Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:
"CM Punk’s show closing promo on MNR is still seemingly the talk of the wrestling biz. It was the best promo that I’ve heard on TV in years. Can’t say it was the definitive ‘best ever’ but it ranks among the best that I can recall. Steve Austin, who cut some memorable promos in his day, was extremely impressed with Punk’s work as were several other great promo men such as JBL and Mick Foley…
Punk says that he is leaving after the MITB Ladder Match PPV in Punk’s hometown of Chicago in July. He also says he’s leaving WWE with the WWE Title. Those two elements certainly should make for some compelling TV on Monday Night Raw. Whether Punk wins or doesn’t win the WWE Title is a hill I choose not to die upon but Punk staying in WWE is something that I personally hope happens in some shape, form or fashion."
"Very impressed with @shawnmichaels _ hunting show on the Outdoor Life Network Tuesday night. Slick production, beautiful scenery, a successful hunt plus we were able to see a different aspect of HBK’s life away from a wrestling ring.
For those uninformed individuals who are railing on Shawn for actually harvesting animals please do your research. Many wildlife agencies WANT older animals harvested by hunters or the agencies themselves will do it because of over population of certain species. Plus, HBK feeds his family with a large part of the healthy meats that he gathers and donates a considerable amount of venison, etc to organizations that feed the needy. Shawn isn’t killing ‘Bambi’ for those that are tweeting us @JRsBBQ."
"Our [JRsBarBQ] business has grown to where we are having issues keeping up with the demand. We are going to keep the store closed temporarily until we can figure out how to handle the volume w/o adding to our infrastructure and bringing more people into the mix. Good help is hard to find and we are not motivated at this time to lease additional space and hire more folks.
However, we do have some ideas on how to make things work and we are certainly NOT going out of business. Bear with us and much sooner than later we hope to have this matter addressed and can let you all know what’s happening. Until then, http://www.wweshop.com/Products/JimRoss can handle your needs no matter where you live in the USA or abroad."
