JR Blog: HBK/Hart DVD, Lawler’s Status, Changes In Wrestling


The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross:

JR on what changes he would make in pro wrestling: "What's the one thing that I would do if I could institute any change in the business? It is and always will be adding more developmental areas so more world class/ highly recruited athletes can train and be given the opportunity to make the primary roster and contribute sooner than later. It would also make sense to have a positive working relationship with all the smaller wrestling promotions that are fighting to survive and crave out their niche. Virtually every talent in a smaller promotion wants to advance to WWE where they can maximize their opportunities to earn better money in a career that generally has a short shelf life."

JR on Jerry Lawler's status: "So many have asked about Jerry Lawler's physical condition. King will likely return to the announce table on Sunday at Hell in a Cell. I plan on seeing him on Monday in Lafayette for Raw if things go as they are currently planned. Or I might just show up in New Orleans."

JR on the Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels DVD: "The Hitman-HBK DVD will be available later this month for those that have missed that info and have asked. I am anxious to read the 'net's reviews of what I perceive to be one of the best productions that WWE has ever done. The sitdown, face to face interview between the two long time rivals is compelling stuff. Anxious to hear fan's feedback too. Good or bad."
