The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:
On Old School RAW: “Been asked many times on Twitter @JRsBBQ and via Q&A’s here whether I will be a part of this Monday’s Old School Raw in Baltimore. I will not. I do plan on trying to watch it on TV but I will not be a part of the broadcast. There’s really no viable role for me to fill and it’s much too far to fly in for a backstage ‘cameo.’ Raw certainly doesn’t need a fourth voice at the broadcast table partaking in ‘witty repartee.’ Nonetheless I hope that Raw is entertaining and is respectful to the returning ‘Old Schoolers.'”
On hanging with country music star Toby Keith: “Enjoyed visiting with my Okie friend Toby Keith in NOLA as we stayed at the same hotel for the Sugar Bowl and had dinner together Wednesday night. We talked a little pro wrestling business and philosophy as Toby is a fan and a very successful business man to go along with his amazing singing career.”
On Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania XXX: “No…I still don’t believe Hulk Hogan NEEDS to have a single’s match at WM30 to help contribute to the event’s success. However, if he does wrestle,I’ll be interested in watching it. I’d say the issue of Hulk wrestling at a WrestleMania is a now or never matter considering Mother Nature’s contributions to his health and age. I hope that @HulkHogan gets one more ‘moment.'”
