- Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On Bret Hart's New DVD: The new, @BretHart DVD collection just released this week is exceptional. When a talent sits down and emotionally invests themselves in a project such as a DVD, inevitably the product is that much better. That was certainly the case with the last @steveaustinBSR DVD and same goes for the two DVD presentations that Bret has helped produce. Emotionally investing in one's life, totally, generally equates to positive results. Living in one's comfort zone isn't advisable.
On Andy Leavine : Got an email from a NFL writer/friend where former Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine is preparing to try his hand at pro football again. I wish him the best on such a daunting challenge and getting a free agent deal.
On GSP vs. Nick Diaz: Crazy conference call involving George St. Pierre and Nick Diaz Thursday that I listened to, in part, earlier today. Parts of it were uncomfortable, in my view, but positive for building the rivalry and personal issues that exist between GSP and the volatile but talented Diaz. I expect this fight to be filled with emotion and the choice of the referee for this UFC main event is perhaps more important than usual. Will the fight get dirty? It might. Will both men want to 'finish' the other and not go the five rounds? Absolutely. However, based on what I've seen both men have the conditioning to last five rounds if that's how it goes. Personal issues sell...no matter the genre or arena. Always have and they always will as long as we humans have similar core values and retain our basic, human emotions.
On Monday's Raw: Anxious to see the follow up Monday night in Indy on RAW especially between @CMPunk and The Undertaker notwithstanding Brock Lesnar and @TripleH. Two hugely compelling WM 29 scenarios. Do I expect Lesnar to commit to fighting HHH at WM29? Do I want to sell you some JR's? Hell, yes! This is crunch time for everyone associated with WWE as the Road To WrestleMania separates the wannabe's from the players.
