Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JrsBarBq.com. Below are some highlights including some interesting comments on Mick Foley’s WWE departure.

Ross on Mick Foley leaving WWE: “The speculation regarding Mick Foley allowing his contract to lapse with the WWE and knowing at least a portion of Mick’s future plans has finally ended. 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… As I see it, and remember this is merely one man’s opinion, it would appear that Mick did not burn any bridges with the WWE and a return engagement with the WWE isn’t beyond the realm of possibilities for Mick Foley in the future.”

Ross on MVP Ribbing The Drug Tester: “Did you hear about the MAJOR altercation in the locker room area of a recent wrestling event where a top hand had it out with a tester. Seems as if someone in catering failed to test the mashed potatoes and they weren’t creamy and buttery enough and there was quite the issue that ensued. Thank goodness that the fish that was throughly cooked that day or this matter could have gotten really ugly and made big news on the ‘net. I hear a team meeting will be held to discuss this issue but that the potato matter won’t be specifically addressed. Hey, being a tester and doing one’s job can be very…’testy.'”
