Jim Ross Blog: WWE ’13 Video Game, Mick Foley and the HOF, CM Punk and the NWO, Tyson and Austin SummerSlam Weekend, The Rock as WWE Champion, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross touched on many different topics in his weekend blog post, including the WWE ’13 Video Game, Mick Foley and the WWE Hall of Fame, CM Punk and the NWO, Mike Tyson and Stone Cold Steve Austin at a SummerSlam 2012 weekend event, The Rock trying to become WWE Champion at the 2013 WWE Royal Rumble, and more:

Jim Ross on WWE ’13 Video Game: “Excited about rejoining @Jerry Lawler on the Attitude Era portion of the new, WWE13 video game out this fall. Pre orders are reportedly going really well and more info on pre-ordering can be had at many sites including THQ.com. King and I had a lot of fun recreating our commentary from the Attitude Era of which you will readily hear.”

Jim Ross on Mick Foley and the WWE HOF: “@RealMickFoley when asked who would induct him if/when Mick goes into the WWE HOF mentioned Terry Funk and yours truly. While I would love to honor Mick on that special occasion, there is no way that I would ever put myself in the same category with Terry Funk. Terry mentored Mick and treated Mick like a son. While I’d love to induct Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy into the WWE HOF, I think that Terry Funk is the best choice. However, I stand ready if called upon.”

Jim Ross on CM Punk, Factions and the NWO: “A follower on @JRsBBQ on Twitter asked if I thought @CMPunk would reform the nWo. I have no idea if this topic is any thing more than speculation based on my friend Kevin Nash having some fun with the subject on Twitter. Bottom line is that I don’t know but I would be surprised if Punk headed up a faction at this time because he seems to be such a solitary man. The only way that I see that ever happening at this stage of Punk’s career is if he had complete control on who comprised the group.”

Jim Ross Promotes BBQ Sauce and WWE Shop: “The newly designed WWEShop.com is slick and clean. Check out our page there at this link to order JR’s products or just to browse, http://www.wweshop.com/Category/JimRoss. It’s SO much easier to shop and order now on the new WWEShop.com. Business has Picked Up!”

Jim Ross on Tyson and Austin at SummerSlam Weekend Event: “If you see me wandering around LA Summerslam weekend, I’m there for a major, THQ function at the Grammy Museum the night before the PPV. Among those scheduled to attend the private affair are @steveaustinBSR and @miketyson, among many others. Hope to attend Summerslam merely as a fan. I want to see HHH vs. Lesnar!”

Jim Ross Comparing 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies to WWE Dark Matches: “I tweeted Friday night that being a country who got introduced to the live crowd at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony during a TV commercial break in the USA was the equivalent to working a ‘dark match’ at a WWE TV taping. True.”

Jim Ross on The Rock’s Quest for the WWE Championship: “So @TheRock is going to attempt to win the WWE Title at the 2013 Rumble, right? Firstly, don’t bet against that occurring although there are no guarantees in this genre. Secondly, I’d love to see Rock vs. CM Punk as I feel that Punk’s style and aggression would push The Rock and take the ‘Great One’ out of his comfort zone. World class athletes like @TheRock are at their best when they are pushed to the next level much like Austin and Rock did each other back in the day.”
