Jim Ross comments on Mike Tyson and the WWE wrestler he followed as a kid, the death of Tony Halme (a/k/a Ludvig Borga), former WWE Diva's new reality show
Jan 11, 2010 - 02:23 PM


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

-Ross on Mike Tyson: "Mike Tyson, as we have mentioned here before grew up as a HUGE WWWF fan as a kid in Brooklyn, was a big Chief Jay Strongbow fan as best as I remember from my conversations with the one time 'Baddest Man on the Planet.' Mike even told me of making his own toy wrestling ring so he could re-enact what he saw on WWWF TV. Tyson likely missed a big payday or two by not venturing into a pro wrestling ring on PPV back in the day."

Powell's POV: It's hard to imagine Tyson reenacting the action. I wonder if it looked anything like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson reenacting a passionate moment between Peter and Lois Griffin via action figures on last week's edition of "The Family Guy." For those who missed it, you can check out The Rock footage at You Tube.

-Ross on the death of Tony Halme: "Too bad to hear about the untimely death of Tony Halme aka Ludvig Borga who had a brief stint in WWE many years ago. Ludvig had a great look and was a fair hand in the ring. I do remember that we had to make sure and cover up an 'SS' tattoo that he had on his calf which was not a flattering choice of ink and was extremely politically incorrect for any generation."

Powell's POV: An "SS" tattoo? Ugh. Here's hoping it was a youthful mistake and not something the former Finnish parliament member truly believed in.

-Ross on a former WWE Diva's reality show: "Talked recently to Stacey Carter, former bride of Jerry Lawler better known as Stacey 'The Kat' Carter back in the day in WWE who is now in the real estate business in the Ft. Myers, Florida area. The Mrs. and I are planning on heading to that area when it warms up there and Stacey is lending us a hand with finding us a place to stay.

"She said that she has a reality TV show in the works with CMT that it has a chance of being picked up. It will center around Stacey, her former career in wrestling and her new career in real estate and will feature cameos from recognizable, veteran wrestling stars. I hope that she has a hit on her hands and more importantly that the show gets a chance."

Powell's POV: I met Carter at an indy show last year and she was excited about the reality show project that she was working on. It will feature multiple pro wrestling personalities. She also noted that she and Lawler get along well these days despite their tough breakup.

Other topics include WWE Hall of Fame rumor, the death of Jerry Lawler's former tag partner, upcoming MMA shows.
