Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:
"I expect am exciting and must see edition of Raw tonight from Columbus, Ohio as it’s the last Raw prior to this Sunday’s Royal Rumble. As a fan, I’m anxious to hear and see the latest on the McMahon/Hitman saga, how DX is co-existing after last Monday night and both having strong, common agendas regarding winning the Royal Rumble match, and the latest on the WWE Champion and his #1 contender. Tonight’s broadcast might even be described as being ‘vintage.’ I’m just saying."
"Congrats to one of my favorite athletes/celeb’s, Gina Carano, for scoring a huge movie part in Steven Soderbergh’s latest film, ‘The Knockout,’ which is a spy film being filmed in Ireland. Gina can have a brand built around her and still draw positive attention to the Strikeforce brand no matter if she has one fight or a dozen left in her. Trust me…brand building is an art form and MMA fans in general love Gina. What’s not to love? Quality, women’s MMA, if properly branded and promoted, can be a big deal."
"Any Viking fan who places all or most of the blame for Minnesota’s overtime loss to New Orleans on QB Brett Favre needs to be drug tested. Having 12 men in the huddle when a field goal would have won the game in regulation is unpardonable. Do Viking fans honestly believe that they would have been in the NFC Title game without #4? Plus, my man Adrian Peterson, another former Sooner, has got to address his fumbling. Turnovers are the kiss of death no matter how talented a player might be."
