Jim Ross updated the blog section of his website at JRsbarbq.com. We’ve posted a few highlights below:

Ross on the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view: “The Hell in a Cell match felt like an instant classic. The Undertaker and Edge waged a physical war. These two superstars told an epic story and it certainly ranks near the top of any HIAC match I have ever broadcast. For me a great match needs a strong storyline and effort and this match definitely had those elements in place. Not sure when we might see Edge again after this conflict but his star is brighter than ever. As far as Taker is concerned, who’s been better for the long haul? No one in the WWE for my money.”

Ross on Bobby “The Brain” Heenan: I also heard that Bobby Heenan was doing better and is going thru speech therapy and watching plenty of baseball on TV. I love Bobby like a brother and he is one of my all time favorite people. I have never seen any one in the biz w/ so much all around talent as Bobby which includes wrestling, managing, and broadcasting. “The Brain” is one of a kind.”

Ross on Matt Cappotelli: “Enjoyed seeing Matt Cappotelli Sunday who looked great after battling brain cancer for seemingly the longest time. What a great kid who has endured what no one would ever wish on their worst enemy. Matt has taken tons of chemo and radiation and at this time the tumor looks non existent. Matt gets a MRI every other month to monitor any growth of the tumor. I can’t put into words how much I admire Matt’s courage and positive frame of mind.”
