WWE Hall of Fame commentator Jim Ross recently updated his blog over at JR's BBQ, during which he talked about Owen Hart, WCW Clash of the Champions, Brock Lesnar's submission hold and its application throughout the history of the industry, his current position with the WWE and much more. The following is a highlight:
To those that ask...I'm not retired from WWE. I consult in talent development along with contributing in other projects such as the Legends Roundtable, WWE Home Video, WWE.com and more. Just because I'm not on weekly TV, IE Raw, doesn't mean that I've ridden off into the sunset.
Today is Owen Hart's birthday. The youngest child of the Stu and Helen Hart dynasty would have been 47 years of age. Owen will always be one of my favorite wrestlers for a variety of reasons. He was amazingly skilled in the ring in a variety of styles that he worked and sacrificed to master. Owen could execute basic, catch as catch can wrestling, high flying, brawling and submission wrestling as well as anyone I can recall. There was really nothing in the ring that Owen Hart couldn't do. The masterful practical joker made everyone that he performed with, whether they be friend or foe, better. That's an amazing gift.
