The following are excerpts from the latest online blog of WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
JR On Jeff Hardy situation: Word has it that Jeff Hardy is ‘laying low’ these days and diligently preparing to meet the challenges that await him. The more I hear of this legal matter the more I think that there is MUCH more to this story than meets the eye and that Jeff Hardy is far from being a drug trafficker. To even think the latter is ridiculous. I feel confident that in the coming weeks that Jeff will have his day to reconcile this matter and to better address it publicly. Until then, Jeff is wise to remain silent and not feel obligated to tweet, etc his fans as no one needs or deserves any information on this issue until the proper time. Just from what I have been able to ascertain, this case looks much worse on paper than it actually is but let’s all allow the legal process to address this matter and remember that we, as citizens of the United States, are innocent until proven guilty.
JR on Lilian Garcia’s retirement: I don’t know the details of what going to occur as it relates to replacing Lilian Garcia, whose last night on the job was this past Monday, but I suspect that Justin Roberts, the current SD ring announcer, might get that nod. That’s just speculation on my part but Justin does a really nice job and is a reliable, professional young man. I think getting a female who also sings to do Lil’s role has its challenges. However, it’s obvious that a new ring announcer is needed and someone will be introduced next week or so it would seem. The young lady who worked in Tulsa Tuesday night seem to sing the National Anthem quite well.
JR on Hell In A Cell PPV: It looks as if there will be a grand total of three bouts contested inside ‘Heck in a Cell’ one week from this Sunday in Newark, New Jersey which will be, without fail, referred to as being in the ‘shadow of New York City.’ How far is the arena from the Bada Bing?
