WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog on JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights. Superstar Billy Graham’s Failing Health: Prayers to Superstar Billy Graham as he is very ill or so reports say. For those wishing to reach out to Superstar he is on Facebook as I understand it. Tyson Kidd Undergoing Surgery: Tyson Kidd, one of the potentially brightest young stars in WWE, underwent knee surgery Thursday to repair multiple injuries and will be out until sometime late in 2013. I am very high on Kidd’s in-ring work and have seen him have some tremendous outings while performing at NXT. Hopefully when Tyson is healthy he will look at his return as a fresh start as, hopefully, will all involved in the process. If you’ve heard my commentary during Kidd’s NXT bouts you already know what I think of this young man’s potential. Who Will Induct Mick Foley: I wonder if the selection of who inducts Mick Foley would not have become a topical matter this week if not for Twitter and the Internet? Obviously not. I still like Terry Funk as Mick’s Choice as his presenter or perhaps even Mick’s oldest son. Bottom line, it is totally @RealMickFoley‘s call. I can’t wait to hear his induction speech. WWE Signing More Collegiate Talent: The signing of Clayton Jack from Oregon State won’t be the last outstanding collegiate athlete that WWE Talent Development signs this year. Far from it, actually. Yes, WWE will still scour the independent circuits for the best talents available, but the raw numbers will be found in colleges. These specific athletes have no bad in-ring habits, have a thorough resume that can be thoroughly reviewed, and have been in a structured, athletic program where they have been held accountable and measured in a variety of ways since high school.
