The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:
JR on walking out of Raw: “Being the last one to leave ringside is hard to put into words and if I had it to do over again I would re-think my decision. I did what I thought was the right thing to do at the time but within a few hours of doing so I had second thoughts. With that said, I will be in my home state of Oklahoma Monday night out of respect for the state and for the WWE Universe who have supported MNR and my career for many, many years. I’m not sure if I will be allowed to return to ringside but hopefully that will occur. That’s entirely up to HHH who I feel certain, at least in my view, will NOT resign his post as COO and as the man in charge of Monday Night Raw.”
JR on wrestlers who will appear on next week’s Raw: “I know that several WWE Superstars will be competing Monday Night in OKC including John Cena, Randy Orton, Sheamus, the Big Show, and CM Punk. I’ve also heard rumors that the Superstars who walked off Monday night in protest may travel to OKC and might even protest outside the arena.”
JR on the current tag-team division in WWE: “Yes I do believe that tag team wrestling has a chance to make a come back in WWE based on what I have seen recently. Time will tell but there are some positive signs that would indicate that WWE is more committed than in recent years to develop more viable tag teams. However, for any one to think that today’s tag team scene will soon rival previous eras when teams stayed together for years and refined their skills isn’t likely, at least that’s one guy’s opinion.”
