Matt Boone

The following are excerpts from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:

Jim Ross on Steve Austin: "Steve continues to train about 5 days a week and is in great shape. Before anyone goes nuts and starts emailing me, ‘NO’ I don’t see Stone Cold ever wrestling again as he is devoting the majority of his waking hours to building his film career and is well on his way to amassing an impressive body of work. ‘Damage’ is a damn good, action adventure, kick your ass film."

Jim Ross on his new WWE deal: "I’ve also I read where I signed a new contract with WWE, I hope to BTW, however that is also wrong as what I signed was a contract extension to take us through the end of April. Re-signing with WWE is my top priority and I hope that we can get another, long term deal done sooner than later."

Jim Ross on WWE banning chair shots to the head: "Nice to see WWE focus on eliminating chair shots to the heat of their athletes. I blogged about this several weeks ago which I am sure means nothing in regard to this decision being made. Some asked if I thought this mandate was ‘politically motivated’ to which I emphatically say hell, no. It simply makes common sense and the overall health of the competitors has to be any companies utmost priority."
