Jim Ross Blogs On His WWE Future, Paul Heyman’s Fake Heart Attack On Raw & More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog over on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:

- Loved seeing the King back on RAW this past Monday night. Jerry’s feeling great and has dropped approximately 20 pounds via a more disciplined diet. We hooked up at the Westin Hotel in Columbus and rode to the arena together just like old times. Nothing had changed…the music we listened to…the topics of our conversation…King not stopping at stop signs…me giving him the wrong directions…nothing changed and it seemed like old times when we worked together every week.

- I talked to King Tuesday and he’s feeling great after his return Monday night and is looking forward to Sunday’s Survivor Series PPV. His voice sounded great today on the phone.

- The plan all along was for me to simply sit in for the King, do color commentary and not play by play, and keep Jerry’s seat warm until he was well enough to return to the announce table. I never heard anyone in WWE ever discuss King, Cole and me ever doing a three man announce team but that rumor or sentiment sort of took on a life of its own in some fan’s eyes.

I had a blast coming out of the bullpen and helping out but RAW is a Cole/King entity and I’m more than happy to watch from my La-Z-Boy from Norman until I’m needed again on any WWE broadcast. At this time, I’ve certainly got plenty of WWE projects to keep me busy.

- Several Twitter followers @JRsBBQ took some pretty stiff shots at me on Monday night because of what occurred in the ring involving WWE Champion @CMPunk and, of course, @HeymanHustle feigning a heart attack. When one stops and thinks about it, getting angry at a talent for a matter such as this is actually pretty ignorant. But I digress.

Was the post, Lawler verbal presentation my favorite aspect of RAW? No. The King’s return was the highlight of the show for me personally. But just like any other entertainment entity all content is subjective. Some folks will like some things more than others and there are some who will downright despise specific aspects of a broadcast.
