JR On This Year’s HOF, TLC PPV, Lesnar Coaching In UFC
– Jim Ross has a new blog entry up, here are the main highlights:
The Hall of Fame: Emailer….I have no idea who will be inducted into the WWE HOF this year in Atlanta but your question as to if Wahoo McDaniel would be inducted I would suggest not likely. Do I think that Wahoo is deserving? Heck, yes. But I’m also biased when it comes to the former Sooner and one of the toughest men both physically and mentally I ever knew in the business. For those that saw ‘the Chief’ in his prime you know of which I speak.
TLC PPV: Looking forward to being in Houston for the WWE PPV, Tables, Ladders and Chairs this Sunday as a fan. As an announcer, broadcasting matches that end without a pin fall or submission are particularly challenging. I’m sure the broadcast team will handle this matter well but it is a different presentation for them and takes a different mindset on the approach to those types of bouts.
Brock Lesnar: If Brock Lesnar were to become a coach of UFC’s TUF I would not be totally shocked but it would be somewhat surprising. If Lesnar can market his upcoming book, add some marketing stretch to his growing list of sponsors, etc the idea would be viable. I do have concerns that Brock would want to relocate to Vegas for the 6-7 weeks that it would take to tape the next season but if Frank Mir were the other coach then the build to their much discussed ‘rubber match’ would be special.
