– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:
Bret Hart as RAW GM: “Answered a question that I was surprised to see Bret Hart named Raw G.M. simply because I know Hitman has many interests and traveling to Raw each week is a three day piece of business. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than pleased with the selection and anxious to know more about the back story of the appointment . Plus, Bret adds needed star power to the flagship broadcast of which there’s never too much.”
JBL Update: “No…to an emailer who asked if I expected to see JBL back in the ring at some point. I think that limo has driven off into the sunset and is properly funded to boot. Could John make a guest appearance/cameo in a non wrestling role some day in WWE? I assume that he could and I would invest in that happening before he would ever don the tights again. I plan on seeing JBL on my next ‘book trip’ to New York City.”
Batista Training For MMA: “I’ve heard some rumblings that when Batista gets healthy that he might try his hand in the MMA world. This rumor is FAR from official but I do know that Batista has been doing some MMA training and has a bona fide interest in the genre. This would be a huge challenge for Batista if he indeed attempts to compete in MMA at a high level which, again, is not a done deal.
