Jim Ross Blog: Heyman vs. Ryback, 2013 Hall of Fame, Broadcasting Future
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog on JRSBBQ.com. Here are some highlights.
Paul Heyman vs. Ryback at MSG last night: “Paul Heyman @HeymanHustle stepped into the ring in Madison Square Garden Thursday night to face @Ryback22 of all people. Ryback won. Shocked? The point here is that even though Heyman likely knew that this encounter wouldn’t work out favorably for the New York native, he likely fulfilled a bucket list moment by being in a match in ‘The Garden.’ Happy Heyman started his career as a teen photographer in MSG back in the day some 25+ years ago.”
If he’s done broadcasting: “I think not. I enjoy my guest shots on the NXT broadcasts and one never knows when WWE will utilize me for selected events in the future. As I said in my last blog, if I only make one appearance on WWE TV or PPV, other than NXT, in 2013 I hope it’s at WM29 because it means so much to me personally. But if that doesn’t happen I’ve had my ‘run’ that I’m very proud of and blessed to have had.”
The 2013 Hall of Fame: “As we usually do this time of the year, I’m getting tons of questions regarding who will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 as a part of WM29 in the much anticipated ceremony to be held at Madison Square Garden. Apparently the internet wrestling community has more info than do I as some have ‘inside info’ on who’s being inducted. Obviously, I don’t have such sources. I do know that many men and women are deserving and it’s not my place to say who doesn’t belong. I remain steadfast in that I feel MSG would be a wonderful place to induct the great Bruno Sammartino if he would accept the induction as I know that many of his fans, some in Bruno’s age group, would love the moment as would their kids and grandkids. That’s my personal opinion. In a perfect world, Bruno Sammartino would be my #1 choice to head the 2013 WWE HOF class but as we all know the world isn’t perfect.
