Jim Ross Discusses Batista’s Injury, Mick Foley/SI, & More

Jim Ross posted another column HERE. The following are highlights:

On Batista’s Injury:

Hopefully Batista will be able to return sooner than later but WM25 looks totally unrealistic. Is Summerslam more of a realistic return for “The Animal?” There is never a good time to be injured but perhaps this will allow Batista to come back fresher than ever and sometimes absence makes the fan’s hearts grow fonder. The controversial Randy Orton is proof of such.

On Mick Foley vs Sports Illustrated:

My wife asked me who the role model for “The Wrestler” was based on. I don’t know if there is an exact answer but I do know that it is NOT Mick Foley. Sports Illustrated’s adaptation of such is really lame reporting and sensationalistic in nature and belongs in the National Enquirer and not in an allegedly respected weekly that I have subscribed to for years.

On Canadian Fans:

I don’t agree with what has been said about Canada being “Bizarroland” where they cheer for some wrestlers that other fans don’t. Canadian fans simply are a loyal lot who enjoy cheering for their countrymen (and women). Nothing wrong with that and I think that the American TV viewer or any other viewer can easily understand such without too much explanation.
