Jim Ross Blog: Monday Night Raw 1000, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar, John Cena

Excerpts from Jim Ross’ latest blog entry, starting with JR’s thoughts on Raw 1000: “WWE is approaching the 1000th episode of Monday night Raw in St. Louis on July 23. I’ve got to believe that this will be a hot ticket in St. L. I’ve cleared my calendar in case I’m called upon to be a part of the festivities. The best years of my WWE career were spent doing the live, Monday Night Raw broadcasts when, often times, the chips were down during the Monday night wars. Being a part of WWE’s franchise broadcast was a honor. I hope that those that are engaged in today’s Monday night process fully realize how special it is to be along for the ride on Monday nights and never approach the gig as merely a job.”

Jim Ross on Paul Heyman’s ability to sell tickets and hype Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H at SummerSlam: “I mentioned this morning on Sean Pendergast’s national radio show on www.yahoosportsradio.com that if I had to choose one antagonist to cut a money promo to sell PPV’s and tickets who’s currently in WWE that it would be Paul Heyman. Heyman is naturally argumentative, stubborn and headstrong. But he’s also highly intelligent and doesn’t play the ‘role’ of a wrestling bad guy. What one sees with Heyman is what you have in reality. Brock Lesnar is fortunate that he has Heyman legitimately in his corner to represent the former WWE and UFC champion who had rather ‘harvest’ animals than deal with humans. Check out the podcat at the Yahoo Sports Radio website.”

Jim Ross Cookbook / Sauces Packages Available at WWEShop.com: “One of the best deals on JR’s products is either the JR’s Cookbook package OR the Sauces Package. WWEShop.com has a sale ongoing and they ship to such places as the UK and Canada. Delivery in the USA takes only a matter of days. We do NOT have our products in any retail stores except the four, Norman, Oklahoma Homelands and at this time we have no opportunities to get into major retailers such as K-Mart or Wal Mart. Nonetheless we continue to keep trying but encourage everyone to hit http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss and order there.”

Jim Ross on John Cena Granting His 300th Wish for Make-A-Wish Foundation: “Congrats to @JohnCena for granting his 300th Make-A-Wish which is an amazing accomplishment. Not sure many realize how challenging it is to interact with terminally ill children but take it from me it’s sobering, memorable and life changing. I can remember every Make-A-Wish that I’ve done over the years and I’m no where close to 300. These are the bravest kids in the world. No matter if one likes Cena’s TV persona or not this isn’t about a TV show or a TV character but about life and death reality. John Cena should be saluted for his efforts.”
