Jim Ross Q&AA new Jim Ross Q&A has been posted over at JRsBarBQ.com, and below are some highlights:

I simply don't feel HBK is returning to the ring. I believe him when he says he's done.

How was the chemistry between you and Paul Heyman when working the announce booth?

It was awesome. Two complete opposites who were quickly able to refine our act. Paul's very talented.

In WWE's advertising, Batista is supposedly making a return in late February. As a fan of the business who dedicated a lot of their life to it and as such can make pretty good forecasts, how do you think he will be used in the run up to Mania and in the event itself? A title match? Against an up and comer? The streak?

If Batista returns he's obviously main event bound. Wouldn't surprise me.

What is WWE doing to Damien Sandow?

I can't answer your question as I'm not involved with WWE Creative. However, I like Sandow's persona. I think he's getting ample TV time and it's up to him to maximize his minutes, no matter if one thinks they are for better or for worse. That's what pros do. If he steers the course, more often than not, he will come out the other side whole. Legit talents who persevere generally prevail.
