WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.

Raw announce team: I wonder if the trio of Cole, Lawler and JBL are the new, full time RAW broadcast team? If so I think that it helps the three hour broadcast and I’ve never been one to embrace a three man broadcast booth in WWE or elsewhere within the genre but I do like these three and the job that they do. I’m still not wild about three man broadcast booths in the NFL or the NBA but they seem to work in the slower game of baseball. I encourage you to follow Cole and JBL on Twitter as they keep everyone updated on their various projects.

Saturday’s UFC event: Great job by @UFC and @FoxSports Saturday from San Jose on #UFCONFOX7. The San Jose crowd really helped the show. This was a solid, exciting card from start to finish that kicked things off with an awesome fight between Jordan Mein and Matt Brown. These dudes fought each other like they owed each other money and gave the show a superb beginning. One can’t underestimate how important the opening moments of a broadcast are whether it be WWE or UFC, etc.

Some fans got restless during the heavyweight fight between Frank Mir and Daniel Cormier because, I’m assuming, their styles contrasted so drastically to what preceded them and what was expected to follow in the main event. Cormier is going to be problematic with any heavyweight or light heavyweight if that is where he finds himself. Cormier’s short, has a low center of gravity, great balance, heavy hands and an amazing, amateur wrestling background that includes Oklahoma State University and the Olympics.

The Rock’s surgery: Good luck to Dwayne Johnson @TheRock on his upcoming abdominal surgery as a result of injuries he suffered early in his WM29 bout vs. John Cena.

Mick Foley’s new DVD: Getting great feedback on the new, @RealMickFoley DVD especially on the documentary aspect of it and the extras. I’d highly suggest that you check it out as it was well produced and contains some amazing memories and reactions from some of the biz’s biggest stars.
