JR Blog: CM Punk/Chris Brown Feud, Santino/PPV Praise & More

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

On whether or not WWE will capitalize on a potential Punk/Brown feud: "I'd suggest that would be a classic, Gorilla Monsoon reply of "HIGHLY UNLIKELY." Chris Brown couldn't be melted and poured on the WWE Champion, plus I've never heard of Brown physically engaging any male."

Santino Marella seemed to be the standout at the end of the Smackdown Elimination Chamber match while watching from my La-Z-Boy. Santino is entertaining and has been around long enough that he has developed a following as evidenced by the reaction that he received from the live audience in Milwaukee. I'll be anxious to see how Santino's role on the PPV will be addressed on Smackdown.

It's hard to believe that on this date, February 20, in 1989 I was in Chicago calling the Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat NWA Title bout at the UIC Pavilion. This match stands the test of time quite easily and is one of the most memorable bouts that I've ever been a part of in my career. I have always gotten lots of props for my work on that match but the credit has to go to Flair and the Dragon.  Nonetheless that bout started a series of three matches with the two, WWE Hall of Famers that I loved being a part of in WCW in 1989.
