WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross on Terry Funk inducting Mick Foley into the WWE Hall of Fame, Fandango, and an update on Ric Flair's health
Mar 27, 2013 - 01:43 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 Terry Funk inducting Mick Foley: "Great choice by Mick Foley to select Terry Funk to induct Mr. Foley's baby boy at the 2013 WWE HOF induction ceremony. The Funker is Mick's mentor and idol. I think it's pretty cool when a Hall of Fame inductee can actually have their all-time favorite wrestler, their father like figure within the business and their role model as it relates to in ring style and approach to the game induct them.

Speaking of Terry Funk, he was arguably the most UNDERRATED broadcaster that I ever worked with as we did several prime time broadcasts during the WCW days in Atlanta. Terry was a great story teller, understood the business explicitly, was a great listener and he always put the in-ring talent first. If I were asked, I'd suggest that the Funk/Foley duo be the first out of the gate on Saturday night April 6 in the sold out Madison Square Garden to kick off the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony."

Shore’s Slant: Funk is a hell of a talker, and considering the loaded lineup for the Hall this year, Funk and Foley as the opener is a great idea. Speaking of, how great would that tag team name have been? Funk 'n' Foley. Or maybe the Funkin Foleys?

-Ross on Fandango: "Fandango is a lightning rod right now because many or perhaps a few vocal 'fans' don't like the TV persona even though they have yet to see it fully on display in a match of significance. I'm of the persuasion that I'll reserve my opinions until I actually see the talent get it on bell to bell. Chris Jericho is the perfect opponent to perform with Fandango at WM29 because Jericho is all about stealing the show a la the great [Shawn Michaels] no matter Y2J's role. Fandango can also expect Jericho to beat the hell out of him along the way. Believe that!"

Shore’s Slant: Ross has a point here, but WWE could ruin Fandango long before they get him to the ring. He's done well since it became obvious he was facing Jericho at WrestleMania, but prior to that the act was just weird.

-Ross on Ric Flair's health: "Got a text from Ric Flair early this morning and Naitch is feeling great and has been provided medication to dissolve the blood clot that is in his leg. The doctors are highly optimistic that the meds will do the trick and eliminate a potentially, dangerous issue. Ric and I will get together Wednesday evening in Jersey to catch up which is one of our WrestleMania traditions."

Shore’s Slant: More encouraging news about Flair.
