WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with his latest blog. Here are some highlights:
Brock Lesnar’s rocky relationship with WWE: “Lesnar and WWE may be a marriage made in Hell but it’s a relationship that I, as a fan, want to follow. When we signed Brock back in the day we knew tht he was going to be a handful and he was. However, athletic freaks like him don’t grow on trees and, like many coaches, etc, we put in the time necessary to keep Brock headed in the right direction as best that we could. He’s stubborn, anti social, uber talented, and volatile. Time will tell where Lesnar’s latest foray into WWE life takes him but as for me, I’m staying tuned.”
Undertaker’s opponent at WrestleMania 29: “Just as I can’t predict the weather on April 7, 2013 I cannot predict Taker’s potential opponent on that event. Several would love to notch their gun and make the Deadman 20-1. I still believe that ‘The Streak’ is alive & well until told otherwise.”
His favorite broadcast partner: “Besides the King, my favorite broadcast partner, when looking at antagonists, is Paul Heyman. He knew what buttons to push to get me to raise my game. I never played the role of an announcer and was always just myself, for better or for worse. Being real.
“Bobby Heenan was an amazing partner too but ‘The Brain’ was more funny than a villain. I’ve said it before, Bobby Heenan may well be the most talented, all around performer in the history of the wrestling business.”
