Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.
– Ross on Randy Orton on Raw: “Master Randy Orton slithered into the ring and mouthed an apology but I have to admit I certainly listened to his verbiage closely. Orton is a very compelling character and seems to be the most talked about character on Monday nights based on the reguloar Joe’s I talk to while on the road. I knew that Orton had ‘issues,’ his words not mine, but I never knew the official name for him as most of his peers apparently use the slang for the ailment which has to do with a certain part of the male anatomy.
“Orton is a red hot star on Raw and will no doubt, unless something shocking occurs, play a vital role at he 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania whether some folks ike it or not. Whether or not I personally like Orton or I don’t, I can’t wait to see what he does next week on Raw especially after two members of the McMahon Family have now physically assaulted Mr. RKO who hears voices in his head.”
– Ross on a comment Cole made regarding Mickey Rourke: “Michael Cole said that Golden Globe winning actor Mickey Rourke was a ‘helluva athlete’ which sort of surprised me on two fronts. One, that WWE announcers can say ‘helluva’ and that the rejuvenated actor was an athlete but I do remember his brief boxing career.”
