JR Speaks on Steamboat/Y2J, The Brand Split & More

Nick Paglino

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

"The match that may pleasantly surprise us is the Steamboat-Jericho bout. I’m approaching this (unofficially) as Ricky’s last 1 on 1 bout. I have loved his work for years and admire him as an honorable man & one of the best fan favorites ever. Chris Jericho is the perfect opponent for "The Dragon" which makes this match even more intriging to me as a fan."

"We get lots of questions about wrestling schools. I suggest that one look at the successful students the schools of interest have produced before making a final decision. I know that men like Harley Race, Danny Davis, and Lance Storm are all credits to the biz and can help anyone with the ability and aptitude increase their chances of finding regular work. But always bear in mind that the road to fame and fortune is challenging and many more will fail than will succeed. With that said, never give up on your dreams."

"After this coming week, specifically Tuesday night at MSG when MVP faces Dolph Ziggler for the U.S. Title, it looks as if WWE is going to be really serious about the brand seperation. I hope that assumption is accurate. I like giving more talents the opportunity to become stars.
