JR Blog: Austin Update, Responds to Angry Fan & More

Nick Paglino

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

"Steve Austin confirmed with me today that he would be in Las Vegas on April 21 to introduce me at the Cauliflower Alley Club’s 45th Annual Banquet where I will receive the Art Abrams Lifetime Achievement Award. For Steve to make time for the CAC and for me is extraordinarily special considering that he is working overtime promoting ‘Damage’ on DVD and preparing to promote his June DVD release entitled ‘Stranger.’ Steve couldn’t be busier but he’s excited about CAC and being there on a special night for me."

"Got an email from a fan who seemed very angry at me for not being more ‘pissed off,’ his words not mine, about my professional status. Sorry to disappoint him or anyone else who feels the same but I’m blessed to have great health and that’s mighty important considering the alternative. Challenging times are not new to me nor are they intimidating or infuriating. Life is actually pretty darned good right now and, from where I’m sitting, is only going to get better."

"Speaking of medicine, Tommy Chong is encouraging me to get a medical marijuana prescription due to my three bouts of Bells palsy. I’m taking that one under advisement. I did get a nice email from Cheech and Chong thanking me for the BBQ Sauces and Chipotle Ketchup that we sent them after they freaked out over our products when they were in OKC on March 1 for Raw."
