Jim Ross did a very special blog dedicated to the late Jack Brisco. Here are some notable passages:
I got to know Jack on a more personal level when I went to work in WWE in 1993 as I worked closely with Jack’s brother Jerry in the talent relations department. Jerry recruited our best ever signees from the amateur ranks. Plus, Jerry and I joined forces to sign both Chris Jericho and the Big Show w/ “in home” recruiting visits in Tampa. Jerry became my closest confidant and with that came another blessing for me…getting to know, on a personal level, Jerry’s big brother, the great Jack Brisco.
I feel so blessed that I got to know Jack Brisco on a personal level and I loved him like family. Jack Brisco was revered within our business but he was always just a poor kid from Oklahoma, raised without a father who always wanted to be a pro wrestler, and through hard work and dedication became one of the most famous men to ever wrestle for a living.
Definitely a great read from Ross, check out the full blog entry
