JBL has posted a new blog on Facebook talking about his experience calling this week’s Raw, Ryback’s rise, his upcoming mountain climb and Jerry Lawler’s return to WWE next week in Memphis.
“Had a great time this week calling both Raw and Smackdown. I had always wanted to call matches with JR and was great to be able to do so, especially considering how good the show was Monday.
“I thought the McMahon vs CM Punk match was excellent, a perfect story of the old lion McMahon who always finds a way to win against the “Best in the World”.
“The run in by Ryback surprised me at the reaction he got, WWE has got a bonafide star in Ryback. The problem now comes in fulfilling the hype, a great job has been done with Ryback-and there will be some hiccups along the way, but he has gotten over in a huge way in a short amount of time.
“It goes to show that some have ‘it’ and some don’t. It’s still too early completely to tell, but I think Ryback does have ‘it’.
“Still don’t know what the future holds for me and WWE, I just know I am having a great time filling in for King while he recovers. Our youth program in Bermuda starts up this month for this season and I have a lot to do to get ready.
“Not to mention that I have ‘Mt Death’ waiting on me in January in South America and I have 13 weeks to train starting on Friday. This mountain is a lot harder than Kilimanjaro and going to have to put in a lot of time getting ready.”
So, don’t have an answer for all those who ask what my future is, I am having a ball being back. I make fun of Cole incessantly (which I really enjoy btw) but he is as prepared as anyone I have ever seen do a telecast. It’s really easy just being able to react knowing he is doing the brunt of the work.
Not sure what I am doing if anything next week, but would love to be around for Jerry Lawler’s return in Memphis if possible.”
