-JR on Chyna: “Really sad to hear about Joanie ‘Chyna’ Laurer’s recent troubles. I am thankful she is alive after apparently overdosing on her birthday. I truly hope Joanie gets more professional help, the WWE is an option for her, with whatever issues she has and find true happiness in her life. I’m not sure that her kind of happiness is going to be found in Tinseltown.
“Joanie was always so health conscious when she was on the WWE roster and the reports about her issues the past several years have been personally troubling to me. She had many challenges in her life LONG before she arrived in the WWE which I honestly feel are at the root of her problems today. Nonetheless, I am no Dr. Phil but I do hope that Joanie gets better and finds a vocation that is personally rewarding to her.”
-JR on Lesnar vs Mir: “Frank Mir vs. Brock Lesnar is apparently set for the spring of ’09 in perhaps Montreal. Lesnar is one who can self motivate himself primarily for the cash but also as a competitive SOB who will seek a level of retribution for losing his only MMA contest to Mir via submission. Mir shocked the world Saturday night but a bigger shock will be if the rejuvenated Mir can beat Brock Lesnar to unify the UFC Heavyweight Title which in itself is a good thing. The last thing the UFC needs to allow to happen is to become like boxing and have a seemingly endless list of champs per weight class.”
