Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JrsBarBq.com. Below are some excerpts:

-Ross on rumors of brand changes for the WWE announcers: “Lots of announcer speculation re: moving brands, etc but that would be news to me. Wrestling, like many entities, can be over analyzed. In my view the WWE has bigger fish to fry (creating new stars) than playing musical chairs with the announcers. But at the end of the day only one man knows for sure what he wants for his company. Iâ<80><99>ve learned that predicting those matters can not be in my best interests.”

-Ross on Shawn Michaels retiring: “Flew with HBK from DFW to Tampa Sunday night. For my (money) Shawn is still the best ‘big match’ wrestler in the biz but one can see the fatigue in his eyes. Strictly guessing, if I was forced to say when HBK would hang â<80>~em up I would ‘guess’ sometime around WM 26. Hope Iâ<80><99>m wrong.”

-Ross on Undertaker’s submission hold: “The Undertakerâ<80><99>s new submission is now officially known as the ‘Devilâ<80><99>s Triangle.’ You heard it here first.”
