Hello from Miami. Hope everyone is well. It's grilling season so let's get to cookin'.
Very sore today. Broken right hand is hurting. Iced it before going to bed to reduce swelling. Certainly not using the hand as an excuse for losing because I pretty much forgot about it once the 'match' started. Bowling shoe ugly bout w/o question. Did the best we could w/ 2 non wrestlers in a tag match.
Thought Extreme Rules overall was really solid. Lots of hard work by many. Tampa crowd was good. I personally appreciate everyone's support.
Except to hear Cole crowing on Raw. Ugh.
Sorry to see Michelle McCool leave WWE. She's an example of what intelligently approaching ones craft will do for you. Michelle evolved into a skilled performer via hard work. Perhaps I'll see her when her alma mater, Florida State University, hosts Oklahoma in college football this September. Michelle is a gifted athlete and will be missed.
Really happy for Christian's success in winning World Heavyweight Title. Christian was 'due' and is one of the more underrated performers in WWE and has been for a good while.
Don't miss Tough Enough tonite w/ @steveaustinBSR. The show is doing well and seems to be setting up for a second season one can assume.
Didn't see Chris Jericho in Tampa and was hoping to if for nothing more than to say hello. @IAmJericho has been really busy w/ DWTS, etc and deserves a time out w/o question.
Our Country Whipping tag bout will never be confused w/ a Bayfront Arena classic pitting Jack Brisco vs. Dory Funk, Jr but the same can be said for many wrestling bouts. I get a kick out of reading the wrestling media reviews of our trainwreck of a 'match' at Extreme Rules. It seems like some had higher albeit unrelistic expectations for the outing that did I.
My friend Sean Grande, the voice of the Boston Celtics, is planning on attending Raw tonite as the Celts are in town taking on the Miami Heat down here in south Florida and have an off night.
Great effort in the WWE Title bout inside an unyeilding steel cage. Cena's brute strength always amazes me while I thought that both Miz and Morrison both elevated their respective games big time in that PPV bout. Key now is for both Morrison and Miz to keep it rolling and I feel that they will. Congrats to John Cena as he continues to build his WWE Hall of Fame body of work. Trust me, three men inside a steel cage is a tough piece of business to transact.
R Truth has begun to distinguish himself and had an impactful cameo at Extreme Rules. Again, the key issue here is for Truth to contiune to take advantage of the moment. The door is open, so to speak, and hopefully Truth will walk through it to the next level. An interesting story to follow.
Remember, if you live outside the USA and want to order JR's products the only way to do so is via http://www.wweshop.com. Their business w/ our brand has been growing weekly.
Enjoyed Kharma's debut at Extreme Rules. She can potentially be a huge attraction for WWE. She's different and special. Curious to see where she goes from here. I personally expect great things from her.

The Rock's 39th birthday celebration on Monday Night Raw tonight should be special. Lots of 'surprises' are planned I hear thru the grapevine. Rock always adds an extraordinary level of energy to any broadcast and tonight, w/ it being his B-Day, should be no exception. I expect the unexpected.
Bin Laden is dead. Good. Bastard is residing in Hell, that is if Satan will have the mass murderer, where the evil terrorist belongs. I vividly recall September 11 and being in Texas for MNR and the Tuesday Smackdown taping. SD was postponed on the day of 9/11 and we went live on Thursday night from Houston in what I think was the first major, public assembly of citizens in our country after the tragedy. I wasn't doing SD at that time but I did it that week on the live show. It was one of the most memorable broadcasts of my career and I don't remember one, single match we featured. I do remember Lilian Garcia's AMAZING performance in singing the National Anthem.
Thanks to all that support our efforts to grow our business here on the site and this is the PERFECT time of the year to give us a try if you haven't.
We appreciate you all and hope that you will enjoy Tough Enough and Raw tonight.
