JR Blog: Austin/Raw, Big Update on His WWE Contract Status

Nick Paglino

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

"I talked with Steve this weekend and he was really excited about being back on Raw and feeling that live audience, adrenaline rush that one experiences. I cannot name any wrestler who better connected with their audience than did Stone Cold Steve Austin and I’ve seen a few in my day. I even think Steve was going down from LA to San Diego on Sunday, he’s still old school, to be ready to rock the house Monday night. Obviously, WWE will be promoting the film ‘Damage’ starring Stone Cold that will be out on DVD on March 23 which is only 8 days from now."

"Gorgeous George set the trend for 100′s of wrestlers that would follow him into the business with his over the top, flamboyant behavior that drew attention to the man with the platinum blond locks. During his matches, George cheated to gain unfair advantages in a manner that has been repeated countless times within the world of pro wrestling and still works today when properly executed. The ‘cowardly villain’ persona was truly perfected by Gorgeous George."

"I will be signing another contract extension this week with WWE to allow us to get past Wrestlemania and to give us more time to finalize our newest agreement which will hopefully see me remaining with WWE for the long term future. At least, that’s the goal for all involved. I’m going into this negotiation with a positive frame of mind and hopeful that all will work out to everyone’s mutual happiness at the end of the day."
