JR Blog: Randy Savage/WWE, Bobby Heenan’s Health, More

Nick Paglino

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

"The news of Bobby Heenan falling, apparently twice, and breaking his shoulder, pelvis, and hip are sobering. I think the world of ‘The Brain’ who will undergo shoulder surgery on August 4 and consider him a dear friend. When I first went to WWE in 1993 from the ‘enemy’ (WCW) Bobby and Gorilla Monsoon were the first two people who really took me in and made me feel welcomed in a new environment. They were in the minority but they had enough clout that it helped others come around to simply giving allowing themselves to get to know me and then make a decision based on fact not who my previous employer was."

"WWE is expecting north of 50 individuals, both male and female, to their tryout camp today thru Sunday. I will be at the camp all day Saturday and Sunday. One never knows what to expect during these ‘pot luck’ affairs but my wish is that if there are 50 or so wannabes that WWE can find 2-3 keepers. Let’s just hope that all are in acceptable, athletic shape as I, personally, have no time for those that show up too out of shape to put their skills on display."

"I do not know any more than most fans about WWE’s updated relationship with Randy Savage or what the future holds for WWE/Savage, if any thing. It seems that a marketing arrangement has or is being established and one could always speculate that could eventually morph into more. Yes, Randy Savage is deserving of the WWE HOF and perhaps one day he will be inducted which would be a great moment for his many, loyal fans. Until then, let’s just sit back, be patient and wait."
