JR: Who’s the Biggest WWE Star?, Is MMA Just a Fad & More

Nick Paglino

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

"One forgets how good Tommy "The Dynamite Kid" Billington was back in the day and how well the Bulldogs complimented each other. I was asked to compare a wrestler in today’s market place to Billington and I suggested Tyson Kidd. Tyson has the chance to be special if he stays focused and continues to evolve which only will come with commitment, hard work, and preparation……like all jobs."

"Before I forget it, anyone who honestly feels that MMA is a "fad" unfortunately comes off as badly as poorly executed, "wrestling comedy." MMA has tons of college wrestling programs, among other sources, from which to essentially recruit."

"If you are wondering who the hottest WWE Superstar presently is in WWE, it’s Jeff Hardy. As my late, domino playing friend, Ernie Ladd would say, case closed."

"A little old school "wrestling war" tactic going on this Saturday as Spike TV will air the Lesnar-Mir UFC 100 rematch at the same time, as I understand it, as Showtime airs a Strikeforce event. I still have Lesnar-Mir on DVR so I’m watching Gina Carano."
