Found December 22, 2012 on Wrestling Truth:
PLAYERS: Sin Cara
Sin Cara has successful knee surgery: WWE star Sin Cara underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday and is now rehabbing the injury at home in Mexico. The Luchadore noted on Twitter: “Surgery went great, now I’m back in Mexico. Let’s get something to eat.” Like CM Punk, Sin Cara had attempted to work through the pain but WWE doctors decided surgery would prevent any long term damage. He was written out of the storylines on SmackDown by being attacked by the Shield. Speaking of Sin Cara he was recently interviewed in WWE Magazine about adapting to American wrestling: “By far, the most difficult thing I’ve had to adapt to is the fact that 95 percent of the Superstars speak English and only English. I’m a Mexican-born luchador, and I never felt I was going to need English. I lived in Mexico; I had a career there. It’s not that I never wanted to learn English; I just never had the need to. So working in an English-speaking environment has been quite the challenge! But I’m taking classes, and I study at home and on the road.” ___________________________________________________________ Impact rating is in: This week’s episode of TNA Impact Wrestling on Spike TV drew a 0.99 cable rating, with an average audience of 1,270,000 viewers. This is up slightly from the previous week’s 0.96 number. ___________________________________________________________ Kurt Angle taking short time off: Due to nagging injuries and personal commitments TNA star Kurt Angle will be taking two weeks off over the holiday period. The Olympian noted on Twitter: “Hey Everyone, Sorry if I’ve Been Incognito but I’m Selling House, Buying New House, Moving, having Our Baby, nursing Groin Injury All At …” ___________________________________________________________ JR’s latest blog: Veteran WWE announcer Jim Ross is back with another JRSBARBQ.com blog. Here are some highlights… Thoughts on Big E. Langston: “The addition to Big E Langston is significant, especially, for @HeelZiggler notwithstanding @WWEAJLee. I’ve seen a lot of Big E in NXT and he’s a physical beast with uncanny natural strength and surprising agility for a 280 pounder. “E” is no Clydesdale and his football background has enhanced Langston’s athleticism. Aside from @TheMarkHenry, Langston is likely the strongest man on any WWE roster. As I have said here on multiple times, I’d suggest that you keep an eye on Big E Langston whose upside is significant. But, as always, “Potential will only buy the groceries for so long. Seeing these young talents evolve in NXT is so rewarding to me. It’s much more enjoyable for me to invest my time, at this point in my career, with the youngsters in NXT than it is to battle TSA, etc and travel weekly doing #WWE TV.” The Rock’s return: “Lots of @TheRock talk online as “The Great One” prepares to return for some limited engagements in @WWE in 2013. Love the manure that some keyboard warriors, who have spent so much time in a WWE locker room, spread that Rock’s return will polarize the locker room. That’s embarrassingly ignorant in my personal opinion. The more eyeballs turned in to any WWE show the better. These Rock, TV bookings are when everyone who appears on a TV show should truly maximize their minutes. Plus, @TheRock will bring more money to the table at PPV’s of which all the talents share to some degree.” Cody Rhodes‘ mustache: “Sign of the times in today’s grappling world…a talent’s mustache makes headlines and accomplishes the coveted, Twitter trending. @CodyRhodesWWE has all it takes to be a huge star, mustache or not. Thank Goodness Cody got his good looks from his Mama. Cody will be a fan favorite down the road and one of distinction…..if you will.”
