Jim Ross is back with another blog on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
– Actor Jeremy Piven will guest host Raw Monday night from the sold out Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Ct on what could be an unique night as it relates to Mr. Piven. The Entourage star and the star of an upcoming film that actually looks very funny is reportedly somewhat attitudinal. I only know what I read and I am not claiming that Piven is a tool, for the record. Nonetheless, as I wrote earlier, I hope that Piven is exactly like his character Ari Gold on the HBO’s Entourage and “runs rough shod” on Monday night. In the old days many of the veterans would have clamored to see who could play the biggest rib on Piven or any other “celebrity” who came into the locker room area and acted any thing less than respectful to the biz.
– Helluva match Friday night on Smackdown between World’s Champ Jeff Hardy and John Morrison. I watched this match as it aired and then again right afterwords on DVR and I rarely do that. Really innovative stuff, the guys took their time and had the time, the in ring action was compelling, and we had a winner and a loser. Wow.
– The SD crew should be commended for their efforts on Friday night’s show as it was a really solid team effort from start to finish and overall a fun show of which to be a part.
