Jim Ross returns with a juicy blog entry hitting all the popular keywords we love right now including Wrestlemania 26, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and more:
on a return to WWE/Wrestlemania 26:
It was great seeing so many of my friends from the WWE world Monday at the Ford Center. It is always good to catch up with long time acquaintances and how they and their families are doing. If I was asked once, I was asked a 100 times, “When are you coming back?” I don’t have the exact answer to that question but my standard and honest response remains the same and that is that my goal is and always has been to return to WWE at Wrestlemania 26. If all the necessary arrangements can be made from a business perspective then that goal will hopefully become a reality. There is really no more to this story than I told the live audience during Raw while the show was in a commercial break and that I would “hopefully” see them at Wrestlemania.
on talking to Bret Hart:
Bret Hart and I had a long conversation Monday of which I enjoyed immensely. Bret is one of the all time greats, a WWE HOF’er, and has battled thru amazing adversity in overcoming a serious stroke to get to where he is today. Bret, as we discussed, will never be “100%” but his heart and spirit are strong and he will no doubt do all he physically and mentally can to provide the fans their monies worth at WM26 versus Mr. McMahon. I personally can’t wait to see this attraction. Bret and I even talked casually about doing some appearances together, perhaps even some Q&A’s, if all the details could be arranged. I would love that opportunity and feel that we could provide those in attendance a interesting evening of entertainment. This is all drawing board stuff and may never come to fruition but it was fun to brainstorm. I think that I need to meet him in his Hawaii home to discuss further.
on Shawn Michaels:
Shawn Michaels and I talked at length Monday about a variety of topics including the Mid South days in OKC when the wrestlers used to wrestle at the Myriad, still across the street from the Ford Center and renamed, every other Sunday at 2 p.m. and then they would drive the 100 miles to Tulsa via the Turner Turnpike to tape two, one hour Mid South Wrestling TV shows beginning at 7 p.m. Shawn is another extraordinary athlete and a man who I respect so much and who has maintained his amazingly high level of performances inside the ring even though he’s north of 40. It’s hard to name many men ever who have been better in the ring in any era and especially in a big match environment that HBK. I sure can’t.
