JR Speaks on Batista’s Retirement, A Possible Wrestler’s Union

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

"Been reading where Batista ‘may retire’ in a year or so but I’d bet that won’t happen. Unless Batista has saved a boat load of cash I say he stays in WWE and makes more of those big pay days and seven figure years. Big Dave likes the good life, who doesn’t, but the ‘good life’ isn’t facilitated with coupons. Dave’s value to WWE, considering especially the overall lack of main event depth may never be greater. I know I throughly enjoy my paychecks even thought I feel I’m underpaid (who doesn’t?) and hope to successfully negotiate a new contract with WWE when the time comes later in 2009. Hey, we ALL feel like we’re under paid, right?"

"I still find it humorous when older, ex-wrestlers talk about forming a union. I say it will never happen in my lifetime. Wrestlers, in general, are not the most trusting group and I’ve always said that if you get more than a dozen or so together that they couldn’t agree on where to go for lunch much less elect their union leaders. I used to discuss this point with Jesse Ventura, who likes to argue for the pure hell of it at times.
