WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on JRsBarBQ.com. Here are the highlights from this entry:
– The VIP tickets for next Saturday March 1 RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross are sold out for the 8 pm show and there are only about a dozen left for the early show at the Gramercy Theater. Tickets are still available nonetheless for both shows at http://www.ticketmaster.com. Hope to see you in NYC on Saturday March 1.
– Did an interview for the online version of Fortune Magazine Friday talking about the WWE Network. It will be available soon I’m told and I will tweet it out from @JRsBBQ.
– Great PR Friday night for DDP on ABC’s Shark Tank. No deal made but a helluva segment on prime time, national TV for the hardworking Diamond Dallas Page…if that is his real name. DDP Yoga is magic. DDP will be guesting soon on the Ross Report Podcast as will Jake Roberts.
– As I wrote in this space many, many weeks ago, it’s a smart move by WWE to come to an arrangement with @HulkHogan for WM30 and beyond, I assume. I’m unaware of any details but I see Hulk as a great PR vehicle for the WWE Network and to appear a selected events. I do not see Hogan needing to wrestle to add value to WWE efforts.
