JR Blog: Best Wrestling Minds, WWE HOF Update & More

Nick Paglino

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

Who Ross thinks are the brightest wrestling minds he's ever work with: "Short answer, there have been many. Vince McMahon and Bill Watts are in rarified air in my eyes. Pat Patterson, Dusty Rhodes, Paul Heyman, and Jim Cornette are all amazingly gifted in that regard as well. There have been many 'great minds' in the biz. However, someone is ALWAYS left off a list of 'the best' type lists which causes consternation and debate. I'd rather not ruffle anyone's feathers or hurt feelings just for the hell of answering a question."

When WWE will reveal more Hall of Fame names: "Likely soon after this Sunday's Royal Rumble which is their focus right now. No, I don't know who will be inducted, who should be inducted, or who I want to be inducted. There are many deserving men and women who should be enshrined."

Ross reveals a match idea he once pitched: "Years ago, I threw an idea on the table to have an Undertaker vs. Mankind PPV bout, prior to the Boiler Room Brawl or what ever it was called, on Alcatraz Island. We couldn't get it cleared legally at that time to do it. It was a rough idea with no final, final details and in hindsight might not have been one of my better suggestions. However, it did sound good at the time and packed plenty of 'sizzle.'"
