WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the Q&A section of The following items are among the highlights. To order J.R.'s BBQ products, visit

Ross on Jim Cornette and the WWE Hall of Fame: "JC is overly qualified but I don't know if he will ever get the nod. If so, it could easily be this year in New Orleans. He seems to be positioned as a 'political outcast.' Bottom line is that I do not know."

Powell's POV: WWE needs to get over whatever issues are keeping Cornette and The Midnight Express out of their Hall of Fame. It was a great act (regardless of who was teaming with Bobby Eaton) and it is more than Hall of Fame worthy.

Ross on whether he would open a new JR's BBQ Restaurant: "If someone wanted to create another JR's and finance it, I'd consider it IE license my name and recipes. I'm not going to consider any other way."

Powell's POV: In other words, Ross isn't getting back into restaurant management.

Ross on whether there will be another WWE Rivalry DVD: "This is completely up to WWE and would largely depend on how the HBK-Hitman DVD sold as well. It's a good concept but that's where my info end. If they do another, likely another announcer would host it."

Powell's POV: I also enjoyed this format and would like to see WWE do more with the concept. It will be tougher with Ross out of the fold because he was the right man to serve as the moderator/interviewer.

Other Q&A topics included whether The Rock has undergone facial surgery in the last ten years (strange), whether Ross will appear on WWE television again, the Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 20, and many more.
