Jim Ross Gives His Thoughts on the WWE Network, the WWE Hall of Fame Celebrity Wing, and Curt Hennig
– Jim Ross updated his JRsBarBq blog with some Sunday thoughts about the WWE Network, the WWE Hall of Fame, and more:
Ross on the WWE Network: “As a DirecTV customer I’m intrigued that they have legit interest in the much discussed WWE Network but why wouldn’t they? I know what you know about the proposed WWE Network but I’m hopeful that it becomes a reality in the future. I applaud WWE’s diligence in taking it slow and deliberate in the planning of such a major project.
Ross on WWE Hall of Fame possibilities and celebrity inductees: “Curious to see if WWE adds another name to the 2013 WWE HOF class this Monday night on Raw. This class is already star studded but it seems inevitable that another name, maybe two, will be announced. I’d assume a ‘Celebrity” inductee will be named and I can think of several on a short list including Regis Philbin, Andy Kaufman, Lawrence Taylor and Cyndy Lauper among others. Stay tuned.”
Ross on the anniversary of the passing of Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig: “Can’t help but think about Curt Hennig aka Mr. Perfect today on the anniversary of his untimely passing. “Perfecto’ was as good a natural athlete as I’ve ever been around in the wrestling biz. Curt starting so young and wrestling so much likely contributed to his lingering back injuries as back ailments are horrific for any performer in the sports entertainment biz. Curt was also one of the funniest guys that I ever worked with on commentary and had legit, natural timing much like a guy he watched while growing up, Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan.”
