J.R. Blog – Are WWE Stars Jealous Of The Rock?, Jeff Hardy Returning To WWE

Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on his official website. Highlights are as follows:

Are some WWE Superstars jealous of The Rock’s return to WWE and headlining WrestleMania XXVIII?: “Probably, but I’ve not spoken directly to any that express that sentiment however jealousy isn’t anything new in the genre or in any locker room. For one to think that it isn’t is being naive. @TheRock returning to WWE is about BUSINESS and the bigger the pie the bigger the slice for everyone.”

If he wants to wrestle Michael Cole at WrestleMania XXVIII: “Absolutely, not. And not any where else either. That hand has been played. Time to shuffle the deck and deal new cards. Cole and JR don’t need to be taking valuable TV time that should be used by young talents who are expected to be the stars of the future.”

Whether Owen Hart will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame: “My assumption would be yes but not any time soon due to circumstances beyond WWE’s control.”

Whether Jeff Hardy will return to WWE: “My absolute guess would be no. At best, highly unlikely. TNA’s schedule likely fits Jeff best. I still remember his bout on TV vs the Undertaker. Great, WWE TV moment.”

The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania: “I never said Undertaker’s Streak at WrestleMania would end in the ring. I’ve actually said the contrary and that I did not think it would happen. That’s simply my opinion but it can only be determined in the ring. Obviously, the Streak will end some day when Taker retires which I do not expect to be this year. That decision is entirely up to Undertaker and how his body is holding up after years of combat.”

Ross also weighs in on The Rock/Cena rivalry, Undertaker vs. Triple H in a Hell in a Cell Match at WrestleMania XXVIII, WWE developmental talent, Ric Flair and more. His post is available here.

    how about something different with undrtaker put him in a triple threat with two other guys i’ll be interested in watching a storyline like that at wrestlemania

  • joseph

    Why do people go on about taker wrestling one match a year it happened for the first time in about 25 years in 2011 he might wrestle a bit more this year but i am an optimist he may well retire after this year hopefully 20-0 as triple h keeps saying you want an end which could mean Takers only come back to beat triple h at wm28 and then retire with his reputation intact after last year

  • Jeff hardy siuch a tit ha! He best not be in a wwe ring any time soon

  • Little Jimmy

    Jest Harvey lol, Those were the days with The Real “Mr Excitement” And “The Tazz”

  • Diesel

    And as far as Owen Hart going into the Hall Of Fame, when JR says “due to circumstances beyond WWE’s control.” In other words Martha is still being a bitch about he whole thing.

    The whole Owen Hart incident is a major sore spot for me and I do feel Vince McMahon is the reason why he’s dead and they handled the entire thing horribly just to exploit money, BUT Martha really needs to pull her head out her ass as well. I mean what better way for Owen to be remembered that to have him immortalised in the Hall Of Fame?

  • Diesel

    Lol Jeff Hardy….

    That guy should’ve been locked up a long time ago, and he’s beyond saving now. I was sympathetic at first but come on… how many chances is this guy going to be given?? WWE tried to help him multiple times : he screwed up so Vince got sick of him, then TNA tried to: he screwed up, and then he gets busted and has a major trial/court case and gets away with it because of the problems in the American legal system (I’m not being disrespectful to Americans when I say this, but if that had happened in the here in UK… or anywhere else he would’ve been sent down).

    I know wrestlers go through problems & I get that, but this guy really isn’t worth giving the time of day anymore. There are only so may times you can play the sympathy act and I’m fed up of hearing about him now. I know he achieved success and at one point I had high hopes for the guy, but he let drugs control his life and fell into a downward spiral which is a shame and I don’t see why WWE would take him back after all that.

    Sad sad sad journalism. I figured Middleton would do this.

    JR posted this BEFORE the elimination chamber. Read it.

    noob? I didn’t realize I wandered over to the the CoD forums. His streak won’t end, it has gone 19-0 why would they end it now.

  • Epic

    Second City Saints – dude if noob like HHH will end Undertaker’s streak then I wont watch wrestling again , NEVER omg .

  • Kris

    Yea easy to stay around for 20 wrestlemanias when for liek the past 4-5 years you only wrestle like 3 matches tops. Hell my mom could prob do that schedule

  • PinkSinCara

    Jeff Hardy is an overrated drug addict. He should face Fatt Hardy in a needle-on-a-pole match at Wrestlemania.

  • joe

    I would love to see Jeff stay clean and come back. The saga with punk was amazing. And his undisputed title match with taker was amazing. I still remember it to this day. One of my favorite ladder matches!

  • stockshark

    The Most honest article from JR in years hope its starting a new trend JR is one of the smartest Wrestling men out there and if he could just get his head outta Vinces rear he could do great things in getting wrestling back on track!!

  • Nicholas

    I don’t ever want to see Micheal Cole in the ring again it just plan bad.

    I don’t know why some people would rather see Cena end the streak rather than HHH. I mean don’t hate Cena what so every never have never will mad respect. But to me it just make more sense if it HHH that ends the streak and I feel that the Undertaker feels the same way. Besides Cena is going to have he beat The Rock at Wm 28 sorry love the Rock. But been away to long Cena going to show who is the man now.


    Jim Ross sucks that’s why he got thrown off Raw if you look back at matches from attitude era for example Austin v Taker SS 98 WWE has edited his commentary its so annoying “STONE COLD!!!!STONE COLD!!! THE TEXAS RATTLESNAKE! !!” give me a break the best announcer in business most over exaggerated annoying not a real cowboy gimmick so his blog in opinion has no stroke you suck now and you sucked then

  • stright-edge

    well, i sure hope it ends this year. i love watching undertaker he is amazing. but its kinda not right. i mean there guys been busting there butt. for there wm moment. then undertaker sets out all year and is handed one that is honestly the main event of every wm. no one watches it to see the championship match. they watch it to see the undertaker. he does deserve it. but at some point enough has got to be enough. if he cant handle to go all year. or at least a few months out of the year then he shouldnt get the wm match. this is in no way in disrespect to undertaker. but in all respect of the sport of wrestling.

  • Mark

    Face it Jeff should have never left the WWE

  • fivo goes west

    As long as Jeff stays clean. I can see WWE wanting him back. The name is still worth some money and I bet WWE would still like to cash in so long as he not a complete screw up again.

  • Second City Saints

    j.r. just spoiled wrestelmania he said taker wont retire this year so deadman will win lol

  • WeAreOne

    I would still like to see Jeff in WWE again

  • Hunter

    You have to earn the schedules that’s guys like ‘taker are on. Jeff hasn’t.

  • Sammo

    Jeff Hardy could probably handle a WWE schedule if it’s the same as The Undertaker’s!
