Cold but busy day in Norman, Oklahoma home of the Sugar Bowl Champions Oklahoma Sooners. Big recruiting week for OU as we start to count down the days for our first ever North American RINGSIDE: An Evening w/ Jim Ross shows to be held at the Gramercy Theater in New York City on Saturday march 1. at 4 pm and 8 pm. Tickets still available at ticketmaster.com.
There are still a limited number of VIP Meet and Greet tickets available for my upcoming shows in both NYC on Saturday march 1 and in New Orleans on Thursday April 3. NOLA is during WM30 week at the House of Blues with two shows at 6:30 and 9:30 pm. Ticketmaster.com has tickets for both cities and tickets are also available at the respective box offices.
I think the folks that attend will love the No Holds Barred Q&A's of the show and I always enjoy meeting fans in the VIP meet and greet portion of the show.
Gearing up to have Steve Austin as my first Ross Report @PodcastOne guest that will drop to the world on Wednesday February 19. We plan on hitting the ground running! Slobber Knocker time and best of all the Ross Report will be FREE at PodcastOne.com and on ITunes. Looking at a variety of ways to make the shows fan friendly and interactive.
I'm pleased that I'm not in #Sochi. Enough said.
Admire the quick manner that @UFC and @DanaWhite handled the Thiago Silva matter. Sounds as if Silva is in need of professional help.
Congrats to friends Adam Copeland and his lady Beth on the birth of their baby daughter. I knew of this info a couple of weeks ago but sat on it until the proud Mom and Dad were ready to announce it. Everyone is healthy and happy as another happy citizen resides in Asheville, North Carolina.
The speculation of what will or won't be booked at WM30 is running rampant. I'm pleased that I have no dog in the fight and am more than willing to see how the card shakes out beyond the Elimination Chamber. I have a feeling that the final WM30 might not resemble what many folks think that it will be. I have actually been enjoying following WWE more now than I'm simply a fan who refuses to read spoilers or most other 'leaks' from the inside.
Wonder how Aleksandr Karelin, "The Experiment" is doing these days? Arguably the most freakish, heavyweight amateur wrestler of all time.
Q&A's are updated here on the site. Deleted the questions that over analyzed the WWE Network of which I am looking forward to and excited about. It will introduce many of us old timer's work to a new collection of fans. I see that as a win-win. Love that I can access content when and where I want.
I've heard nothing new on the CM Punk front. I've not reached to one of my all time favorite wrestles out in respect for his privacy. Let's not over analyze this matter too. Punk's burned out, he's worn out and he's not likely to return any time soon. However, I'd be remiss to speculate that he's 'done' with the business for good.
So...it's going to be interesting to see who steps up and wants to earn Punk's 'spot.'
Who's got the courage and confidence to demand that prime, TV time and spotlight? This matter has much more to do with individual talent's attitude than one might think. The WWE can't simply wave a magic wand and create a star.
Working on a cool, Black History Month piece for FoxSports.com.
We're getting an amazing response on the @RobSchamberger artwork offer at http://www.wweshop.com. There are four packages priced at under $10 that include JR's products and an authentically signed piece of artwork which is a $20 value that's FREE with the order. Super gift ideas to say the least. Our best offer in recent memory and I hope that you check it out. All the JR';s autographs are totally legit.
If you live in Oklahoma or travel I-35 just south of OKC, you can save big time on JR's products at the four, Norman Homeland Stores and at the three Country Mart stores in Lawton. Plus, J. Botie's convenience store at 36th and Main in Norman has JR's Beef Jerky.
Keep our RINGSIDE shows in mind as they will be here before you know it and I'd love to see you there. http://www.ticketmaster.com has all the info.
You have a personal invitation to follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ.
