The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

On Sting to WWE rumors: “My Twitter, @JRsBBQ, timeline is being hammered with the latest Sting rumors of him coming to WWE at some point n the future. Are these rumors of any significant difference than the basic, in the future. Are these rumors of any significant difference than the basic, same ones that we’ve been hearing since WCW closed their doors or every time Sting’s contract nears it’s end? As best that I know, Sting is very happy where he is currently working and has no plans to launch a WWE in ring career at the age of 54. I’ve known Sting since day one and have immense respect for the man and do feel that he will be a WWE HOFer some day.”

On his ESPN project: “The project that I worked on with ESPN.com on OU football will be published this coming Tuesday at espn.com. Five of our al had a fantasy draft to comprise an offense and a defense including specialists had a fantasy draft to comprise an offense and a defense including specialists of former Sooners. There were actually two men drafted that had distinguished, pro wrestling careers.”

On a best call tournament: “Check out the poll that’s ongoing now at Awfulannouncing.com as one of my old calls is in the competition.”

    Told you. At 54 y.o., Sting isn’t going to start all over again and or end his career jobbing to somebody.

      True, especially to guys that can’t lace his boots so to speak. He was and is well respected in the industry. The one thing that may have tarnished it a little bit was that clown bit but other than that he’s tops.
