Jim Ross is back with two new blogs for May 6th over at jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
– Mike Knox debuts Friday night and the younger version of Bruiser Brody, to some of us, had a solid first night. I need to hear Knox talk to get to know his persona better.
– WWE being on The View is smart, strategic marketing. Any time a business can affordably reach a sizeable, new audience it makes sense. Barbara Walters saying positive things about WWE isn’t a bad thing. The video that aired prior to MVP’s “View” cameo was excellent.
– Been reading where Batista “may retire” in a year or so but I’d bet that won’t happen. Unless Batista has saved a boat load of cash I say he stays in WWE and makes more of those big pay days and 7 figure years. Big Dave likes the good life, who doesn’t, but the “good life” isn’t facilitated w/ coupons. Dave’s value to WWE, considering especially the overall lack of main event depth may never be greater. I know I throughly enjoy my paychecks even thought I feel I’m underpaid ( who doesn’t?)and hope to successfully negotiate a new contract w/ WWE when the time comes later in 2009.
– Read a review of the new Jeff Jarrett DVD. I’m sure it’s good but some folk’s recollection of history never ceases to amaze me. Jeff remembers things differently than I but it is his DVD produced by his company about him so he’s certainly not going to make himself look bad. Who would? Lots of water has gone under the bridge since those days and it certainly isn’t a major issue one way or the other and perhaps I’ll tell my side of the negotiations in question some day. I would suggest that all involved might have had dirty hands in that matter but I can assure you that I didn’t break my word in dealing with Double J. My old job back in the day was challenging and every decision wasn’t easy. Such is life. No regrets.
