The following are highlights from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
Jim Ross on Bobby “The Brain” Heenan: “I talked to a friend recently who spoke with Bobby Heenan last week and ‘The Wease’ is at home, he was home for Thanksgiving, after getting out of the hospital where he was rehabbing his 2nd broken hip. Bobby was in good spirits which is a testament to his character considering all the challenges that he has faced. I hope to see Bobby on one of my next trips to Tampa when I visit FCW.”
JR on The Miz vs. Jerry Lawler: “Loved the Miz-Lawler show closer in the impromptu TLC bout for the WWE Title. I thought a really solid story was told, that the pacing of the match was at a level that could be easily processed and, equally as important, retained, and the closing moments had ample twists and turns that made a somewhat predictable conclusion appear to be up for grabs… King celebrated a birthday in style and the only thing that could top Monday night’s main event is for Jerry to finally get his first Wrestlemania match and this year in Atlanta would be special for the WWE Hall of Famer.”
JR on passing of Leslie Nielson: “The thing I remember most about being around Leslie Nielson is that he rarely was without his ‘fart cushion.’ He loved to create noise ‘o flatulence and would do it any time and anywhere. By all accounts the recently deceased actor was a joy to work with and truly enjoyed his WWE experience. I remember as a kid watching a young Leslie Nielson play the lead on a weekly, Disney TV show entitled ‘The Swamp Fox.’”
