Jim Ross has posted a new blog, which can be read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Some highlights from this entry:
Flair Wrestling Again: When will we next see Ric Flair in a WWE ring? Will it be as early as Monday Night? Naitch called me late Friday night and told me he would see me in a few days, whatever that means. It was late and it was Friday night and it was loud where ever Ric was which I assume wasn’t the public library. Flair “wrestling” in WWE still seems unlikely. Ric wrestling outside the USA seems like a gimme.
Kofi vs. MVP: My uninformed guess is that Kofi Kingston might well win a fan favorite bout against MVP Monday night in Birmingham on Raw and become the new United States Champion. My reasoning? MVP had his prom date experience with Sherri Sheppard this weekend which I am speculating will alter Montel’s game on Monday night. MVP & Sherri do make a cute couple and I assume this date will be discussed on ABC’s “The View” at some point.
WWE In Mexico: Huge crowd in Mexico City Saturday night with over 20,000 fans in the arena grossing a whopping $650K at the box office. I wonder how many Rey Mysterio masks were sold on the four day WWE tour of Mexico?
Kennedy’s Future: It is regrettable that WWE decided to release Mr. Kennedy, that ring name will be long gone, as he was at the age to really begin to come into his own. Injuries have plagued the Wisconsin native for a good part of his career but as best I know Kennedy is 100% as we speak. Without question, Kennedy has a definable upside and he will hopefully continue his journey in this biz and make his dreams become realties. Take it from me being released isn’t the end of the world and things in our lives have a way of working out for the best unless one throws in the towel and simply says “what the hell?” As I mentioned before, a change of scenery sometimes is what the doctor ordered. Hopefully this will work out for the best for all involved. For the record, I do not know why Kennedy was released and look at that matter as none of my business.
