JR Blog: Matt Hardy’s Future, Wrestling Off-Season, More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"…I do not know his status or his future plans. I can draw the same conclusions that most can via what I read or see but I also can honestly say I do not know all the details nor do I want to. This is not my hill to die on any longer but at the end of the day my most important thought is that Matt’s healthy and happy. Life isn’t 100% about our jobs, especially the wrestling biz, but it can absolutely engulf one if one allows it to."

"No I do not believe that pro wrestling will ever become seasonal because of the massive TV rights fee deals that require first run programming on essentially a weekly basis. However, I do see how talents could be rotated in a structured way to allow them more down time to rest and recover. I think structured sabbaticals are attainable but I didn’t say that it would be an easy plan to accomplish especially in the outset."

"Watched an advance copy of the Chris Jericho DVD and I REALLY liked it. I hope that you check it out when it’s released in a little over a week. It’s got some awesome, rare footage on it and isn’t a match compilation that’s just thrown together. The near 20 year vet is one of the WWE’s very best, arguably the MVP of the talent roster as he is seemingly unbreakable, and will no doubt be a future WWE Hall of Famer."
