JR Blog: Del Rio’s Win, Foley Going Into WWE’s HOF, More
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights:
- Very excited to be heading to Houston later this weekend for the 20th Anniversary of Monday Night Raw that will be held in Houston which is a sold out event.
- According to the New York Post, Mick Foley is going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday night April 6 in Madison Square Garden. Being the natural word smith that he is, I’m betting that Mick will steal the show at the speaker’s podium. I’ve heard Mick’s stand up comedy act and he’s as entertaining on stage as he was becoming the “Hardcore Legend.”
- Anxious to see what form that @TheRock and @CMPunk engage one another this Monday in Houston on Raw as they continue to build to what seems to be a potentially lucrative Royal Rumble in Phoenix. The challenge of all great talents, and the truly great one’s relish this, is to top what they did last week. Some individuals are born to be main event talents because they love the pressure to excel and to get better with each outing. Some talented guys over the years and likely even on today’s WWE roster might not be wired to handle the pressure of being “the top guy.”
- Really enjoyed the latest edition of Friday Night Smackdown with Alberto Del Rio @VivaDelRio winning the World Title from the Big Show. Of course, the addition of Rock and CM Punk along with Paul Heyman @HeymanHustle did not hurt a thing either. Seemed like @JCLayfield and @WWEJoshMathews were on their game as well. One thing about JBL, if one isn’t ready to bring their ‘A’ Game one will be exposed quickly.
