JR Discusses Scott Hall, Gerald Brisco, More

Jim Ross has a new blog entry available on his official website. Below are some highlights:

-What more can be said about the compelling Scott Hall piece that ESPN E60 did this week on the former WWE/WCW star? Addiction is so deadly and dangerous and why some individuals seemingly can’t get away from alcohol and drug abuse perhaps will always be a mystery. The obligatory emails and Tweets about Scott going into the WWE Hall of Fame or perhaps becoming a broadcaster in WWE feel so untimely as the ONLY thing that Scott should focus on is getting healthy via being clean and sober. I sincerely and truly hope that he succeeds. I will tell those that don’t know that Hall was gifted with a great mind for the wrestling business.

-My dear friend Jerry Brisco had a mild stroke on Wednesday just before he was to fly to Mexico to attend the Pan American games to scout amateur wrestlers for WWE. Luckily Jerry’s son Wes was driving his Dad to the Tampa Airport but instead took the WWE HOFer to the hospital after Jerry described how he was feeling. More tests are being run and other specialists opinions will be acquired to attempt to discover why the younger brother of the great, Jack Brisco is having these serious issues. I assure you that Jerry Brisco is a fighter and when I talked to him this week nothing was ever more evident.

-Many fans will never know how vital Jerry Brisco was to the WWE Talent Relations department over the years particularly when we were signing some of WWE’s future, biggest, all time stars and looking far and wide for world class athletes to comprise the WWE roster.
