JR Blog: More on TNA Meeting, Henry’s Arrest and More

Nick Paglino

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

"Although many wrestling websites do a really nice job in reporting on the biz some obviously go with what they hear more than once and then consider such gospel. For example, it was reported that I met with TNA executive Dean Broadhead, who I have never met in my entire life nor could I pick him out of a police lineup."

"As I mentioned on Twitter late Friday night, Twitter.com/JRsBBQ, we have been approached with an intriguing, reality show concept that has the potential to be fun, comedic, and still feature unique action. Another, viable non wrestling option that has merit that has come our way."

"I wasn’t there. I heard one side of the story of which there are always two. I like Mark Henry, even if he is a Texas Longhorn fan (that’s a joke), and feel that this matter may have simply perhaps been a ‘rib’ gone awry involving some very tired, frustrated travelers. Think of it this way, if Mark Henry had really wanted to assault a fan who could have truly restrained Mark?"

"Mark Henry isn’t a dumb guy nor is he going to put himself and WWE in a position to where Mark is arrested and detained in a foreign country. Not withstanding the fact that Henry would likely be sued for all he has by the offended party. Again, I wasn’t there but I know that under normal circumstances that Mark Henry is a good natured man of character who I have known for years since we signed him in around 1995 or 96."
