Jim Ross Blog: CM Punk/MITB PPV, Steve Austin, More

Matt Boone


The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:

Jim Ross on CM Punk: “It is expected that CM Punk will be leaving the WWE after this Sunday’s PPV in Chicago. I see no signs that MITB and CM Punk vs. John Cena won’t be Punk’s last match in WWE at least for the foreseeable future. I am extremely intrigued on how this matter will play out Sunday on what seems to be one of the most talked about PPV’s of the year. Without question, expectations for Cena vs. Punk are extraordinarily high. It’s not often when a star leaves a company literally ‘white hot’ but Punk is a unique guy who seems to have his mind made up that Sunday is it…..for now.”

JR on Steve Austin’s new DVD: “The two biggest reasons are that Steve himself will be hands on as a producer of this DVD and will be selecting the footage/content PLUS with social media as it is fans are flooding various sources with ideas and suggestions as to what they would like to see in this presentation… Talked with Austin earlier today and he’s amped about this project because he’s going to be able to be much more involved in it and to be able to address several matters that heretofore haven’t been. I’ve done a three hour interview already for this DVD and will hopefully be able to help in other ways if called upon.”

JR on his BBQ business: “We finalized a deal today to utilize WWEShop as our exclusive distributor for on line sales of our products. More details are being addressed on this matter but http://www.wwwshop.com/Category/JimRoss is the place to go to support our ever growing family business. We will be doing some exciting promotional things with WWEShop in the near future as we speak they ship throughout the USA and worldwide. We will likely re-open our store on this site in the future to sell items such as our personally autographed cookbooks but all the sauces, ketchup, mustard, and beef jerky on line sales will be handled by WWEShop.
