JR Speaks on War Games Rumor, BJ Race’s Passing & More

Nick Paglino

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

"I read on line where WWE was kicking around the ‘War Games’ theme for a possible return to PPV. I think that’s a good idea as the traditional ‘War Games’ concept was two teams of five and the bad guys winning every coin toss in existence which allowed them to always start with a 2 on 1 advantage.

No, I don’t endorse that ‘every match be a War Games match’ but I do think that it makes for a cool theme name and having one ‘War Games’ bout would be marketable if the table was set correctly with the right talents that all had organic reasons to be ‘teammates.’ Please read this carefully and don’t go into business for yourself inasmuch as I’m saying that this is going to happen but that it was merely something that I read being discussed on line and we all know all those things can be at times."

"Speaking of Austin, his new film "Damage" debuted at #5 at the I-Tunes UK store and #3 on the overall DVD sales at HMV which is the biggest retailer in the UK. That’s a great start for ‘Damage’ and I encourage you to check it out when it becomes available in your neck of the woods. Steve is apparently going to start filming another movie in Vancouver in the next few weeks. He’s a busy ‘Texas Rattlesnake.’"

"Our most sincere condolences go out to our friend Harley Race whose wife B.J. passed away on Friday. I was shocked when I heard the news and feel such empathy for the great Harley Race not to mention B.J.’s many, many friends. She was Harley’s best friend and constant companion and was always a joy to be around."
