JR Discusses Daniel Bryan's Run As World Champion, Working WrestleMania, More

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

-For the record, informed fans who feel that Daniel Bryan is inadequate as World Champion in WWE have more than likely never had their a** whipped by a smaller guy. I can say this, on college campuses around the country and where amateur wrestling exists, the football players usually want nothing to do with the wrestlers especially the smaller wrestlers who carry enhanced chips on their shoulders.

-Been asked dozens of times if I'm broadcasting at WrestleMania 28. The honest answer is that I don't know. I don't find it newsworthy that I 'want' to broadcast WrestleMania because anyone in WWE who does any job in connection with the event and who doesn't want to be a part of WrestleMania should be future endeavored. That would be the equivalent of a NFL player NOT wanting to play in the Super Bowl. WrestleMania remains very special to me and I will be in Miami for WrestleMania week and will enjoy every minute of the experience no matter what I do.

-I guarantee you that every WWE athlete wants to be on the WM28 card, too, and those that don't make the cut will carry a certain degree of emptiness around with them for a good while. I used to recruit kids who I thought wanted to not just make the card but, in my view, had a fighting chance to headline WrestleMania. My theory was to always set one's goals high and those that reach them can establish their legacies and financial futures, unless they're a irresponsible and/or self destructive, for years to come. To appear at multiple WrestleMania events is an amazing accomplishment in my view. I have great memories of every WrestleMania I ever worked and could likely devote a book simply on that topic.
