Jim Ross comments on Jerry Lawler's return to WWE Raw, his own broadcasting future, the WWE Survivor Series broadcast team
Nov 13, 2012 - 08:11 PM


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights. To order J.R.'s BBQ products, visit WWEShop.com.

-Ross on Jerry Lawler returning at WWE Raw: "Seeing Jerry and getting to introduce him back to Raw was a big, personal thrill for me. It was approximately two months ago that I never thought I would see him alive again. Our hug was real. That was a 'moment' in case you might be wondering what a real 'moment' in our business truly is."

Powell's POV: This was the best part of the show, though I felt it was overshadowed by the controversial followup with C.M. Punk and Paul Heyman. Ross had a lot more to say about The King's return and hanging out with him prior to the show in his actual blog. As always, we're only running the highlights.

-Ross on working on Raw and his future: "The plan all along was for me to simply sit in for the King, do color commentary and not play by play, and keep Jerry's seat warm until he was well enough to return to the announce table. I never heard anyone in WWE ever discuss King, Cole and me ever doing a three man announce team but that rumor or sentiment sort of took on a life of its own in some fan's eyes. I had a blast coming out of the bullpen and helping out but Raw is a Cole/King entity and I'm more than happy to watch from my La-Z-Boy from Norman until I'm needed again on any WWE broadcast. At this time, I've certainly got plenty of WWE projects to keep me busy."

Powell's POV: Ross will be back on the job on Thursday night for the latest NXT taping. We may hear more from him in the weeks ahead since JBL will eventually need some time away for his mountain climbing treks. The Ross and Cole pairing turned out to be a good one. I wasn't crazy about Ross playing a hybrid role in the past, but he and Cole worked very well together this time around.

-Ross on the Survivor Series broadcast team: "I've got to think that the banter between, I assume, @JClayfield and @JerryLawler Sunday night will be memorable. JBL is quite the character and the talkative Texan's return to WWE TV has been awesome but John best bring is antagonist 'A' game against arguably one of the top, small handful of promo men to ever work in the business in Jerry Lawler. "

Powell's POV: I hope they keep JBL in the mix on pay-per-view events. He brings a lot to the table and it's refreshing to hear an old school heel on color commentary.
