Good day everyone and thanks for stopping by our website. Business is picking up at http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss of which we are grateful. Kickoff time...
Eve has evolved into a Jezebel but has more people talking about her than ever. She's still hotter than JR's HOT BBQ Sauce.
Sheamus victory over Mark Henry was bigger than many may have perceived when he pinned World's Strongest Man. If Sheamus doesn't leave WM28 as the new, World Heavyweight Champion, I will be surprised.
The General Manager controversy obviously is interesting to some but I'm not into 'politics.'
The Undertaker confronting HHH and subsequently pushing the approiate buttons to get a vengeance oriented rematch at WM28 was captivating TV for me. Both men have more tenure than any others on the WWE roster that are still competing. They are truly is the last of a breed and now that it's in Helll in a Cell, the game has changed. Stakes have risen and it going to be a tough act to follow in Miami.
For those asking, Rock came to WWE in 1996 and both Taker and HHH were already with the company.
After his stellar performance Sunday night in the Elimination Chamber, Santino losing so quickly to WHC Daniel Bryan shocked me.
John Cena delivered the best promo of his career in my opinion when addressing the Rock and their long awaited WM28 main event. Cena spoke from the heart and I'm certain meant every word that he said. Cena's words stepped away from the world of entertainment and squarely into reality or so it seemed to me.
Rock's 'rebuttal' next week on Raw in Portland will be must see TV. The Rock/Cena issue has gotten personal as Cena touched some legit nerves with his remarks in Minneapolis.
Speaking of Minneapolis, the minority of fans who were verbally disrespectful of Undertaker with annoying "What" chants, etc aren't really wrestling fans. They are insecure, attention starved, defiant individuals seeking recognition. So, they have now been recognized and I'm embarrassed for them.
The injury riddled, #1 contender Battle Royal sees Chris Jericho getting his ticket punched to meet CM Punk for the WWE Title at WM28 in a bout that could be the best, pure wrestling match on the entire card on April 1.
WWE Champ Punk was commentary gold to my ears Monday night on RAW.
All in all, Monday Night Raw added significant emphasis on WM28 and the featured bouts that will be expected to see more tickets and PPV's. After what I perceived as somewhat of a slow start the broadcast seemed to build throughout the 2+ hours and was fun to watch.
Q..."What's the status of Wade Barrett?" WWE.com reported that Barrett suffered a dislocated elbow in the Battle Royal and will be out for 6-8 weeks which would take him out of the WM28 equation or so it would seem. Horrible timing especially when one works all year to earn a spot on the card at the biggest event of the year only to suffer an injury.
Q..."Can WWEShop.com do JR's Beef Jerky Packages of 6-10-20 packs?" They certainly can and I will suggest such. At the end of the day, it's their call on how they formulate and market our products. I do know that business has really been rolling so thanks to all. The Jerky busienss has been especially good as it's a custom made Jerky using eye of round and is 97% Fat Free.
Q..."Will this be Undertaker's last match?" I have no way of knowing nor does any one else. One can logically say that it all depends on how he fares in this sure to be physical bout inside Hell in a Cell vs. HHH. No one, not even the rumor mongers, can predict the future. My educated guess, or hope, is that this isn't Taker's last WM bout.
I recently did say that sooner or later Undertaker's career would come to an end just as any other athlete or performer. This statement isn't a revelation it's merely a fact of life. When that day comes will be a sad day for me as his friend and fan of the man's amazing body of work and the WWE will change forever at that point.
Q..."Who will induct Ron Simmons into the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame?" It hasn't been confirmed as of yet. However, I'd personally love to see JBL, Ron's friend and former tag team partner, do it because John Layfield would be so entertaining and well prepared that he would add to the ceremony.
For the record, Ron Simmons was an athletic freak of nature. Strong, tough, quick, and with a fearless attitude. His #50 is retired at Florida State University where Ron was a three time All American nose tackle spearheading the dominating Seminole defense. Coach Barry Switzer of Oklahoma when preparing to play FSU in two Orange Bowls back in the day said the key to winning was figuring out how to block Ron Simmons. Ironically, Steve "Dr Death" Williams was one of many Sooner offensive linemen assigned to merely attempt to slow down the man who once finished 7th in the Heisman Trophy.
Calling Ron's World Title win in 1992 vs. Vader in Baltimore was one of the bigger thrills of my career. It was the first time an African American become a World Champion on the level that Ron earned with WCW. It was a slice of history and I felt, and still do, honored to have been at ringside. I recently watched this bout on You Tube and it is still special.
Q..."How can I get your sauce in Canada?" Same as UK, Australia, Mexico, USA, etc and that's by going to http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss as our business is ONLINE SALES ONLY AND NOT AVAILABLE IN ANY STORES OUTSIDE NORMAN, OKLAHOMA HOMELAND STORES.
Q..."If I order JR's Products soon can I get them for my Wrestlemania party?" That should be no issue but don't wait as it often times takes a couple of weeks depending on where the shipment is going. Our Orginal Sauce is still our top seller.
Q..."Would you like to call the Undertaker vs. HHH HIAC bout at WM28?" Of course. Any one who works for WWE, as I do, and who doesn't want to contribute at Wrestlemania should be showed the door. If I get the call, I'll be honored to give it my best shot but if not I will enjoy the match like any other die hard fan.
Speaking of WrestleMania, I will be making multiple appearances at WM AXXESS promoting JR's Products at the WWE Merchandise stand at AXXESS. Schedule TBD.
Q..."How will WWE hang the HIAC above the ring in an open air stadium?" They will build a massive structure to not only hold the ring lighting grid but the HIAC as well. It will be impressive I assure you.
Remember that Wednesday night that I will be joining @SeanGrandePBP who's the voice of the Boston Celtics as a guest color analyst when the Celts play @okcthunder that can only be heard on the Boston Celtics Radio Network. If I get online info, I will share here or on Twitter @JRsBBQ.
