016 at some point. I’m pleased with what we’ve done so far and that hasn’t always been the case. I’m too critical of my own story but I want it to be a great read. Not good…but great.
