Latest Jim Ross Thoughts from his Blog

Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry, giving his Raw Thoughts, Some highlights from this entry:

- Chris Jericho continues to star w/ a mic in his hand. I don’t know where this Legend’s based issue is heading but I am more than interested in it thanks to Winnipeg’s talented Jericho. Who will Y2J offend next week?

- The HHH-Orton segment was money. Plain and simple...this piece of business sold PPV’s. Personal issues have always been the foundation of wrestling and this matter is the most personal issue in WWE in years. The challenge will be to build from Monday night but that is certainly doable. This issue also helps HHH’s Friday Night Smackdown broadcast of which I have a vested interest.

- Loved the Bill Watts HOF feature which did a great job of introducing Bill to a generation of fans who might not have been familiar with the Big Cowboy. Watts was a main event star in every major American, wrestling territory in the 60’s & 70’s. Watts learned from the masters of the biz and the Dean’s List student at Oklahoma then put together an amazing resume as a promoter and producer of great, episodic TV. Bill also had a great eye for talent and was a legendary taskmaster who always demanded great effort from everyone who worked for him. I know that I would have never have achieved what ever good fortune has come my way in the business without Cowboy’s learning tree. I look forward to inducting Bill in the WWE HOF on April 4. I hope to make it succinct and entertaining.

- With the weather being an issue Monday in Boston, Jerry Lawler had to fly Monday from snowy Memphis to NYC's LaGuardia and then take a 3 hour plus train ride to Boston. I spoke with King while he was on his first train ride ever, Monday afternoon. It was quite the travel adventure but the HOF'er did not seem to miss a beat Monday night.
