JR Blog: ROH/WWE Deal?, Steve Austin’s New DVD and More

Nick Paglino

Steve AustinJim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Does WWE have a 'deal' with ROH? I don't know what type of 'deal' the inquiring person was inferring to but I know of zero 'deals' between the companies. For the record, I wish ROH great success and am anxious to see what type of product that they produce and the stars that they develop."

"I talked to (Steve Austin) today and we will be narrating, I think, three bouts that the 'Rattlesnake' has selected for his new DVD. I'm not sure of what bouts that we will be doing but I think that they will all be Wrestlemania bouts. Steve and I will be attempting to provide a very unique perspective to the fans regarding the mindset, strategy, emotions, etc of these big match moments. I'm really looking forward to doing this project and hopefully getting a peek at the rough cut of the DVD which I think is going to be exceptional."

"Why do so many wrestlers 'bash' others on line? Politics exist in all walks of life including Washington DC and the on going debacles there and in wrestling. These grappling gripes, etc aren't new. My first day in a wrestling locker room in 1974 one could easily see different alliances, diverse agendas, rampant jealousy, etc. Things aren't that much different today except that there is a much bigger format for the disgruntled to utilize called the internet."
