Jim Ross Talks WWE Network, Curt Hennig, Hall of Fame Celebs

Chris Cash

Jim Ross updated the blog section on his website yesterday. Here are some of the highlights:

On the WWE Network: "As a DirecTV customer I'm intrigued that they have legit interest in the much discussed WWE Network but why wouldn't they? I know what you know about the proposed WWE Network but I'm hopeful that it becomes a reality in the future. I applaud WWE's diligence in taking it slow and deliberate in the planning of such a major project."

On the anniversary of Curt Hennig's death: "Can't help but think about Curt Henning aka Mr. Perfect today on the anniversary of his untimely passing. "Perfecto' was as good a natural athlete as I've ever been around in the wrestling biz. Curt starting so young and wrestling so much likely contributed to his lingering back injuries as back ailments are horrific for any performer in the sports entertainment biz. Curt was also one of the funniest guys that I  ever worked with on commentary and had legit, natural timing much like a guy he watched while growing up, Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan.

Curt truly loved life and some could argue that he loved it a little too much at times. Nonetheless I value the relationship that we had and the fun doing WWE voice overs at the Stamford, Ct studios back in the day. Chief Jay Strongbow nicknamed Curt "Dennis the Menace" because of his mischievous demeanor at times."

On the WWE Hall of Fame: "Curious to see if WWE adds another name to the 2013 WWE HOF class this Monday night on Raw.  This class is already star studded but it seems inevitable that another name, maybe two, will be announced. I'd assume a 'Celebrity" inductee will be named and I can think of several on a short list including Regis Philbin, Andy Kaufman, Lawrence Taylor and Cyndy Lauper among others. Stay tuned."
