Jim Ross Speaks on a Top Star Possibly Missing Raw

Nick Paglino

The following is from Jim Ross’ blog at JrsBarBQ.com:

JR on Batista possibly missing Raw: “After being punted in the head ala Ray Guy (Google it, kids), I would suggest that it is doubtful that Batista will be able to be a part of Monday Night Raw this week but that’s an assumption and we all know what happens when one assumes.”

JR on Trish Stratus at Raw: “I would say my chances of seeing one of my all time favorite hires, Trish Stratus, in TO is better than 50/50 but that doesn’t necessarily mean she will appear on TV. If she does, it likely will be on Raw and it would seem that if she is available that a cameo by the multiple time, former champion would be a good thing. However, understand that I have no idea what is in store for the TV shows on Monday and that me visiting with Trish is largely my wishful thinking. Is that so wrong??”

JR on Bret Hart: “I got a great message from Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart a few hours ago and he said he was getting better every day after having knee replacement surgery. I challenged Bret to a foot race while he is healing but he wants to “race me around the block” once he is better. At that point I think the foot race offer will be off the table. I would love to take a camera crew to Bret’s place in Hawaii and sit with Bret and do the ultimate DVD interview complete with his thoughts on many of his favorite matches that he participated in and that he observed. Playing word association with Bret on virtually dozens of wrestling’s biggest names would be fun.”
