JR Blog: Helms Trash Talking HBK, Lesnar Hosting TUF, WM27
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:
Wrestlers Who Spray Tan: “Yes, wrestlers use spray tanning products to maintain their tans. Tanning beds aren’t frequented as much by wrestlers as they once were. What a question.”
Alex Riley’s Potential: “I do have high expectations for Alex Riley. He seems athletic, articulate and intelligent. Only time will tell how far he goes but Riley has bonafide potential. FCW did a nice job of preparing Alex for WWE. Alex’s future success is largely up to Alex.”
Shane Helms Trash Talking Shawn Michaels: “I haven’t followed the recent interaction w/ Shane Helms re: HBK. I know its been out there but it really isn’t something that I care to invest my time. Everyone has the right to express an opinion whether I or anyone else agrees with it or not.”
Brock Lesnar Hosting The Ultimate Fighter: “Brock Lesnar knows how to ‘project’ on camera thanks to his WWE tenure so I feel Brock will do well as a coach for UFC’s TUF. Brock’s sound byte ability will be accentuated and he should sell a bunch of Death Clutch gear and his new book thanks to his weekly exposure on Spike TV.”
“If the state of New York refuses to license UFC, the NY state politicians are goofy as pet coons. End of story.”
Jerry Lawler Wrestling At WM27: “Have no idea if WWE will utilize Jerry Lawler as a wrestler at WM27 but if its ever going to happen this ‘might’ be the year. WWE is still developing many young stars and King is an established HOF’er who can still have excellent matches. For Jerry’s sake I hope he gets his Wrestlemania moment someday. If Jerry had his way he would wrestle full time and not broadcast but obviously that’s not in the cards at this time. WWE needs King at the announce desk arguably more than they need him in the ring.”
