Jim Ross checks in with a weekend blog with updates from a couple 90’s stars and his UFC 110 thoughts.
on his latest emails with Stone Cold Steve Austin:
Got a cool email from Steve Austin showing me a billboard for his upcoming film “Damage” which is to be released on DVD in March…more specifically in a few weeks. I’m anxious to see the film and will be purchasing it just like I hope many of you do. Austin will be making the rounds promoting the action/adventure movie including Raw on March 15. Steve is the official starter for the big, NASCAR race this weekend, the Auto Club 500 which is NASCAR’s West Coast Premier in 2010. Take a close look at turn number three as that’s where Steve’s billboard is located which depicts him with a nasty, pissed off look on his face which may come as a huge shock to Stone Cold’s many, long time fans….only kidding. Check your TV listings for the Auto Club 500 and, hopefully, there won’t be any inane pothole delays as many of us endured at the Daytona 500.
Leon “Vader” White emailed me this week and is sending me some things of which to remember our late, old friend Steve “Dr. Death” Williams. Leon has made many, personal, life style changes not to mention becoming a Born Again Christian. Leon and his son Jesse will form a tag team in April in Japan which will undoubtedly be an exiting experience for father and son. Jesse graduates from Oklahoma University in May and will likely test the waters in pro wrestling upon getting his college degree. Jesse is about 6’1″-240 pounds and is healthy now that he has stepped away from big time, college football and isn’t carrying the additional weight that he did when he was the top center in high school football in America. Jesse has done some training with the incomparable Harley Race who used to manage Jesse’s dad, Big Van Vader, in Atlanta’s WCW .
on UFC 110:
UFC 110 is today from Australia. I’m looking forward to the event, as usual. I’m especially anxious to see heavyweight’s Cain VelÃ¡squez vs. Antonio Rodrigo Norgueira bang. The younger VelÃ¡squez is looking to vault himself strongly into the heavyweight title picture with a victory against the veteran Norgueira. The vet still has fuel left in his tank and wants to remain relevant and possibly in line for a shot against Brock Lesnar some day, as well. VelÃ¡squez tipped the Toledo’s at 242 which is about 10 pounds more than his older adversary.
