JR Blog: More on Jerry Lawler, Punk vs Cena at Night of Champions, Tenay’s Well Wishes to Lawler

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

I know that Jerry is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support that he has received since his near death experience. We've come along way since Monday night when we were shocked at what we heard Michael Cole report and then trying to force the worse case scenario out of our thoughts. There' s no doubt in my mind that Jerry will return to WWE broadcasting sooner than later plus I have no question that the King will also likely return to the ring if he chooses. His cardiologist feels that Jerry wrestling again is very doable.

C.M. Punk has been battling for 'respect' within the business of sports entertainment for years and I know on a personal level that it bothers him when the respect that the WWE Champions seeks is not there. Sunday in Boston, I expect to see a driven, mentally and physically tough WWE Champion essentially travel to challenger John Cena's backyard to defend the coveted WWE Title. I expect a demanding match where both men will challenge the other as they have never done before. It's been an emotional week in WWE in case you haven't noticed. The closing segment of Raw Monday night was pretty damned amazing in my perspective for many reasons. I felt the intensity and, as a fan, I liked it.

Classy of Mike Tenay to wish Jerry Lawler a speedy recovery Thursday night but 'The Professor' left out that it 'might' have been JR's BBQ that helped pull Jerry through.
