Jim Ross provides an update on a former WWE Tough Enough winner who is fighting cancer, tells a potential stalker to steer clear of a WWE Diva, the approach he's taking with his health problems
Nov 4, 2009 - 03:38 PM


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

-Ross on former Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli: "Been exchanging emails with Matt Cappotelli, former WWE Tough Enough winner and developmental wrestler. Matt has been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer seemingly forever and hopes to finish chemo next summer which will mark three years of chemotherapy treatment. Matt's a warrior with an amazing spirit and is an inspiration with which to speak.

I always thought this kid had 'it' but he has been sidetracked with battling cancer which has had to become a huge part of Matt's life. Matt is an assistant manager at a Louisville health club and is also finishing his college degree at the University of Louisville in Exercise Physiology. I love Matt Cappotelli's mental and physical toughness and his undying Faith. What a great young man."

Powell's POV: We don't hear much about Cappotelli, so it's nice to get an update on his life.

-Ross on a potential stalker: "Some apparent whack job is emailing me to death, perhaps there are more than one, and is obsessed with me hooking him, I think it's a him, up with Mickie James. This isn't 'E-Harmony," pal, but a place to congregate and order BBQ products, etc. This person can't figure out why Mickie hasn't responded to his/her many, many attempts at reaching her. Duh. Did you ever think that just maybe you've scared the hell out of her? As Larry the Cable Guy might say, 'Let it go.'

Powell's POV: Well, at least we know what Rich Twilling has been up to during his week away.

-Ross on his own health: "My top priority remains getting healthy and then seeing where my next assignment will be. That 'next assignment' isn't something that I dwell on as it really doesn't matter until I'm well and ready to kick down the door and get back in the hunt."

Powell's POV: That's the approach to have. Health should always come first.

Other topics include upcoming WWE DVD releases, William Regal as a manager, the mysterious Brett Rogers. Plus, check out the BBQ product specials he has gone on with free shipping on several times.
