JR: Too Many Trailers During Wrestling, Lesnar/WWE Update

Nick Paglino

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

"Wow, I feel that I am much more knowledgeable of what movies are playing and why I should go see them after watching an abundance of wrestling this week. I have no major issues with movie promotion or any other paying promotion on a wrestling show but the ad agencies should at least have the common sense to change the commercials from time to time. After about he third or fourth time one sees the ad it ceases to sell tickets. I started tapping on Tuesday."

"This just in…..I got word Friday morning that I WILL be in Calgary Monday night to tape a WWE Superstars bout, which will likely be done after Monday Night Raw due to the early start time. I think my two fondest memories of traveling to Calgary was flying there once to do a series of vignettes with Bret Hart prior to his Ironman Match with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania on a trip where Stu Hart had me in the dungeon ‘depriving blood from your brain.’ Plus, being in Calgary for the Calgary Stampede was really a great experience."

"Yes, the story that I blogged recently about the WWE NOT offering Brock Lesnar something like $40M for a seven year deal is accurate. Those numbers are not even close. Lesnar was likely offered a $1M guarantee with the opportunity to earn much more. There’s a legit chance that Lesnar could have earned close to that much over a 7 year period as he made it north of the $1M mark faster than any one, I think, in WWE history."
