JR Says Michael Cole Is The New Voice Of WWE, Gives High Praise To Paul Heyman & Bobby Heenan, Discusses Over The Edge '99, More

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

-I've been impressed with Michael Cole's more balanced commentary recently. He's the new voice of WWE w/o question. Our handshake at WM28 ended any personal issues that I may have had with him. End of story.

-Besides the King, my favorite broadcast partner, when looking at antagonists, is @HeymanHustle. He knew what buttons to push to get me to raise my game. I never played the role of an announcer and was always just myself, for better or for worse. Being real.

-Bobby Heenan was an amazing partner too but 'The Brain' was more funny than a villain. I've said it before, Bobby Heenan may well be the most talented, all around performer in the history of the wrestling business.

-Has anyone noticed that THOSE who tweet me about "How did you feel at Over the Edge in 1999?" get no response? I've tried to block that event out of my mind but I'm reminded of it daily. Someday I will watch the tragedy involving Owen Hart but ONLY if I decide to write about it. If I never write an autobiography of my career, then I will never watch the event. NEVER.
