Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are the highlights:
-I have no ‘assignment’ for Sunday but I’m channeling Ricky Vaughn, Charlie Sheen’s character in the film ‘Major League,’ and assuming the role of the relief pitcher while standing by in the bullpen and ready to ‘throw the heater, Ricky’ if needed.
-Seeing HBK go into the WWE HOF is going to be particularly gratifying to me. After seeing @ShawnMichaels_ break into the business in Mid South Wrestling, I’ve seen the best and the worst of HBK. Traveling to San Antonio to visit with him about coming back to WWE after his 4+ year hiatus due to a back injury was one of the most profound trips of my career. It’s hard to believe that Shawn returned after such a long hiatus and from the first minute that he stepped back into the ring he was better than everyone else. HBK, HHH, and Undertaker, three, old school guys, arguably, in the eyes of many, stole the show Monday night on Raw on a night where MNR was loaded with star power.
-People have asked me for a prediction on the Lawler vs Cole match. Really. Really? Lawler wins in a ‘quicker than a hiccup’ bout and King won’t need Stone Cold to get it done. The thought of having to broadcast a Cole victory would be more annoying than an irritable bowel. Thank goodness that chore or possibility thereof will be left up to others or so it seems.
