JR Speaks On Bret Hart, Austin & More

Will Hengelbrok


Jim Ross has updated his blog at www.jrsbarbq.com, in this edition he speaks on rumors of Steve Austin being fired from WWE, whether Stevie Ray and Booker T are really brothers, and if Bret Hart would ever wrestle HBK again, here are a few things he had to say:

On Steve Austin and WWE

Did Steve Austin get fired from the WWE? Uh, no. He did quit a time or two, but that was a long time ago and things and times have changed, all for the better I might add. Steve is doing great and has two more movies contracted to do for the WWE. Even though ?The Condemned? did not burn up the box office as everyone wanted, I have yet to see a single wrestling fan that saw it say they did not like it. No one should worry about Steve, as he is still positive about his film career, as are all of us that know him. The one thing that Austin always had going for him was the will to be the best at what ever he did, and being an actor in movies is no different. My money is on Steve Austin. Movie critics will most likely never cut the WWE any slack, but that should come as no revelation to long time wrestling fans. By the way, did you ever see one commercial OUTSIDE WWE programming for ?The Condemned?? I sure didn?t.

On Booker T/Stevie Ray

Yes, Booker and Stevie Ray are brothers in the true sense of the word and both are living in Houston where Booker has started a small wrestling operation. I assume Booker?s brother helps him out with the school, but I am not sure.

Will Bret Wrestle HBK Again?

I would say that Bret Hart will NEVER wrestle HBK again. Or anyone else for that matter. That?s too bad, as the young wrestlers of today could learn a ton by watching Bret, but there are always DVDs.

On HBK’s Relationship with Hulk Hogan

I don?t know if HBK doesn?t like Hulk. That?s an HBK question. If I had to make a guess, I would suggest that Hulk will not be on HBK?s Xmas card list, but that?s simply my assumption. I doubt if either loses any sleep over what the other thinks of them, to be honest with you.
