Jim Ross has a new blog up on his website discussing the upcoming JBL/Cena “Parking Lot Brawl” match, rookie wrestlers watching (or not watching) old matches to learn from, a Vickie Guerrero donation, and more. You can read the full article HERE. Here are a couple of excerpts:

On Rookie Wrestlers:

I wonder how many rookie wrestlers watch old DVDs of these men, among so many others, simply to process the in-ring psychology? My instincts say not enough but would rather invest their free time in hitting the bars, partying, and acting like itâ<80><99>s their first “spring break”.

Recent Pet Peeve:

This weekâ<80><99>s wrestling pet peeve: wrestlers who compete while wearing jewelry. This includes those “still on the honeymoon period” newlyweds who tape over their wedding bands. Maybe I have missed it and I could be wrong but I donâ<80><99>t recall seeing any NFL or UFC athletes wearing their wedding bands while doing their work. Bling in the form of necklaces have got to go, too. I remember once having to convince a wrestler not to wear his wristwatch in the ring even though it made his wife happy as the time piece was a gift. As time came to pass it worked out that if he had stopped seeing his mistress that he would have made his wife even happier.
