JR Blog: Matt Hardy-WWE, Lesnar Fight This Weekend, ECW



WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com .. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:

Brock Lesnar’s Fight This Weekend: “Brock Lesnar is reportedly at 265 as we speak so there will be no cutting weight for the UFC Heavyweight Champion for next Saturday’s eagerly anticipated title defense against undefeated Cain Velásquez. I see this as good for Lesnar fans because already being at the required fighting weight will prevent Brock from having to tweak his diet or training regime prior to the fight in Anaheim.”

ECW’s Biggest Star: “Very arguable…very subjective…to me it was Taz in the ring but the MVP outside the ring was obviously Paul Heyman who captained a ‘pirate ship’ of eclectic personalties. Taz would have been the biggest star from ECW to hit it big in WWE if injuries had not derailed him in a WWE career that started with Taz tapping Kurt Angle in Madison Square Garden. I always thought Taz could have been a major player in the ring for WWE.”

Matt Hardy Leaving WWE: “Here’s wishing Matt Hardy well as he navigates the next phase of his career. Matt will likely have some time to reflect on his career and intensely prepare for the next phase. Matt had a great run in WWE where he gained notoriety and earned a fine living. Matt wanted to move on from WWE after being there for over a decade which is pretty amazing once one thinks about it. I remember hiring the Hardy’s back in the day and even remember that they designed and physically made their own wrestling attire. How many wrestlers can you picture working away at a sewing machine?”
