JR Speaks on Lillian Garcia, JBL, Kanye West/WWE, More

Nick Paglino

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:"Tonight will be Lilian Garcia’s last night as the ring announcer on Monday Night Raw. Lil, a South Carolina native, has been a mainstay on Monday night’s since 1999 and will be missed. Lilian told me that she was going to be forming a band and I can see her staying busy with, potentially, a multitude of music oriented projects plus she’s getting married next month, as I understand it."

"Lilian has traveled thousands of miles for WWE and was a fixture on the ‘Tribute to the Troops’ broadcasts over the years. I wish her the very best and she has been preparing for this exit from Monday night for quite some time. (At least she knew when she was leaving the WWE’s Flagship broadcast.) I wonder if Lil will ever contemplate writing a book? That would likely be an interesting read from a female’s perspective of life on the road in the wacky world of wrestling."

"I even saw on the ‘net that it was alleged that WWE had offered Kanye ‘$10M’ to step in the ring
and wrestle which is so outlandish and ridiculous that it’s insane. I can see why some wrestling websites do all they can to distance themselves from other sites as I read recently where I was in another state having a clandestine meeting with a company which was totally untrue. There was no meeting nor was I in the city that I was, according to a wrestling website, seen by eye witnesses."

"The 2010 WWE Hall of Fame class has yet to be finalized and made public but one name that I am hoping to see be inducted is Ron Simmons. Ron is in the College Football Hall of Fame in South Bend, Indiana and recently was inducted to the State of Georgia Hall of Fame. I could theoretically hear JBL inducting Ron and that being an entertaining piece of business."
