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

"I do not perceive this development to likely not return to weekly TV broadcasting to be a negative one as a new schedule simply makes it easier on me travel wise and will hopefully help me keep lingering health issues in check. My goal is and has always been to help ‘the team’ which means WWE as a whole. I’ve been fortunate to have had many years of positive experiences in several different, key areas where we have earned varying levels of success. I can still contribute in many of those areas or other platforms. Those plans are still being formulated but I am on board, in theory, and look forward to new responsibilities and challenges."

"I have every intention of being at WM26 and if that is to simply spend time with my wife and friends and enjoy the weekend as a fan then I’m perfectly fine with that. For a life long, wrestling aficionado to be able to enjoy an event of this magnitude highlighted by so many historically significant wrestling matches sounds like a great weekend to me. However, and perhaps egocentrically, I will say that if called upon to broadcast a match or two I intend on kicking some commentating ass. I’m just saying."

"Really smart hire by WWE to bring Dennis Condrey on board to help train prospects in FCW. Condrey is an old schooler who throughly understands the psychology of being a great performer and was one of the most fundamentally sound wrestlers that I was ever around. I hope that the young people in Tampa realize just how lucky that they are that they have been given an opportunity to learn under Dennis, among others already in the system."
