WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on Here are some highlights: - @TheMarkHenry delivering a convincing, World’s Strongest Slam to the long and heavy Great Khali cannot be overlooked or undersold. Henry’s a monster who has been noticeably impactful since his return from the injured list. The massive Texan is certainly not the jovial, easy going Mark Henry that we signed back in 1995. That’s a good thing. - @IAmJericho vs. @WWEDanielBryan lived up to what I was hoping when I heard the match was made. I could watch these two talents go , seemingly, every week, well, at least for several weeks. Another ‘Best of Seven’ candidate. Chris Jericho hasn’t missed a step and is arguably as good right now as he’s ever been. Great move by @WWE in getting Chris back in the ring. - @RealJackSwagger getting a ringside representative in Zeb Colter, not to be confused with author Ann Coulter or David Letterman’s version of @HowardFinkel, Allan Coulter, and I like the potential of this paring. I have great confidence that my fellow Oklahoman Swagger will get on a roll and that Zeb may be the missing ingredient that makes Swagger saucey. The Elimination Chamber will be a telling night for the man who is and always will be the 2nd toughest man to hail from Perry, Oklahoma. (Dan Hodge being the first.) - Wrestling being dropped from the Olympic Games by the apparent, out of touch International Olympic Committee, the IOC, is, bottom line, pet coon goofy. It makes absolutely no sense to eliminate the oldest sport in the Olympic Games and to compromise the integrity of the Games for TV ratings and more cash. Many mat dreams were dashed today regarding the IOC’s announcement and hopefully smarter heads will prevail before this mandate is actually ratified.
