JR On CM Punk’s Future, The Upcoming Stone Cold DVD, More
Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
-It is expected that CM Punk will be leaving the WWE after this Sunday’s PPV in Chicago. I see no signs that MITB and @CMPunk vs. @JohnCena won’t be Punk’s last match in WWE at least for the foreseeable future. I am extremely intrigued on how this matter will play out Sunday on what seems to be one of the most talked about PPV’s of the year. Without question, expectations for Cena vs. Punk are extraordinarily high. It’s not often when a star leaves a company literally ‘white hot’ but Punk is a unique guy who seems to have his mind made up that Sunday is it…..for now.
-Why will the upcoming @steveaustinBSR DVD be different than previous Austin DVDs? The two biggest reasons are that Steve himself will be hands on as a producer of this DVD and will be selecting the footage/content PLUS with social media as it is fans are flooding various sources with ideas and suggestions as to what they would like to see in this presentation. Social media wasn’t too advanced when the last Austin DVD was released. I know on Twitter @JRsBBQ that we’ve gotten a ton of suggestions from fans for this DVD. I’ve always believed that one should listen to their customers.
-Talked with Austin earlier today and he’s amped about this project because he’s going to be able to be much more involved in it and to be able to address several matters that heretofore haven’t been. I’ve done a three hour interview already for this DVD and will hopefully be able to help in other ways if called upon.
