JR: “It is a privilege to be booked” at Mania


In Jim Ross’ latest blog entry, he talks about whether or not Mickie James will be booked at Wrestlemania, his favorite matches, the prospects for ECW, and CM Punk among other topics. On Punk:

I guess some fans’ thoughts on the professional demise of C.M. Punk may have been premature. But wait, if Punk fails to win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at Wrestlemania, THEN he will be on a path to obscurity, right? Punk is young and has a world of improvement he can make to become the wrestler he aspires to be. I like the young man and think he has an excellent upside. What Punk and others do with this potential is up to them.

He also talks about the possibility of a Legends Division in wrestling, answers a question about enhancement wrestlers, reveals that he interviewed Mick Foley for a series of interview segments on his book that will appear on WWE.com (a la the Bradshaw/Bischoff ones), explains why Lilian missed RAW on Monday (“she was involved in a minor accident on Sunday at No Way Out”), reports that the next WWE 24/7 “Legends” show will feature talk on the Monday Night Wars and more. As always it’s a good read.
