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

"I wish I had been in San Antonio for the HBK Appreciation Night portion of the evening that was held after RAW went off the air. I'm a major HBK fan for many reasons and not all of them have to do with wrestling. I am grateful that I was a small part of the process that helped facilitate Shawn's WWE return after four years off. I was working for Bill Watts' Mid South Wrestling when Shawn had his first match there and remember him being taken under the wing of the Rock 'n Roll Express, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson. I don't know if Shawn Michaels is hand's down the very BEST of all time, it's an overly subjective topic, but I can make a valid argument that no one that I've ever seen with my own eyes has been BETTER."

"Really enjoyed the HHH/Lesnar business with @ShawnMichaels and @HeymanHustle adding greatly to the process. The segment left me wanting more which I perceive as a good thing. I was thinking that it would be a potentially long night for Shawn in his hometown, I speak from experience, but I was wrong. I was looking for the 'heater' and got an off speed pitch. Now I have even more to look forward to regarding this high profile matter heading into Summerslam. Lesnar telling HBK that "I'll see you before Summerslam" is a major declaration."

"Wade Barrett vignette…I loved it. Extremely well produced. "Barrett Barrage" might take some getting used to but the vignette itself featuring a man who has yet to remotely approach his potential was a hit."
