JR’s Blog: Randy Orton’s Return, Kurt Angle/MMA, Trish’s New Show

Jim Ross recently updated his blog over at JrsBarbq.com. Below are some highlights including Ross revealing that Trish Stratus’ new TV show can be seen on the internet for those not living in Canada.

Ross on Randy Orton: “I don’t know when Orton will actually be back in the ring but I have heard it could be in approximately two months. It won’t come none too soon. Injuries are a part of the fabric of the business and always have been. I’ve always believed that when someone goes down it creates an opportunity for others who have been waiting for their chance to strike pay dirt.”

Ross on rumors of Kurt Angle getting involved in MMA: “Reading this stuff is more painful than Kurt’s ankle lock and I don’t see Kurt ever migrating to the main stage of MMA, the UFC. If the talented, former Olympic Gold Medalist had gone that direction instead of coming to the WWE back in the day, I could easily buy it but not today. Too much time has passed, too many injuries have occurred and, to me, that ship has sailed. No one asked me my opinion on this matter nor will they or should they but if asked I would suggest to Kurt to stick with pro wrestling and do all he can to maintain good health.”

Ross on Trish Stratus: “I can still remember the day a few years ago that Trish Stratus walked into my office on the 4th floor of the WWE headquarters in lovely Stamford, Connecticut to meet with me about a job in the company. Any one with sight could see that Trish had an amazingly marketable look (she still does for that matter) but what stuck with me the most upon reflecting back on that first meeting was her positive attitude and her overwhelming desire to be successful. No Diva that I have ever been around in the WWE ever worked harder at getting better in the ring than Trish Status.”
