Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
My sincere thanks to all the folks at WWE and the WWE fans for my special evening this past Monday in OKC. The post RAW activities, which can be seen on wwe.com, exceeded my wildest expectations.
WWE bringing in Dan Hodge and Cowboy Bill Watts, my mentor who flew in from Florida, was a wonderful surprise.
The videos from @JerryLawler and OU Football coach Bob Stoops were tremendous and greatly appreciated.
I was deeply touched by the remarks made by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and HHH.
I have to tell you that the award that WWE presented me was the nicest thing that I’ve ever been bestowed including my 2007 WWE Hall of Fame ring. The “Voice of WWE’ engraving brought me to tears I’m not ashamed to say.
The segment that @CMPunk and I were involved in, of course along with the irrepressible @HeymanHustle Paul Heyman, was the highest rated quarter hour of the three hour broadcast which is a tribute to the WWE Champion and his evil sidekick.
My custom made hat took a beating but nothing that some expert steaming and reshaping won’t cure. So..my hat got its feelings hurt but it will recover as we all know that one cannot grieve forever. (Thanks, King.)
