Fuji’s HOF Induction, HHH’s Rehab, ‘Taker, More

Jim Ross has added a new blog over on his official website (jrsbarbq.com) where he talks about who will be inducting Mr. Fuji at the 2007 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, the status of some young talent under WWE deals and more. Here are some highlights:

On who will induct Mr. Fuji into the Hall of Fame:

“Crafty Mr. Fuji, who lives near Knoxville, Tennessee, will no doubt pull a major practical joke on someone at Wrestlemania. Fuji Vice will have Don Muraco as his presenter, unless something changes. Muraco is a great story teller too and was one helluva hand in his day and is already a WWE Hall of Famer.”

The status of Harry Smith & Nattie Neidhart:

“Our Canadian readers frequently ask about the status of Harry Smith and Nattie Neidhart. As far as I know they are training and getting ready to hopefully get the phone call from the WWE they are awaiting. I see no rush. More young talents are called up too soon in my opinion, than not, and the longer an athlete can prepare for the big time the better. Anyone showing up on a major TV program with less than 2-3 years experience in a comprehensive training environment is either a rare natural or they have been picked too green. Plus, I am not sold that re-forming a new-era Hart Foundation is the way to go, but I do know that the Hart kids are really talented and will no doubt make their marks on the business if they so choose.”

When Triple H will return to WWE:

“I am told that HHHâ<80><99>s rehab is going really well. HHH will work as hard as humanly possible to heal as quickly as Mother Nature will allow. I expect to see HHH back on Raw in late Summer or early Fall. Heâ<80><99>s a tough guy to endure this rehab procedure not once but twice.”

Thoughts on The Undertaker:

“Finally, I have never heard anyone stupid enough to cross the Undertaker behind closed doors or in a bar or in a parking lotâ<80>¦.you get the picture. Interesting question I suppose. The Undertaker is â<80><9c>The Manâ<80> in the WWE as it relates to seniority and locker room respect. Every good thing someone could say about Taker is well deserved. Using a Ladd-ism, â<80><9c>The Undertaker wears a size 17 shoe and his feet covers the ground he walks on.â<80>”
