With Survivor Series only a couple days away, Good Ol' J.R., Jr. brings the content to kick off this eventful weekend.

TV was another knockout this week. It seems to me that Rikishi and The Game have The Rock and Stone Cold's number, but we'll see if they can get the job done this Sunday at Survivor Series.

The rumors running rampant on the Internet about the television writing team are blown out of proportion.

I'm really interested in the Undertaker-Kurt Angle WWF Championship this Sunday as Taker holds a pinfall victory over the Olympic Hero. Kurt hasn't been featured as much as he should considering his he WWF Champion, but a win would really do some good over a Superstar the caliber of the Undertaker.

Over 50,000 tickets have been sold for Wrestlemania X-Seven at the AstroDome. A $2.4 million gate in advance so far, which makes it the biggest gate ever for wrestling in the U.S. When it's all said and done, it could be a $3 million gate, which is mind-boggling.

It would be great to see my Sooners go 10-0 with a win over Texas Tech this Saturday.

Big Show had a lot to say about wrestling writers this past week on the Ohio Valley Wrestling website. Show doesn't take criticizm too well, but once he makes his way back to the big time with an improved attitude and an improved look, that criticizm is bound to turn into praise.

From where I sit, Too Cool is the most underrated team in the WWF. With the right opportunity, this duo could be the top team in the WWF. A little mic time wouldn't hurt as well.

The lack of obese, vulgar, disgusting, Hawaiian shirt wearing, color commentators this week was a breath of fresh air to Good Ol' J.R., Jr.

I have to mention that an interview with my dear old daddy Good Ol' J.R. will be on The LAW this Sunday night on Talk 640 in Canada. However, I'm still a little bitter over my steak sauce recipe not appearing in the WWF Cookbook.

The news that Jesse Ventura will be calling XFL games this coming season is great news all-around. No doubt the comparisons to Dennis Miller will be made, but Ventura is of a different breed and I'm sure Saturday nights watching the XFL will be an awesome experience.

With all the great business moves the WWF has made this year, such as, holding Wrestlemania X-Seven at the AstroDome, hiring Jesse Ventura as an XFL commentator, WWF New York, and the general state of the World Wrestling Federation, if don't own WWF stock, you're missing out on some big earnings.

Call it a hunch, but I got a feeling the match pitting Kane against Chris Jericho will be a slobbnocker. This will be one to watch this Sunday at Survivor Series live on Pay-Per-View.

From where I sit, the team of Road Dogg and K-Kwik show a lot of potential--in and out of the ring. I have a feeling this is a team that will turn a lot of heads.

Survivor Series looks like a top-notch card from top to bottom. Triple H vs. Stone Cold, Rikishi vs. The Rock, Undertaker vs. Kurt Angle for the WWF Championship, Kane vs. Chris Jericho, Lita vs. Ivory for the WWF Women's Championship, and a couple of traditional Survivor Series matches have been signed for this coming Sunday. There's only one way to see Survivor Series and that is by calling your cable operator and order!

Have a great weekend and enjoy Survivor Series!

Take care.

J.R., Jr.
