JR Blogs On Savage, Update On Hart Surgery & Smackdown Tapings

Bill Behrens


The following comes from jrsbarbq.com/blog/:

As I write this it is 3:30 a.m., I have answered many more of your emailed questions on the Q&A section of our website. I hope you will check them out. The on going Randy Savage questions aren’t making the cut so I suggest you quit sending them in as I don’t have any answers for you. Bottom line is I can’t address Savage’s issues with the WWE or visa versa because I don’t know for sure what the issue or issues are. Let it go.

Also some idiot has emailed me about 25 times the same exact question about HBK stopping Taker’s winning streak at WM25. First of all that match isn’t booked but obviously it would be a helluva attraction. No, I don’t think HBK would beat Taker and end the streak so please for the love of all that is good and Holy cease and desist this embarrassing and ridiculous line of questioning. I’m tapping and wasting valuable time deleting all these senseless emails that all say the exact same thing.

Finally a clarification on the Smackdown taping schedule. We will tape one show in Bridgeport, one in Baltimore, one in Toronto, and two in the Continental Airlines arena in December.

In January, at this time doubleheaders are scheduled for January 13 in Omaha and on January 27 in Indianapolis.

At this time the only double header in February is set for February 17 in Portland, Oregon.

These dates are subject to change but that’s the info as I have it at this time.

I got a great email tonight from Bret Hart who underwent knee replacement therapy a day or so ago in Calgary. Bret is already up and using his walker and expects to go home soon as in the next day or two. The Hitman will likely head back to his home in Kona, Hawaii in January and has put in an order for some BBQ sauces and other products from our on line store. I take great pride that so many of the biggest names in wrestling love our products.

I kidded Bret that now would be a good time for me to challenge him to a foot race and he suggested that we wait about a month for the contest. I would be happy to fly to Kona for a few days of “training” before such a monumental sporting event where I am sure I would suffer the agony of defeat. Bret was very positive and upbeat but has to be exhausted after a grueling book tour.

Without any reservation, I strongly suggest that Bret’s book would make a great holiday gift idea for any wrestling fan who really wants to read an honest account including one man’s strong and well founded opinion of his personal experiences during an amazing career. This business could really use a few “Bret Hart’s’ in the locker room today.

If Bret were back in his prime, one can only imagine how much $$$ he would be earning these days. More than he made on the weekly run to Regina or Saskatoon I can assure you.

I spent a good part of the evening personally autographing many of the items some of you have ordered on line and hope to do more this week before leaving for K.C. on Saturday for the OU-Missouri football game.

We’re also doing another radio remote this Friday from 11-2 at our Norman store with 107.7 KRXO and their midday star Lee Roberts. Come by and say hello if you’re in our neck of the woods. WE are opening our new drive thru facility in Norman this week or next.

Boomer Sooner!
