Jim Ross comments on Ric Flair being attacked by his wife, the newest member of the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2010, and Frank Mir saying he hopes UFC Champ Brock Lesnar dies inside the octagon
Feb 23, 2010 - 10:28 AM


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.

-Ross on Ric Flair: "Sorry to hear of the firestorm that my pal Ric Flair found himself in Sunday night. 'Naitch' and I have been friends for over a quarter of a century and I choose to remain steadfastly behind him. We don't know all the details of this unfortunate matter nor do we need to know all the details. What we all should do is to hope that this matter is resolved to everyone's happiness and all involved parties can proceed with their lives. Same goes, in this space, for the Tiger Woods' controversy. I'm over it."

Powell's POV: It's hard not to crack a couple jokes about a man being roughed up by his wife. However, I respect the fact that Flair apparently didn't retaliate. If he had, he would most likely be sitting behind bars right now and his public image would have taken a major hit.

-Ross on new WWE Hall of Fame entrant Wendi Richter: "Congrats to Wendi Richter for her HOF announcement. If my memory serves me correctly, as a young lady Wendi lived in Louisiana and was a big time Mid South Wrestling fan. As the story goes, or so I've been told, she approached Mid South's Grizzly Smith about breaking into the biz as a teen and he encouraged her to finish her formal education before Wendi finally went to train with Lillian (The Fabulous Moolah) Ellison in South Carolina. Nonetheless I'm happy for Wendi and was pleasantly surprised when her named was called."

Powell's POV: Wendi being named as an inductee was a big surprise. I didn't see it coming. I'm sure there are plenty of skeptics who will point out more deserving candidates, but Wendi played a big role in the Rock and Wrestling Connection saga that helped kick off WWE's national expansion. Plus, it will be fun to see Roddy Piper deliver the induction speech.

-Ross on Frank Mir: "UFC's Frank Mir made some alarmingly strong and controversial comments on the popular, Mark Madden radio show in Pittsburgh recently about wanting to see Brock Lesnar 'die inside the Octagon' seemingly and preferably at Mir's hands. Frank Mir is a badass who is a driven man but he may want to start thinking before he begins talking. I think Mir is a compelling, sports figure who is obviously obsessed with mangling Brock Lesnar but it's not Brock Lesnar that Mir is fighting soon. Paging Shane Carwin.

Powell's POV: It sounds like Mir is trying to hype a fight he doesn't even know he has yet. He should be focussed on hyping his fight with Carwin. Of course, this gets Mir's name in the news, but it's for all the wrong reasons, as far as I'm concerned. There is still a perception amongst many people that UFC is barbaric and nothing more than a blood sport. As much as I disagree with such claims, Frank's comments won't help change that perception.

Other topics include much more on Lesnar and Mir, and WWE super fan "Sign Guy."
