WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. In this entry, Ross focused primarily on Kevin Nash's recent controversial comments about the pro wrestling industry "dying" at WrestleMania 20, which culminated with Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero celebrating in the ring as the company's top champions.
Here are some highlights of what Jim Ross said about the situation:
"I'm an old school guy who thinks that wrestlers come in all shapes and sizes and that the final, final decree on how well said talents produce is ultimately left up to the consumer aka the fans."
"Lots of sub six feet tall athletes have been huge box office draws in the biz over the years. There are too many to mention here."
"Several big men who have migrated into the pro wrestling world simply because of their size have failed. Some haven't. Kevin Nash was and still is very successful. He's made a lot of money and he's saved it. Smart guy. Out of the entire Grantland piece the thing that I felt was most compelling for today's wrestlers, rookies, wannabe's, etc, is that Kevin Nash made big money and he took care of it."
Despite the negative backlash Nash's comments have received on Twitter, from past and present wrestlers, Ross went on to praise Nash:
"Nash is a brilliant guy...love him or hate him. He's a survivor and by any means necessary which at times doesn't sit well with some people."
"I helped give Kevin one of his first breaks while we were both in Atlanta in the early 90's when WCW management, and I use that term loosely, did not know what to do with an athletic, 7 footer who could talk and who had a great look. When management heard Kev in on my WSB Radio show it opened their eyes to what they potentially had."
"No, I don't agree with Kevin on his smaller wrestlers theory as I like all that have true talent. But I do defend his right to express himself and chuckle at the ability that he has to manipulate fans and peers alike in 140 characters or less."
Is it just me or is JR the only sane man here.

- WWE's booking committee are contemplating a scenario where CM Punk would drop the WWE Championship to John Cena at SummerSlam to set up a rematch between Cena and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson at Royal Rumble-Johnson announced at Raw 1,000 that he would face whoever the WWE Champion is at the January pay-per-view event. Johnson would defeat Cena at the Rumble and then defend the title against Punk at WrestleMania XXIX.

-- UFC's Diego Sanchez recently spoke about WWE's Daniel Bryan using the "YES" chant. Here is what he had to say…
On Daniel Bryan Using The ‘YES' Chant: "I watched an interview and they asked him where he got the 'Yes' and he said he got it from Diego Sanchez," said Sanchez in a recent interview. "He's promoting me in a way, so I got his back."
On Working With Bryan in The Future: "My team has reached out to them and we'll see what happens," said Sanchez. "We both are the 'Yes' men and if we could help each other that's what it's about. It's about that positivity and motivating yourself to do things you could never do when unmotivated."
Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...
As a way to have Cena stay the hell away from the main event. Have him challenge Taker for the WM winning streak. WWE might aswell get Cena out of the way before Taker officially retires

A group with the rather specifically-themed name of "Moms Opposing McMahon" put together a rally today in order to voice their opposition to Linda McMahon's Senate campaign. The rally, held in West Hartford, Connecticut, delivered a message similar to that released by the state Democratic Party, which supports the group. The group notes that they are not financially aligned with Chris Murphy, the Democrat who is likely to face Linda in the general election. The group mostly pointed out the company's Attitude Era programming, such as the oft-criticized segments portrayed as degrading to women.
When asked for comment, WWE's senior VP of communications Brian Finn said, "All WWE broadcast programming is TV-PG, rated not by us, but by the standards and practices departments of our TV network distributors, while the majority of today's prime time programming is rated TV-14. Five million women watch WWE's weekly TV programming, representing nearly 40 percent of our TV audience. Women would not be watching if they found our programming objectionable."
I don't buy the story about punk/rock at mania.
It makes sense in reguards to what they do with elimination chamber, but Punk isn't the draw Cena is. If they want Cena to win the belt i don't understand why it's a 3 way match, which are generaly used so a guy can win without winning.
Nothing's gonna happen without a warning
I have a comic book podcast, my name is Luro on it. Please listen for the good of mankind.
On this week’s episode of MLW Radio presented by WWNLive.com, fresh off of TripleMania, AAA matchmaker Konnan spoke about the lack of new stars in WWE:
“They need to make more stars, dude. We talk about this every week. I don’t know why they don’t, why they haven’t. They’ve always been behind the curve, so has wrestling in general. That hurts a lot. I have a lot of ideas of how you could change it to make it cooler, but who in that company could do that Stone Cold gimmick or that Rock gimmick? They don’t have anybody and then on top of that, they’re not giving enough time to make new stars.”
“It’s always the same guys over and over and over. It’s like, alright, those guys are already stars, let’s make new ones. I don’t know if any of those guys are stepping up though and saying look, I’ve got a great gimmick, let’s go with it. It just doesn’t seem like it. They just don’t have those big stars there and they’re not making new ones like they should.”
