JR Blog: WMania 28 Tickets, Rock/Cena, Austin’s New DVD

Steve AustinWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Rock vs. John Cena on April 1. 2012 has WM28 being a hot ticket with over 43,500 tickets already sold and with some projecting that this mega event could gross around $9M in ticket sales when all is said and done in South Florida. Will Rock have noticeable ring rust this Sunday after coming off a seven-plus year absence away from the ring? Possibly to some degree but Rock is such an excellent, natural athlete who stays in top condition that most won't detect significant ring rust."

"UFC on Fox got amazing TV ratings for a 64 second fight in a one hour window and accomplished all that UFC likely set out to do and that was to introduce UFC to new fans around the world. Mission accomplished. Too many Monday morning QB's like to second guess @DanaWhite on not having more bouts on this broadcast but I find that argument laughable. There were no significant 'missed opportunities' for UFC on their debut on Fox in my view other than I would have liked to have seen a slick, Fox produced highlight package of memorable moments in UFC history including some of their biggest stars and a few knockouts and submissions."

"The Stone Cold Steve Austin DVD will be available to the masses on November 29. Got my advance copy and this one is another hit for WWE. The highlight of this must see DVD for me personally was doing alternate commentary with Steve on WrestleMania bouts against HBK, Bret Hart and the Rock. We had a blast on those three, epic bouts and it's an exclusive feature that you're sure to enjoy."
