JR Blog: Lesnar/WWE Return, Sting At WM, Austin Wrestling

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

JR on Brock Lesnar's fight at UFC 141 on Friday and a potential WWE return: "I’m a sentimental, Lesnar lean in a fight that will undoubtedly, in my view, end via knockout or stoppage. I’ve predicted Lesnar to win via stoppage in round two. Many of my MMA friends think that Overeem will knock Brock out. Two, big, heavy hitting heavyweights wearing four ounce gloves won’t have a stylistic fight but one of the Slobber-Knocker variety. If Lesnar fails to take Overeem down with bullrush type upper body lockups and if Brock hasn’t improved on his striking defense, Overeem wins. Nonetheless I’m a Brock Lesnar fan and hope that he prevails."

"Also, speaking of the former WWE Champion, IF Brock ever returns to WWE it will be for one, big mega event ala a Wrestlemania. Lesnar will NEVER go back on the road on any thing that even remotely resembles a part time schedule."

JR on Sting appearing at WrestleMania: "Another unique and somewhat unbelievable trend I’ve seen lately via Twitter and emails to this website are fans wondering if Sting will be at WM28 AND be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012. Apparently, those fans don’t understand the concept of a contract and the obligations that go along with said document. Fantasy bookers can be genius-like when they don’t have to contend with existing contracts or with the fact that some former stars are simply done with wrestling and want to do other things with their professional lives."

JR on "Stone Cold" Steve Austin wrestling again: "I casually mentioned on Twitter about a possible Steve Austin one more match scenario. I did this to answer a question and as a follow up to what Steve himself said in a recent interview. It would have to be the right guy at the right place and right time according to the Texas Rattlesnake. My suggestion was that the right time ‘might’ be at Wrestlemania in 2013. Nonetheless nothing is guaranteed and the decision is up to Steve and not any one else. However, doing it anywhere but Wrestlemania doesn’t make sense to me."
