JR Blog: Austin/Harvard, Hall of Fame & New WWE Talent

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

"My dear friend and fellow WWE HOF’er Gerald Brisco attended the recent NCAA National Wrestling Tournament in Omaha scouting for WWE. GB told me that he met several athletes who expressed a desire to explore their career options in WWE. Smart move by WWE to send Brisco to Omaha in search of world class athletes with marketable personalities. I wonder if any MMA groups had representatives in Omaha because if they didn’t one has to wonder if they are really paying attention? Just asking…"

"Stone Cold is ubiquitous this week promoting his action/adventure film ‘Damage’ which is on sale now on DVD. Steve will be on the East Coast this week including a stop off at Harvard University. The Mrs and I will be buying multiple copies of ‘Damage’ to package with our own products for holiday gift giving for our ‘loved ones.’ What says that we love you more than a ‘Damage’ DVD and some Chipotle Ketchup?? Exactly."

"I look forward to attending the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Saturday night. It’s honestly one of my favorite, wrestling related events of the year. A close, dear, personal friend got us two, really good seats adjacent to the Hart Family Section which ended up being near Tucson. Hey, LOTS of Harts are attending as the patriarch of the family, Stu Hart, is being inducted. Gosh I wish Stu was alive to accept his award as his acceptance speech would be a classic and longer than Superstar Billy Graham’s and might even get us into Sunday."
