Jim Ross Tells Us When the Draft Becomes Effective & More

Nick Paglino

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

"For the record I am told that after Backlash this Sunday, the WWE Draft will officially take effect and the brands will remain split and very little if any interbranded bouts will occur. I hope that is the case as it will provide new faces and others who need consistent TV time an opportunity to become stars or to become bigger stars. WWE is no different that the NFL, MLB, NBA, or Hollywood inasmuch as developing new stars is positively essential."

"I wholeheartedly enourage each of you to check out www.wrestlersrescue.org and consider helping my friend Steve "Dr. Death" Williams as we are trying to raise funds for him to have a device surgically placed in his throat so he can talk ‘hands free.’ Doc has beaten throat cancer and needs our help. Please check out the aforementioned website and help if you can. Thanks.
