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

JR on The Rock: "People who feel that Rock isn't good for WWE are missing a helluva story unfolding as he brings amazing PR and media coverage to WWE not to mention that he sells lots of PPV's of which everyone on the team benefits. I've actually had Tweets from fans that feel that Rock returning to WWE hurts the biz and other talents which I believe is completely wrong."

"Rock was always aggressive in how he approached the biz and refused to NOT be the 'top guy.' He frequently questioned his creative direction and how he was managed and produced while always remaining professional. Younger wrestlers need to attempt to interject elements of how Rock, among many, many others, approached their vocation. I'm a big proponent of maximizing one's TV minutes and for all talents to contribute to their TV personas even when it isn't asked for or used."

JR on The Undertaker: "If 'Taker was retired or planning on doing so, don't you think that WWE would have made a HUGE deal of it? Of course they would have. A man with, arguably, the most storied, tenured career in WWE, ever, will not go quietly into the night or without fanfare. I can easily see Undertaker defending 'TheStreak' on April 1, 2012 at WM28. Exactly when he returns isn' t on my radar but he will return and, just as his retirement will be some day, it will be HUGE news."

JR on his WWE Raw status: "Am I returning to Raw? There are no plans of which I am aware that has me returning to Raw on a regular basis however things change on somewhat of an on going basis. I enjoy dropping by on Raw from time to time. I had a great time in Boston recently."
