The following is an excerpt from the latest online commentary from WWE Hall Of Famer announcer Jim Ross:
"HHH guest on NBC’s Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon this Tuesday which will be good for WWE, Raw, and Summerslam. I thought HHH was really entertaining last week on Raw and definitely has a marketable sense of humor that perhaps we don’t get to see enough of on TV. I personally like seeing another dimension added to "The Game’s" tough guy persona.
Nice to hear that Ricky Steamboat, Jr. is now competing in Puerto Rico. Getting all the worldly experience that he has received in wrestling is great training for young Steamboat who, as I mentioned long ago, is going to be a big star in wrestling if he continues to improve and stays healthy. The son of "The Dragon" is being schooled perfectly and is getting used to life on the road, different styles of in ring styles and will be so far advanced from the young men and women in a training camp it won’t even be close. Nothing can replicate young wrestlers getting ready for "Broadway" like wrestling a variety of competitors in a multitude of environments. Plus, getting used to being a responsible traveler is also a benefit.
It will be interesting to see how the Calgary fans respond to Sgt. Slaughter Monday night on Raw. Nationalism may well reign supreme or the fans may look upon Sarge respectfully considering that he is a former WWE Champion as being a WWE Hall of Famer.
I have no idea if Bret Hart is going to be in Calgary when WWE passes through Monday night but it would be great to see him if he were. I know I speak for many who will be in attendance when I say that. "
