WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
– The Smackdown/ECW locker room dynamic seems to have changed significantly over the past few weeks and especially after the big “trade” of earlier in the week. The vets are doing a good job delivering the steak while the young talents are still searching to find their personas and what it is going to take to make themselves successful.
– Success in wrestling comes through wrestling aggressively and by using logic in the ring. It also, more importantly and especially in the technological age where there is seemingly an abundance of “experts,” doesn’t come quickly. Patience is a virtue but also is a fleeting thing in our impatient, instant gratification oriented society.
– As it relates to Friday Night Smackdown, it seems as if Dolph Ziggler and John Morrison are lining up to be the next talents to move up the ladder. Both are getting more opportunities to shine and are doing a nice job of producing positive results.
– I’m not condoning that anyone drink and drive but it sure seems as if some are making a federal case about Roddy Piper’s recent arrest for an apparent DUI. Again, don’t get me wrong, DUI’s are serious business, but luckily there was no accident associated with this incident and no one was injured. I’m sure that Roddy feels as badly as one could feel about this embarrassing matter but everyone makes mistakes in life. I text Roddy this weekend, before the arrest for the record, and he was in amazingly, positive spirits and we largely discussed family and our health. I have great respect for Roddy Piper and I hope this issue can be resolved quickly and that history won’t be repeating itself. I, too, traveled down this road many years ago and learned a valuable lesson in the process.
