JR Blog: Orton’s Suspension, Heyman’s Advice, Lesnar/UFC

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

Amazed at the amount of questions we have received on Twitter @JRsBBQ regarding Randy Orton's 60 suspension from WWE for a 2nd violation of WWE's Wellness Policy. Not too sure what there is to not understand … Bottom line is that the business as always been about such things as "when one door closes, another door opens" and that "being in the right place at the right time" and both are still valid and viable in today's ever changing world and that includes sports entertainment.

As @HeymanHustle pointed out on Twitter earlier this week and as I've mentioned here many times, talents need to become much more motivated and aggressive in obtaining meaningful exposure and then 'maximizing their minutes.' As the old sales cliche goes, one won't get the order until one asks for it. To add to that cliche with another, one can't sell goods out of an empty wagon. Translation…do what ever is necessary to professionally and legally get noticed and then be able to back it up once your number is called. There has never been a more opportune time for talents who have the drive, determination, ingenuity, and physical talent to elevate as roster depth at the top of the card is ripe for the pickings.

Brock Lesnar Meeting With UFC Last Weekend: "What would I think of Brock Lesnar attempting to become a 'two sport' guy and perform in WWE and fight in UFC at the same time frame? I'd suggest that it would be ill advised and that it can't be done on the highest level of each genre in an efficient manner. Obviously, a person could do it, theoretically, and enhance his earnings over the short haul but it seems as if it would be too taxing an issue on one's body to attempt such a feat. I have no idea is that idea is even on Lesnar's radar but we've gotten the question here a great deal. I'm not in touch with Brock and haven't been for years so my take on the matter is merely one man's opinion.
