JR Blogs on Being “Overrated,” Talks About Size in Wrestling

Nick Paglino

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

"Hey, I like freedom of speech. That person had their opinion and took the time to make a sign, bring it from home, and display it for the world to see. I guess that’s one way to get ‘JR’ back on Raw. However, it did look like Michael Cole’s handwriting or maybe an ex-wife’s, but I can’t be sure…No harm…no foul…write what you choose on your signs. Have fun. And remember, sign makers, that BBQ is spelled B-B-Q. Perhaps Monday Night the ‘Sign Police’ was on a donut break and did not see the sign in question or perhaps they did….could be a new conspiracy brewing…one never knows."

"Anyone who puts exact physical requirements on any prospective new wrestler is never going to be class Valedictorian from where I sit. Stars come and have for decades come in all shapes and sizes. Stars have many intangibles that cannot be measured in an 8X10. Stars have to be athletic, in shape, have a wrestling aptitude, and an overwhelming work ethic. They must be students of the game. No one should be disqualified from consideration just because they are less than 6 feet tall and don’t weight north of 230 or so. If I started listing all the HUGE stars that were under 6 feet tall, we would assemble one of the greatest rosters of all time."

"I had a positive visit with an eye specialist today and my eye issues are stabilizing as long as I keep doing what I’ve been doing. I still have blurred vision and it’s not a ‘Happy Hour’ issue."
