We hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day and want to thank all the members of the Armed Forces for all you do for us each and every day as you are our most respected citizens, Thanks for all that sacrifices that you make that allows all of us the many freedoms and the quality of life that we enjoy.
BTW...we are shipping more and more to military folks as the USPS delivers to our service men and women's military addresses. I know many Moms and Dads are shipping JR's Beef Jerky, which has a one year shelf life and only weighs 1.75 ounces per bag, to their kids who are in the Armed Forces. If any of you have any special requests that we can accommodate, please let us know when you order. A case of Jerky has 48 bags FYI.
This was the first Memorial Day that I wasn't on the road in a long, long time. It felt pretty good actually as we fired up the grill and did some 85/15 burgers (less fat). I made a kicked up burger topping by mixing sweet pickle relish and Chipotle Ketchup and it was amazing. Try it for yourself.
Raw from Austin felt like a 'fresh' show and was a really good effort.
What we didn't see was Michael Cole get introduced before the show went on the air and I'm told he was booed out of the arena. Why, you ask? One reason might have been because he came out to my old, entrance music 'Boomer Sooner' the Oklahoma fight song which doesn't play well in the home of the Texas Longhorns. Nice practical joke on Cole who later in the show had an entertaining piece of business with Daniel Bryan and the Miz.
Seems like R Truth is starting to gain momentum. Truth is a little unorthodox offensively which isn't a bad thing and just makes him different. Truth has charisma and it seems if the machine continues to roll with him that the United States Champion will become even more viable in the months to come. Truth beating the amazingly talented Chris Jericho was huge for the new Champion.
The Daniel Bryan vs. Miz match could have lasted longer but I really liked what I saw of it as Miz is becoming a bigger star each week and Bryan's in ring style is unique for Raw. Adding Michael Cole to this equation makes this issue stand out even more. Will we see any more of this matter Tuesday night in Dallas?
The Uso's are going to be really good if they continue to do grow, adjust to life on the road and can stay healthy. The trio has lots of natural talent and athleticism. They match up well with the Hart Dynasty and this personal issue is going to be fun to follow. I like the 3rd generation storyline and am interested to see how it evolves.
It was a great night for Evan Bourne not only interacting with Edge at the beginning of the broadcast but teaming with John Cena in the main event at the end of the broadcast. Bourne's perception improved tonight a great deal and the high flier is a good, solid citizen who is deserving of the opportunity that was presented him tonight.
I thought Ashton Kutcher was a solid 'Host.' It was easy to see that Kutcher is a WWE fan as he seamlessly fit into the broadcast. Stars from outside the world of WWE who are fans make the best 'Hosts' and Kutcher was spot on with his delivery.
We will be answering more of your Q&A's asap so keep them coming.
BTW...Mrs. J.R. and I saw 'Sex and the City 2' Sunday night and my advice for you is to wait until it comes to cable. The gay wedding scene was right out of 'Billy and Chuck' and was one of the comedic highlights of the film of which there weren't enough of for me. The popcorn was good and the seats reclined so all wasn't lost. I did manage to stay awake which was a concern about an hour into the movie.
