WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.
WWE Total Divas premier: Enjoyed watching E’s Total Diva premier episode Sunday night. I think that my wife enjoyed it more than I did but I thought it was very well done. I remember in the early days of heading the talent relations department at WWE, how few Divas that we had on our regular roster. Then it seemed as if it just exploded and we suddenly had a locker room full of talented ladies who were just as competitive on all levels as their male counterparts. Managing the females was never boring or predictable but I found that most of the women were actually more honest in their business discussions than many of their male peers. Our hiring of so many gifted ladies helped usher in the attitude era and paved the way for today’s divas and the reality show that many of us enjoyed last night.
Opinion of John Cena: “Being a former head of talent relations, I’d take a locker room full of John Cena types as it relates to work ethic, passion, toughness, dedication, reliability and heart all day long. Those that can’t see that likely haven’t left their Mommy’s breakfast table yet. I know that @steveaustinBSR feels much the same way.”
WrestleMania 30 Main Event: “… Whatever is positioned as the main event of that event outside the Undertaker’s Streak match, which I feel will happen in New Orleans, will be hard pressed to outshine the advance publicity and anticipation for the Deadman’s next challenge. I’m unaware of how many more Streak matches in which the Undertaker will compete but I personally take it one year at a time and always look at each WrestleMania/Taker match as possibly his last one. In other words, for me, WWE would have to book an out of this world main event to over shadow The Streak match at WrestleMania for this fan. I hope that both happens.”
