WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a new blog on JRsbarbq.com. Here are some highlights. Thoughts on new WWE signee: “Clayton Jack, Oregon State Wrestling All American heavyweight, has signed with WWE after being scouted by Jerry Brisco and then being evaluated by many of us at a camp in Tampa several months ago. He’s a big kid with a wonderful, outgoing, positive personality who has the chance to be a top hand if he is willing to put in the time and work to make it happen of which I think that he will. As a rule, hard work doesn’t scare off amateur wrestlers especially those with collegiate experience. Clayton returned to the Beavers to finish his college degree which I personably feel is imperative to have for any one wanting to join WWE’s Developmental Program. Because more prospects are going to not make it than are, having something to fall back on lessens the pressure somewhat on some of the youngsters in my view.” Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels: “Someone incorrectly wrote that I said that @steveaustinBSR was going to be in Houston which isn’t true. Steve and @ShawnMichaels were both booked months ago for a convention in Las Vegas called the Shot Show and couldn’t break these long standing business obligations to attend Monday’s Raw. Nor were they or any other of the typical suspects ever advertised. Of course it gave some folks a new opportunity to complain. I got hammered with complaints from the bravest people on Earth…the keyboard warriors of Twitter @JRsBBQ.” Eve Torres leaving WWE: “Sorry to see @evemarietorres depart WWE but she’s happily married to a Gracie of the legendary MMA Gracie family and will be entering into the family business as an instructor while building her own body of work in that field. Eve is a lovely young lady who is extremely athletic. She was raised right and was never an issue while in WWE as best that I know. I wish her well.”
