JR Comments on Last Night’s Raw Set & Lesnar’s Diagnosis

Nick Paglino

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

"From what I read, Brock Lesnar may have diverticulitis. That’s not good. I had diverticulitis and diverticulosis along with a perforated large intestine and a tumor on my colon so I can identify what the UFC Heavyweight Champion is going through. Hopefully, diverticulitis is all that is going on with Brock because if that’s the case I think that he can likely fight again in several months. Issues with the colon however may dictate a different story."

"This is a hugely painful ordeal and I was stupid enough to work about a month’s worth of Raw’s before the Mrs. forced me to see a doctor… My doctors have all told me that if I had ignored my situation and continued to try and ‘John Wayne’ my way through it that I would have been dead in 30 days. I ended up having 13 inches of my large intestine removed plus a tumor removed from my colon. With all that said, Brock needs expert care and my suggestion would be, in a perfect world, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota."

"I like the short, smaller set as WWE used the short, live event entrance for the show instead of the long ramp entrance which kills a bunch of seats. Over 20,000 fans were in the Garden Monday night of which we heard on multiple occasions."

"We may have heard it with such regularity that I thought we might might be the audio daily double at the end of the night. Seriously, that was a huge crowd and an accomplishment for any event. I don’t know but I assume that that short entrance way was for MSG or other similar arenas and that the traditional entrance will be used next week but that’s an assumption."
