Jim Ross has a new weekend blog up talking about Mick Foley, Steve Austin, the Hall of Fame panel announced for Monday Night Raw next week, and more.
J.R. mentioned that Mick Foley is talking about “major back surgery”, as he is in constant pain every day because of the brutal, hardcore style of wrestling he worked for many, many years. He also noted that he wouldn’t be surprised if Mick is looking at knee and/or hip replacement down the road. As we reported this afternoon, Diamond Dallas Page wants to use the hardcore legend as his new “project” for his DDP Yoga brand, so that could definitely help in the pre or post-surgery recovery.
Lastly, Ross revealed that he is working on some new “collaborative projects” with his good friend, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Both Austin and Ross host popular podcast shows, but it’s unknown at this point if their potential projects would be podcast oriented, wrestling based, or involve some of their many mutual interests.
J.R. also commented on WWE announcer Tom Phillips getting the promotion to the Smackdown broadcast team.
