WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following are highlights:
Royal Rumble Winner: “My early pick to win the 2011 Royal Rumble would have to be John Cena. (One of my favorite Rumbles as a broadcaster was working with Taz on his first Rumble PPV. Remember to check out Taz’ new venture at http://www.teamtaz13.com)”
Heyman vs. Savage in Broadcast Announcing: “Paul Heyman and Randy Savage were totally different broadcast partners for me. . . Nonetheless the two men were very different in many ways. Savage brought a wrestler’s mentality to the broadcast table whereas Heyman came as an antagonist broadcaster with a more manager-like mindset. ”
Vickie Guerrero Segment On RAW: “Strong feelings have been expressed by many individuals both enjoying the comedic exchanges and vehemently opposing such.
Personally, I find various things funny. I used to always laugh at ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ when they featured plus sized women slipping and falling on ice, etc. For some reason, large ladies taking a bump made me laugh. Does that make me a bad person? To some, it does. To most, I would like to think , it only says to them that I have a sense of humor.
Taste is a tough one to regulate. I’ve seen many, many things on pro wrestling TV show s over the decades that I could not and will not endorse. However, the ‘villainous” TV persona of Vickie G getting her comeuppance via one liners ala a ‘roast’ did not offend me, personally. Which is not to say that every one who reads this should feel the same way. “
