JR Blog: Sting/WWE, WrestleMania in Miami, Curt Hennig

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has posted a brand new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Sorry that some take exception when they ask for my opinion and I simply give it. No…I do not think that Sting is going to sign with WWE and wrestle the Undertaker at WM27. For those ‘Oliver Stone’s’ out there that have it all figured out and are threatening to ‘boycott’ WM27 over this self induced fiasco, do whatever it is that makes you happy. I’m fairly certain that if Sting and WWE wanted to do business together that it would get done. Plus, even though there is obvious renewed interest in the Sting persona, if I were WWE I would not do a Sting DVD until I had access to the man himself so that a proposed Sting DVD would not be a compilation but rather a documentary. I’d be happy to sit off camera and conduct the interview, for the record."

"Indeed Curt Henning was a special performer who was athletically gifted and naturally charismatic. Perfect or ‘Perfecto’ as Razor Ramon used to call him was a classic practical joker in the locker room and had the ability to make one laugh or want to kill him. I enjoyed doing commentary with Curt even though he really never had his heart into it because he was, like Brian Pillman, a natural born in ring performer who did not feel comfortable around the business in any role other than wrestling."

"I have mixed emotions about Wrestlemania 28 going outdoors with no dome to protect the event from the elements and to retain the crowd noise. I have been to the stadium in Miami for several games and it can get loud there so perhaps the noise issue may be less of an issue than some perceive. Nonetheless no one can control Mother Nature as I can attest by simply looking out my window where I’m sitting. Bottom line about WM28….being in South Florida during the last week of March until early April can’t be all bad. Wrestlemania is our Super Bowl and no matter where it’s held it will always be special."
