JR Blog: Howard Stern Bashing WWE, Obama vs. Clinton From RAW & More
Jim Ross is back with another blog entry from his official website. You can read the entire blog here: Some highlights:
Howard Stern saying he would not vote for a President that watches wrestling: “Seems like a strange thing for Stern to say. Apparently, Stern has a very low opinion of the wrestling business. Now that’s irony coming from Stern, who is one of the last guys I thought would have an antiquated, wrestling bias.”
William Regal as King of the Ring: “KOR winner William Regal is arguably one of the more underutilized talents in the biz and even though Regal can definitely talk, which all General Managers must obviously be able to do, he adds a valuable element of experience and expertise to any bout in which he is involved. In the immediate future one has to wonder if Regal is likely to continue to be the Raw G.M. or will Regal focus more on his wrestling career now that the U.K. native from Blackpool, England is the reigning King of the Ring?”
Joey Styles’ move to WWE.com: “Joey Styles told me Monday in catering, no jokes please, that he was really enjoying his new gig at www.wwe.com. Joey seemed to be the most relaxed and comfortable that I have seen him since coming to work at the WWE. Joey has already instituted several changes to the WWE website with plenty more on their way. Joe said he was now a “retired announcer” and budding corporate executive.”
Best Wrestler Alive: “Just for the record….Danny Hodge is the greatest, living wrestler in the world….especially on this website.”
Obama vs. Clinton from RAW: “Some wrestling pundits really slammed the “match” between the impersonators posing as Hillary and Barack. I am not sure what folks expectations were for this “contest,” but it was, plain and simple, nothing more than a publicity stunt that did garner a great deal of pub the week of a WWE pay per view. The WWE made air on media outlets that would never mention the WWE unless there was a tragedy or a scandal. While the “match” was not my personal cup of tea, it did not last long enough to offend me and I sort of got a kick out of the ovation Umaga received when he came to the ring to put an end to the frivolity.”
