Jim Ross is back with another blog on jrsbarbq.com. Some of the highlights:
– Congrats to Torrie Wilson for finishing runner up on NBC’s “I’m a Celebrity…Get me out of here! Torrie held her own by being smart and staying off the radar to a large degree notwithstanding the votes of the fans. Torrie is dating former Spirit Squad member Nick Mitchell who defines the term of out kicking is coverage.
– The King and I are making a somewhat harmless appearance in Chicago on September 6 and some “scribes” are making a huge deal out of it and not in a positive way. I don’t get that quite frankly. We both enjoy meeting fans of the genre plus I like watching new talent wrestle as the next new “big thing” might be wrestling that night. It is the night before the September 7 Raw in Chicago of which I assume we will be taping a SD Superstars bout so I had to be in town anyway. If any wrestling websites are making a big deal of this matter then it really has been a slow, news week.
– “The Bash” is drawing near and has more matches on it than I would have guessed. One has to assume that the Three Stages of Hell match for the WWE Title will close the show. That’s where I would put it. HHH has won the two Three Stages of Hell bouts that I have seen in the past by defeating Stone Cold and HBK in the early 2000’s. It would surprise me if HHH doesn’t win his 14th Title at The Bash which puts him just two behind the number normally used when talking about Ric Flair’s title reigns.
– Good to see that the WWE produced Randy Savage DVD debuted at #1 and even moved ahead of WM25 on the DVD charts. It will be even more interesting to see how long the Savage compilation of bouts will remain at #1 or near the top.
