Jim Ross Reveals Melina’s Return Date, Talks NFL vs WWE and More

In addition to posting WWE’s Monday Night Raw rating, Jim Ross has touched on a number of other topics in his most recent blog found at JrsBarbq.com. Below are some highlights:

WWE Raw vs. Monday Night Football “The NFL wising up and making their Monday night schedule better from the get go and then going with the best available game later in the season, as I understand it, on Mondays poses a challenge but as the old promoters always said, “If we have what the fans want to see they will watch it.”

Friday’s WWE Smackdown debut on MyNetwork TV: “Friday Night Smackdown seemed to really be a solid first effort for My Network TV as the show breezed along without an alarming amount of talk and featured some good in ring action. Over 50 WWE Superstars were featured on the program and I think that every champion in the WWE was featured as well. The opening match was an eight-man tag that went three segments as I recall and really kicked the show off nicely and featured many of the individuals who will face each other at Sunday’s No Mercy PPV in Portland, Oregon.”

Melina’s Return: “I hear that WWE Diva Melina will likely not return to the ring until January but that her severely injured heel is improving on schedule.”
