Jim Ross posted a new blog on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.
Jerry Lawler wrestling again: “I do know that if King can wrestle that he will. Jerry is a wrestler first and an announcer second as being a wrestler is what he’s done for 40+ years and I seriously doubt that he’s ready to hang up his boots. Every indy promoter will be frothing at the mouth to book King even more now than before. I’d suggest to all that slow, deliberate steps be taken.
Working with JBL and Michael Cole on RAW: “I know is that it took two of us to replace @Jerry Lawler on RAW Monday. Working with @JCLayfield, who’s a funny SOB, and @MichaelCole who has become the voice of WWE and had his most defining moment in Montreal with the face of death looking him right in the eyes, was a blast for me.”
Who will fill in for Lawler this Monday: “I’m not sure who will sit in for King next week with Michael Cole. It’s a great opportunity for WWE to utilize some names from the past and/or to place some prospective new talent at the announce table.
“Whoever assists Cole will be in good hands as no one preps as thoroughly as does Michael and hopefully whoever is tabbed will follow Cole’s lead and be thoroughly prepared to work a long, live three hour entertainment program. I’d suggest that who is selected greatly reduce their liquid in take by mid afternoon as sitting in a confined spot for three hours can be, well, anxious. :)”
