Jim Ross has updated the blog section of JrsBarbq.com and had this to say regarding Mick Foley’s departure from WWE and his new deal with TNA:

“Obviously, Mick cannot and will not be a full time wrestler for any organization but one can easily see Mick wrestling sporadically meaning once or twice a year if everyone involved in this scenario is of sound mind. Mick has many diverse, creative interests and my sense is that he is looking to explore TV opportunities that might come his way. Many of us have said for years that Mick would be great in a TV sitcom. Plus Mick has many more books left to write. No matter what Mick does I wish him only the best. It will be interesting to see how Mick is utilized and one can bet a slab of ribs that subject will be under the proverbial microscope by many within the business and more specifically the â<80>~rasslin media. In the short time I had broadcasting with Mrs. Foleyâ<80><99>s baby boy, Mick became one of my favorite partners. If the opportunity had presented itself, I feel strongly that we would have really jelled. Be that as it may, I have nothing but respect for Mick wanting to explore other options and forms of entertainment with the Braverman-Bloom Agency who will look after Mickâ<80><99>s interests well. As I see it, and remember this is merely one manâ<80><99>s opinion, it would appear that Mick did not burn any bridges with the WWE and a return engagement with the WWE isnâ<80><99>t beyond the realm of possibilities for Mick Foley in the future. No one in their right mind can argue that Mick Foley isnâ<80><99>t WWE Hall of Fame worthy at some point in the future.”

WWE will be holding a press conference tomorrow to announce that they have reached an agreement to air WWE programming in Mexico.

On August 23, former WWE and TNA wrestler Chris Harris spoke out about his WWE release at the Shimmers Ballroom during an NWF event. The following footage is from the event:
