J.R.'s blog

Another busy week for yours truly before heading next week to Waterloo, Iowa to the Dan Gable Museum/Lou Thesz-George Tragos annual HOF weekend on July 10-11. Next week is a couple of days of production for the documentary film 'Mid Atlantic Memories' which will premier on Thursday July 30 on night one of the annual NWA Legends Fan Fest in Charlotte, North Carolina. For more info visit www.nwalegends.com.

Entrenched in some busy times and looking forward to a slower July. Had a great time this weekend In Providence with the New England Fan Fest team who treated me and their fans wonderfully. Great organization and a totally professional presentation. I hope that I can return some day.

Preparing to head to Providence, Rhode Island for the 5th New England Fan Fest this Friday night and Saturday. It's a huge, all star cast of talent that you won't want to miss and tickets are still available on a limited basis and for more info hit www.newenglandfanfest.com. I'm looking forward to it a great deal. Hope to see you there. JR's products will be on sale with no shipping or handling charges so come ready to stock up and save money.

Good to be back home after a successful three event tour in London and Manchester, England. My thanks to PSI Events and their great staff plus all the fans that came to see us as every function I was involved in was completely sold out which always makes one feel great. It's great to know that one hasn't been forgotten. My first show ever with Shawn Michaels was Monday night in Manchester and it was a sell out at the Manchester Comedy Store which seats over 500 in one of the most famous venues in England.

New, Ross Report podcast drops tonight (Tuesday) at 9 pm ET/6 Pacific on podcastone.com, iTunes and here on the site's homepage. My guest is the outspoken @BryanAlvarez of the Wrestling Observer and the most ubiquitous man on wrestling radio who has plenty to say about WWE MITB, Impact Wrestling (WOW does he!), ROH, UFC and much more including the late, Dusty Rhodes. It's a super sized show that you will enjoy. Plus, I'm a guest on the Steve Austin Podcast that is available now as we reminisce about "The Dream." Steve's podcast is available at the same locations as is mine.

Thanks for stopping by our site. Busy week recording a Ross Report podcast tonight (Monday) with the Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez for the first time and we will discuss WWE MITB, ROH, TNA, UFC, and more on a new show that drops Tuesday night at 9 ET on podcastone.com and iTunes along with being here on the home page of this site. Excited to be in England in a few days with appearances Saturday and Sunday at the London Wrestlecon and Monday in Manchester with @ShawnMichaels at the Comedy Store.

Helluva week to say the least. Losing Dusty...working on Headlock on Hunger, www.headlockonhunger.net, seeing JR's products in the Asheville, NC @InglesAdvantage Markets getting ready to record a post MITB podcast with @BryanAlvarez Monday night and preparing to head to England for two great days, June 20-21, at the London Wrestlecon and Monday June 22 at the Manchester Comedy Store with Shawn Michaels. This retirement thing isn't what I thought it might be.

Thursday wasn't a good day. We lost a pop culture icon, a pro wrestling innovator and I lost a great friend.  The Dream is dead.

As I was sitting in an office in Asheville, NC at Eblen Charities being interviewed by WWE for the upcoming Owen Hart DVD  and discussing what May 23, 1999 meant to me my cell phone buzzed incessantly. It wouldn't stop and interrupted our recording. 

Looking forward to being in the Asheville, N.C. area next week to work with Headlock on Hunger on a massive, food drive and to usher in our JR's products into @InglesAdvantage aka Ingles Markets. I'll be at various Ingles stores Wednesday-Friday and I hope to see many of you there. Ingles has over 200 stores and we ae excited about JR's products finding their way to all of them.
