jim rossWWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog entry on his website, Jrsbarbq.com. Below, he talks about Stone Cold back in a WWE ring, 

On rumors of Austin training for a return:

“Talked with Steve Austin, whose podcasts on @PodcastOne are killing it, on Monday night and was kidding him about him ‘training for a comeback,’ which most fans thought meant Steve was returning to the ring, and, subsequently, ‘taking a bigger role within WWE in 2015.’ I jokingly asked Austin that if he was going to be taking a bigger role if he could get a brother some work because a man’s got to eat!” 

“Bottom line is that Steve was talking to a man who used to train with ‘Arnold’ back in the day at the Gold’s Gym in Venice and Steve said he was training to prepare to return to Gold’s Gym to train. They were talking about training, not wrestling, and how working out at Gold’s in Venice wasn’t for everyone. When the fans heard Austin say that he was “training for a comeback” they assumed that he meant to the ring which in turn means WrestleMania 31.”

“Austin would never return to the ring to go through the motions and he would likely need a solid four months of in ring work/training to be in the condition that he would demand of himself to headline a major event like WrestleMania. If I were WWE, I’d more likely look at WM32 in Dallas and begin discussing that sooner than later for the Texas Rattlesnake. That’s merely my personal opinion but selling 100,000 tickets in his home state might interest Steve the most if the money, the opponent and the creative were all on point.”

On Dean Ambrose from Raw:

“Ambrose, as it relates to the regular’s, stole the show but the surprising return/cameo of The Rock stole the show. It was well known that Rock was going to be in NYC today and it did not shock me that he made the RAW appearance because he genuinely loves performing in front of a live audience.”
