JR's Blog: Wednesday Blog...WWE..NFL..BBQ..Talent Development...More Off Beat Topics
Hot, sunny day in Norman, Oklahoma. Lots of VERY random thoughts...not all wrestling.
If fans want to sample Mid South Wrestling visit http://www.universalwrestling.com. Old school and extreme before the term became cool.
Slobber Knocker is an old football term denoting a ferocious hit.
Detroit Lions fans ask about firmer Sooner Ryan Broyles. Class kid, tough, great receiver/ return man and a winner. Sleeper of the draft.
Amazed how many fans checking out NetFlix and watching Rivalries:Bret vs Shawm. Must see as is the Stone Cold documentary.
Someone said that young JR looked like John Goodman on 'Flintstones.'
Love reading @jclayfield tweets. Funny as hell.
Fav @Sting match? First Clash of Champions vs Flair. Now on new, WWE DVD. Get it!
Bathroom breaks during PPV's? Never happened, luckily, for me but was 1st stop after every PPV. That's why I usually wore dark pants...just in case.
Yes WWEShop ships to UK & Canada..http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss.
What ever happened to the ballyhooed Texas Network?
Enjoying writing about my broadcast partners at WWE.com at their classics section.
Most underrated wrestling faction? Arguably, the Dangerous Alliance. Loaded w/ talent.
Will @ HeymanHustle return to more WWE appearances? I don't know but did you ever try to get rid of a virus?
Can @okcthunder win the NBA title? Yes....but not w/o Kendrick Perkins.
San Antonio looks good in west. Pulling for Celtics in east...
@seangrandePBP. Pulling for Steelers to win the Super Bowl but Patriots look reloaded.
Could a WrestleMania be held in a new, Minnesota Vikings stadium some day? Sure. Why not?
Keep an eye on Antonio Cesaro who will compete Friday night on Smackdown. Potential impact player.
Any list of promo guys when talking blood, guts & thunder has to include Dusty Rhodes and Ric Flair. No?
Education, intelligence and natural athleticism are three elements that are closely evaluated when looking at potential WWE performers. I still believe 'IT'cannot be taught but can be cultivated/enhanced.
I'm doing a weekly radio hit on http://sportstalk1400.com Wednesday's at 12:30 pm central time.
Really enjoying WWE's relationship with You Tube.
The King is happy w/ his Browns NFL Draft. Cleveland got themselves a running back, a QB, and an offensive tackle.
Do we make a dry rub? Yes! It's called JR'S All Purpose Seasoning and it's awesome. Guaranteed.
I'm hooked on Propel Zero.
Before you start grilling this season may I suggest an extensive cleaning of your grill. Thank me later.
Anyone else hooked on @swamppeople?
Excited for @steveaustinBSR upcoming reality show on CMT. Steve's great w/o a script. Instincts.
I mixed JR'S HOT BBQ Sauce w/ our Main Event Mustard and kicked up a Carolina styled sauce. Worked super on chicken . Fish, too.
Best masked team ever? For me, the Assassins.
Excited for what I perceive will be a big week in Florida next week. I'm loving working in WWE Development.
Follow me on Twitter @JRsBBQ. 425,000 strong and growing.
Are overly stupid comments made by some NBA players a result of players coming into the league too young or is it merely a generational thing & social media trend? IE Lakers Andrew Bynum.
Will the utilization of more submission finishers become more prolific in WWE? Stay tuned.
If my friend Adrian Peterson is now running at 60% that means he's better than 7 out of 10 NFL running back.
Been watching some big time European football lately. Love the crowds. Intriguing game. Don't have a favorite team.
Biggest things that young wrestlers need to focus upon....just my personal two cents..know who you are, be aggressive, slow down a touch, and be the kind of human that you'd want to have working for your company.
