JR: Gerry Brisco Scouting Amateur Talent For WWE, Steve Austin, Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony, AXXESS

Written by Richard Gray on Mar 23, 2010 - 4:35:04 PM

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

- My dear friend and fellow WWE HOF'er Gerald Brisco attended the recent NCAA National Wrestling Tournament in Omaha scouting for WWE. GB told me that he met several athletes who expressed a desire to explore their career options in WWE. Smart move by WWE to send Brisco to Omaha in search of world class athletes with marketable personalities. I wonder if any MMA groups had representatives in Omaha because if they didn't one has to wonder if they are really paying attention? Just asking...

- Stone Cold is ubiquitous this week promoting his action/adventure film "Damage" which is on sale now on DVD. Steve will be on the East Coast this week including a stop off at Harvard University. The Mrs and I will be buying multiple copies of "Damage" to package with our own products for holiday gift giving for our "loved ones." What says that we love you more than a "Damage" DVD and some Chipotle Ketchup?? Exactly.

- I look forward to attending the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Saturday night. It's honestly one of my favorite, wrestling related events of the year. A close, dear, personal friend got us two, really good seats adjacent to the Hart Family Section which ended up being near Tucson. Hey, LOTS of Harts are attending as the patriarch of the family, Stu Hart, is being inducted. Gosh I wish Stu was alive to accept his award as his acceptance speech would be a classic and longer than Superstar Billy Graham's and might even get us into Sunday. BTW I'll be the guy with the fake tan and wearing a black hat sitting next to a very hot, younger woman who I have luckily been married to for 17 years this October right around the time that Oklahoma plays Texas in the Cotton Bowl. Whew....long sentence. I always had trouble with those damn sound bytes.

- I found out a few hours ago that I have two appearances at Wrestlemania 26 AXXESS. I guess someone got sickly. Seriously ladies and gentlemen, I will be at AXXESS, just love spelling AXXESS on the keyboard, on Saturday morning bright and early from 8 until 10 a.m. and again Sunday morning for a brunch time appearance from 10 a.m.-noon. I am under the impression that these appearances are affiliated with the WWE Hall of Fame and that we will be signing autographs and giving bone marrow. That last part was just me being silly. I do look forward to seeing and meeting fans from all over the world at AXXESS. If you're at AXXESS, I can't help myself, this weekend drop by and say hello or "hey" as they often did back in the day in Mayberry.
