Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following are selected highlights:

Ross on Steve Austin: “For those of you that are interested and in the spirit of perpetrating more rumors, Stone Cold is reportedly in awesome, physical condition as he prepares for his film role which will apparently be physically demanding. No, this doesn’t mean that Austin is returning to the ring any time soon. Or does it??”

Ross on Manu: “Manu speaks….the son of WWE HOF’er Afa the Wild Samoan mentioned that he was a college man on his first promo as best I recall which might clear up the confusion as to the differences in the persona’s of Manu and Umaga. I really liked Manu’s ring attire the Raw after Manu’s PPV debut. Manu was a highly recruited defensive lineman coming out of high school and was courted by most teams in the Big East among others.”

Ross on another wave of next generation wrestlers: “Speaking of second, make that 3rd generation wrestlers, it looks as if both sons of Mike Rotundo and the grandsons of Blackjack Mulligan will sign with the WWE as the younger Taylor has apparently inked a developmental deal while Wyndham is playing football at Troy University starting at center in the O-Line. Some younger fans don’t remember or know just how good a two sport athlete Mike “IRS” Rotundo was at Syracuse. Mike was a defensive lineman and a heavyweight wrestler which made Rotundo one of the best, two sport athletes to ever compete at Syracuse.
