JR Discusses Randy Orton's Suspension, Damien Sandow, Brock Lesnar's Future With UFC & WWE, More

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

-Amazed at the amount of questions we have received on Twitter @JRsBBQ regarding Randy Orton's 60 suspension from WWE for a 2nd violation of WWE's Wellness Policy. Not too sure what there is to not understand even though some followers would have likely been better off outside playing with their friends than asking "What is a Wellness Policy?"

Others have questioned the need for such a policy which I find absurdly stupid, not the policy but the questioning why one is needed. Bottom line is that the business as always been about such things as "when one door closes, another door opens" and that "being in the right place at the right time" and both are still valid and viable in today's ever changing world and that includes sports entertainment.

-Really am enjoying how WWE has introduced Damien Sandow to Smackdown. Sandow meant something to the viewer when he had his first TV match thanks to vignettes, etc. How a talent is introduced and how they execute their end of the equation is supremely imperative for any young talent. 

-What would I think of Brock Lesnar attempting to become a 'two sport' guy and perform in WWE and fight in UFC at the same time frame? I'd suggest that it would be ill advised and that it can't be done on the highest level of each genre in an efficient manner. Obviously, a person could do it, theoretically, and enhance his earnings over the short haul but it seems as if it would be too taxing an issue on one's body to attempt such a feat. I have no idea is that idea is even on Lesnar's radar but we've gotten the question here a great deal. I'm not in touch with Brock and haven't been for years so my take on the matter is merely one man's opinion.
