The following are highlights from the latest online blog from WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
Jim Ross on Tommy Dreamer: I received a wonderful text message from Tommy Dreamer on Christmas Day that confirmed that he was leaving WWE. Tommy did not mention what he was going to be doing but I would assume that Dreamer will be doing more wrestling. Tommy has been a great solider for the business and is a credit to his profession. He thanked me for my efforts on is behalf but he’s the one who deserves the thanks.
Jim Ross on new WWE signing: Saw where WWE reportedly signed Mystico, a talented Hispanic grappler, and here’s hoping that he speaks fluent or at least understandable English because if he can’t communicate with the English speaking fan base there is only so far any wrestler can elevate. Any wrestler, especially those where English isn’t their first language, who is not working on their verbal skills on their own time is cheating themselves out of cash. Sometimes I wonder how much work some wrestlers actually do when they are ‘off’ to enhance their careers other than their trips to the gym and the tanning salon. Perhaps a visit to a financial planner or a tax expert would be a good way to invest some time rather than shopping for more ‘bling.
Jim Ross on Bret Hart’s WWE return: Seems as if the Bret Hart hosting Monday Night Raw on January 4 is apparently a lock according to the DirecTV programming guide . I got a cool email from ‘Hitman’ during the holidays but we never discussed his projected or potential Raw appearance.
