Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:
-Madison Square Garden (MSG) has been newly renovated and is, without question, the World’s Most Famous Arena for many reasons. I’ve had many bucket list type professional memories in MSG over the years and working in MSG seemed to always elevate my work. For example, WM20 in the Garden was memorable for many reasons but none more than victories that night by Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit in main event, title bouts.
-I expect some Rock/Cena fireworks at some point Sunday night but have no idea when, where or how that might occur. I also expect Rock/Cena to win vs the Awesome Truth. Potential show stealer Sunday in my view is CM Punk vs. Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Title. Two, prideful men who have the opportunity that they will most certainly embrace and take deadly serious in a professional manner. I’m predicting a @CMPunk WWE title win Sunday BTW. Every wrestler with pride in what they do should want to create their own ‘MSG Moment’ as those live in one’s heart for a lifetime.
-Long time fans know how great the late Killer Karl Kox was inside the ring but if younger fans have not seen Killer perform/compete I’d suggest that you hit You Tube or WWEClassics.com. I will say this, Killer Karl Kox was arguably the most underrated wrestler that I can ever recall. His ring psychology was extraordinary. I refereed many of his bouts with Dick Murdoch and I couldn’t detect any of the show biz elements that are often times so blantantly obvious in today’s marketplace. RIP Killer Karl Kox and thanks for helping me better understand the crazy world of pro wrestling. A true master of his craft.
