Jim Ross vents about the movie trailers that air during WWE programming, reveals whether he'll be in Calgary for Raw on Monday, and follows up on how much money UFC champ Brock Lensar was offered by WWE
Aug 8, 2009 - 10:41 AM


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

-Ross on the movie trailers: "Wow, I feel that I am much more knowledgeable of what movies are playing and why I should go see them after watching an abundance of wrestling this week. I have no major issues with movie promotion or any other paying promotion on a wrestling show but the ad agencies should at least have the common sense to change the commercials from time to time. After about he third or fourth time one sees the ad it ceases to sell tickets. I started tapping on Tuesday."

Powell's POV: That's what DVRs are for! That said, as someone who watches the majority of the shows live, I feel J.R.'s pain.

-Ross on Monday's Raw: "This just in.....I got word Friday morning that I WILL be in Calgary Monday night to tape a WWE Superstars bout, which will likely be done after Monday night Raw due to the early start time. I think my two fondest memories of traveling to Calgary was flying there once to do a series of vignettes with Bret Hart prior to his Ironman Match with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania on a trip where Stu Hart had me in the dungeon 'depriving blood from your brain.' Plus, being in Calgary for the Calgary Stampede was really a great experience."

Powell's POV: How ass backwards and unorganized is WWE that no one can give the announcers more than a couple days of notice that they need to work an extra day? For that matter, I'm still curious to know why WWE feels the need to tape the Smackdown brand WWE Superstars matches on Mondays rather than at the Smackdown tapings on Tuesday. It seems like a major inconvenience for the broadcast team and the wrestlers involved.

-Ross on Brock Lesnar: "Yes, the story that I blogged recently about the WWE NOT offering Brock Lesnar something like $40M for a seven year deal is accurate. Those numbers are not even close. Lesnar was likely offered a $1M guarantee with the opportunity to earn much more. There's a legit chance that Lesnar could have earned close to that much over a 7 year period as he made it north of the $1M mark faster than any one, I think, in WWE history."

Powell's POV: Very few WWE wrestlers make that type of money, but it's possible he would have if the company has gone through a boom period and he was a major reason why. By the way, J.R. joined me in openly wishing for WWE to produce a DVD on Brock's career.

Other topics include: C.M. Punk, Mike Knox, a hilarious line regarding wrestlers with faux tans, and Calgary Stampede wrestling.
