Jim Ross Blogs on Hulk Hogan Working WrestleMania, Kurt Angle Returning to WWE, Confirms Raw “Old School” Status

Mike Killam

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com, speaking on a multitude of different topics. 

On whether or not he will be a part of this week's Raw Old School broadcast: 

I will not. I do plan on trying to watch it on TV but I will not be a part of the broadcast. There's really no viable role for me to fill and it's much too far to fly in for a backstage 'cameo.' Raw certainly doesn't need a fourth voice at the broadcast table partaking in 'witty repartee.' Nonetheless I hope that RAW is entertaining and is respectful to the returning "Old Schoolers." 

JR also took a jab at some of the recent internet speculation on who will be returning for the 2014 Royal Rumble, and who will be working WrestleMania 30: 

According to recent internet speculation who ISN'T going to wrestle at WM30? The speculated list of those old timers returning to wrestle at WM30 in Nola and those returning to the Royal Rumble is somewhat comical.

Hulk Hogan wrestling at this year's WrestleMania PPV: 

No…I still don't believe Hulk Hogan NEEDS to have a single's match at WM30 to help contribute to the event's success. However, if he does wrestle,I'll be interested in watching it. I'd say the issue of Hulk wrestling at a WrestleMania is a now or never matter considering Mother Nature's contributions to his health and age. I hope that @HulkHogan gets one more 'moment.'   He's earned it and the event could use the boost.
