JR Gives Some Serious Advice to Reid Flair, Buddy Rose & More

Nick Paglino

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

"Reid Flair, the youngest son of "The Nature Boy" was arrested again last week for another DUI and apparently in possession of heroin. The drunk driving matter is a serious issue but the heroin business takes this matter into an entirely new level of severity. Reid needs extensive, professional help immediately and he needs to take that help seriously, as in life or death serious. The young man is lucky that he is still alive and is flirting with disaster as would any one who uses and abuses illegal drugs and/or alcohol. I think being in the wrestling business should be the furtherest thing from Reid’s mind right now and quite honestly the wrestling biz simply might not be the right vocation for the son of arguably the greatest in ring performer of all time."

"Ever wonder why most wrestling bouts utilize no time limits on TV or at live events? Me, too. I think using time limits adds to the drama much like main stream sporting events that utilize a game clock in various fashions. I personally like the sense of urgency that time limits provides a wrestling match. Of course, that’s just one man’s opinion."

"Don’t be mislead by seeing the late Buddy Rose in all those late night, tag bouts on AWA Classics on ESPN Classic from time to time and think that Rose was just an o.k. in ring performer. Buddy Rose was, in truth, an excellent in ring talent and some of his bouts in the WWWF against Pedro Morales and Bob Backlund were of the big time variety."
