- Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry online. Check out the highlights:
On todays WWE talent cuts: "Unfortunate news coming out of WWE today regarding many talents being released. This was always the hardest part of my old job back in the day in WWE but it unfortunately comes with the territory. My theory was to make it as quick and painless for the talents that were being released as possible. One has to remember that this not only affects the individual but their families, friends and fans as well. I'm sure that many of those released will stay busy on the indy circuit, autograph functions, etc if they choose to travel that road. Hopefully, WWE is going to make it as easy as possible for these released talents to quickly and seamlessly move on to other opportunities that may be available now but might not be in a few weeks."
On his appearance on Steve Austin's Podcast: "I'm doing a guest shot on today's @steveaustinBSR show on podcastone.com and Steve and talk many things wresting and non-wrestling including the heel manager genius that was Gary Hart. The 'Playboy' was an evil genius to say the least who embraced legit heat where many of his peers back in the day and certainly many more today would crawl naked through broken glass to avoid. Steve and I also talked about teaming up on some shows together that would feature VIP meet and greets and a Slobber Knocker, Stone Cold Stunner of Q&A's. This is going to happen but likely not until 2015. Steve's got plenty of projects pending and I'm not working on the weekends during @Oklahoma_Football season."
