Jim Ross is back with another blog update at jrsbarbq.com. Below are some of the highlights:
– Yours truly will be leaving town on Friday to head south to Waco, Texas to attend the Oklahoma-Baylor college football game on Saturday slated for an 11:30 a.m. kickoff on Fox Sports. If you see a black hat wandering the Sooner sideline you’ll know I made it.
– After the game, I will immediately head back to Dallas to catch an early evening flight to Portland for Sunday’s No Mercy PPV. Tazz and I have two bouts to broadcast Sunday in the Rose Garden which is one more than ECW’s Todd Grisham and Matt Striker.
– I’m pulling for Ken Shamrock on Saturday night on CBS against hard hitting Kimbo Slice but Kenny’s best chance of winning is to take Kimbo down quickly and avoid Slice’s bombs. Shamrock taking too many hard shots really concerns me and to think that this might be the fight that ends Ken Shamrock’s storied career isn’t the way I would have preferred to see Ken exit a sport he helped pioneer. Sadly, if Shamrock does win another promoter will convince Ken to fight “one more time” for another payday no matter the collateral damage the fight may inflict on “The World’s Most Dangerous Man.”
– I saw a trailer for the Andre the Giant movie and it was, well, not good. This movie can’t be released but it may escape. Most wrestlers can’t act but these actors couldn’t act.
