- Jim Ross has a new blog up on jrsbarbq.com where he talked about Nancy Grace:

“The polarizing Nancy Grace of HLN really was made to look ill informed and poorly prepared by her staff Wednesday night on her report of the death of the Ultimate Warrior. So much erroneous info was reported as fact that I actually felt bad for her. I’d like to believe that Ms Grace is not a mean person but she let down by her producers and research people notwithstanding those who wrote her script for her teleprompter. For Ms Grace to implicate Owen Hart into any drug or steroid scandal is egregious and appalling.

Pro wresting/sports entertainment is given little credit by the mainstream news media and, as we have seen, seemingly the only time the genre is mentioned is when there is a tragedy. I never heard anyone talking about the economic impact that WrestleMania had on NOLA or the hundreds of Make A Wish interactions that are granted, the work WWE does with the Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer organization, the support done in conjunction with the United States Armed Forces, among other great causes.

Good news isn’t news in today’s society or so it seems. That’s truly a damn shame. Ms Grace was made to look incompetent by her own people who seemingly relied on old info for the thrust of their story on Warrior and apparently did little new research on the sports entertainment world as it exists today. I’d like to say that I’m surprised by I’m not. Sensationalistic, controversial journalism is what sells and ‘selling’ IE ratings is all that matters when it comes to TV news on virtually every network.”

- WWE stock continues to drop following the announcement of WWE Network subscribers this week. It closed at $21.12 today, down over 7%. Today’s high was $22.77 and the low was $21.08.

- Taiwanese Animators, the guys behind the infamous Tiger Woods animation, have done a new tribute for The Ultimate Warrior:
