J.R.'s blog

What a week coming up! Will head to Charlotte for the NWA Legends Fan Fest and will do our RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross Show there on Thursday night at the Hilton University Place at 9 pm right after the debut of the outstanding film, Mid Atlantic Memories of which I narrated.  Check out www.nwalegends.com for all the info. Also, this week, Wednesday to be exact, tickets go on sale for RINGSIDE Shows in Knoxville, Thursday Sept 10, and Houston, Sunday September 20.

Finally got our dates firmed up for RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross Shows on Friday September 11 in Knoxville at the International, the night before the OU-Tennessee college football game, and on Sunday afternoon at 4 pm September 20 in Houston at the Warehouse Live Ballroom which is a short walk from the Toyota Center where WWE will host Night of Champions later that night.

Having some technical problems here today so I'm going to rewrite and post my blog. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Great buzz created by the old school, pull a part Monday night on RAW  between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker coming off the heels of Taker costing Lesnar the WWE World Title Sunday night at WWE Battleground when the Deadman made a surprising return to the ring.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Thanks for all the well wishes after my Tuesday surgery. I'm feeling great and getting better daily. Expect to be at 100% when I travel to Charlotte later this month for the NWA Legends Fan Fest at the University Hilton. For info and tickets, the $99 VIP All Access pass is the way to go, visit www.nwalegends.com.

It's great to be back in steamy, Oklahoma after a whirlwind weekend that saw me on 7 planes, in 5 states, a 200+ mile car trip but enjoying a rewarding trip to the @wrestlingmuseum in Waterloo, Iowa for their annual event which was another success. If you are a wrestling fan of any ilk you must visit the Dan Gable Museum in Waterloo, Iowa at some point in your life. I think they very muc for their support of Headlock on Hunger, www.headlockonhunger.org, which many of us are devoted much needed time.

Greetings everyone! Just to set the record straight, our RINGSIDE w/ Jim Ross Show in New York City on Saturday August 22 will go on as scheduled starting at 8 pm at the Gramercy Theatre with the VIP Meet/Greet/Photo Ops from 6pm-8pm. About 40 VIP tickets remain at www.ticketmaster.com and the box office. General Admission Tickets start at only $25. We realize that there is competition that night against us but we are staying with our plan and hope that our fans will support us.

Greetings from Oklahoma on what is shaping up to be amazingly busy week for a guy who's supposed to be slowing down but who's loving every day above ground. Excited for you to hear part two of my conversation with Professor Mke Tenay tonight at 9 ET on podcastone.com, iTunes and right here the homepage of our website. We had record numbers last week for part one and I am hopeful that we have even more this week on the Ross Report Podcast.

For those cerebrating the 4th of July holiday I want to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th and hope that you enjoy it with friends and family....and your grill.

Some odds and ends...

Q&A's are updated elsewhere here on the site.
