WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.
Donald Trump’s WWE Hall of Fame Induction & A Physical HOF Building: “Still amazes me that many seemingly sane people can’t differentiate from being inducted into the WWE HOF as a wrestler, etc over the honorary, celeb status. I have written about this in the past and am getting tired of responding to many knuckleheads on Twitter @JRsBBQ on the topic.”
“I will say that WWE definitely NEEDS a building to house the HOF combined with a WWE Museum and I feel that will happen in the future. So much goes into a facility such as this as it is a MAJOR undertaking as one can imagine. The location is vital, an adequate building is a must, the right staff and curator can influence success or failure, acquiring items for display are crucial and these are just some of the issues. I would bet my last black hat that it happens sooner than later but only when all the moving parts have been addressed. Until then many will continue to bitch about who’s in the WWE HOF and why their favorite isn’t….and so it goes.”
Running into Mick Foley: It was good seeing Mick Foley in OKC and we chatted briefly about his big night on April 6 in the sold out Madison Square Garden where he will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Mick is obviously very excited and I’m sure that he will have an entertaining acceptance speech. Mrs Foley’s baby boy is certainly a deserving recipient.
Thoughts on Mark Henry: Watched a Mark Henry TV match Tuesday night and the big Texan and World’s Strongest Man continues to impress. Few men in WWE actually get as focused and into their TV persona as much as Henry does prior to a match. Not the time to chat.
John Cena vs. CM Punk on Raw: “Two points on this tremendous, main event, 1. Cena added some new wrinkles to his game that might silence some of his narrow minded critics for a few days and 2. Punk was working with the flu and hampered by jet lag from a long flight to Dallas from Istanbul on the last day of a grueling, three day international tour. I watched the match live on TV and it is the first match in a long time that I’ve gone back and watched again on DVR.”
