- Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry. Here are the highlights…
On Starting a Podcast: I am meeting via conference call later today about producing my own podcast and beginning soon. Seems like the thing to do and I love guesting on them and think I could have a blast interviewing a variety of guests and answering fan's questions as well. That's all to be determined but it looks positive. I will keep you informed here or on Twitter @JRsBBQ where we now have over 990,000 followers.
On His Broadcasting Future: BTW...during the Wrestling Observer interview...I shared why I think I'll never broadcast another pro wrestling match and the slim to none chance that I will ever broadcast UFC or football. However, I will add here that I've beaten the odds before.
On Lesnar vs. Undertaker at WrestleMania 30: It appears that the smart money, or is it, is on Brock Lesnar facing the Undertaker at WM30. That seems to be the strongest sentiment making the rounds online. For the record, I don't know as it's not my hill to die upon these days and I'm merely speculating. On paper, Lesnar vs. The Undertaker is an impressive match IF Lesnar is re-branded/re-energized to the WWE fan base as the indestructible "killer" that he can be. One matter to address is how often will either Taker or Brock appear on Monday Night RAW building up to the encounter to add adequate logs to the promotional fire? It sounds as if Paul Heyman will have to return to be the mouthpiece for Brock as Paul has done in the past, and done it damn well, but having the combatants appear on RAW only sporadically hampers the potential number of PPV buys which one would assume would lessen each man's potential earnings. I underscore the word assume as we all know what occurs when one assumes.
On Bill Watts: Just my two cents but if Bill Watts isn't involved at any Mid South function during WM30 week in New Orleans because he either wasn't asked or it was perceived that he wanted "too much money" then it really isn't a full fledged Mid South reunion show.
