The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
JR on his return to WWE Raw this past Monday night: “It was very exciting Monday night getting a shot to work back on Monday Night Raw which was my broadcast home for so many years. I felt a little rusty at times but getting a strong main event with time in which to invest, Mysterio vs. Cena, was helpful and was also really fun to call… Next stop will be Indianapolis for Raw Monday night at Conseco Fieldhouse where, I assume, we will roll out the three man booth with King, Cole, and me.”
JR on Steve Austin vs. CM Punk: “Do I think an Austin vs. Punk match would ever happen? Same old story, never say never. Punk would love it and Austin likely would as well if all the pieces fell into place such as Steve’s professional schedule, etc. I don’t know the answer but right now I’d say it’s somewhat of a long shot.”
JR on upcoming Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart DVD: “Speaking of great DVDs, I am told that the Hitman/Heartbreak Kid DVD that I moderated will be released around October 25. I can assure you that after 4+ grueling hours of grilling the two WWE HOF’ers who sat side by side during the interview that this DVD is a ‘must see.'”
