The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
JR on HBK: “While having dinner in OKC a few weeks ago with HBK we talked about three hours about a zillion things seemingly including family and business. During the conversation the subject of the WWE HOF came up and Shawn mentioned to me how much going in ‘some day’ would mean to him. Little did either of us know at that point in time that Shawn wouldn’t have to wait long and nor should he. HBK was a ‘natural’ for the wrestling biz. He was a life long fan. He was a very good athlete. He had a natural swagger and loads of confidence, some critics would likely say too much confidence, once he stepped inside the ring. HBK knew that he was going to be great because he was willing to put in the work and study to get there.”
JR on The Miz: “WWE has done a nice job of making Miz vulnerable and I’m guessing that Randy Orton is the favorite to win the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble in sold out Boston later this month. I, for some reason, wouldn’t bet the old farm on that one but time will tell. Miz is very beatable which is not a bad thing.”
JR on CM Punk: “CM Punk is ultra talented and in the span of a couple of episodes he has given me reasons to reinvest in Nexus again as I am curious as to how the Punk leading Nexus business plays out over time. More importantly, I’m curious as to what young athletes will ‘breakout of the group in time as individual stars.”
