Jim Ross, Jr.



August 5, 2000

After a week's vacation and a serious automobile accident, Good Ol' J.R. Jr. is back with some news and opinion from under the white cowboy hat.

This Monday, RAW is WAR will be live from Madison Square Garden in New York and it's going to be hot! MSG is sold out, but WWF New York is open for business! Many WWF Superstars will be making appearances at WWF New York after RAW to mingle with fans.

Lita is really impressing a lot of people within the WWF. This young woman has the passion and desire to make it big in the WWF.

T&A is a team that is steadily improving.

Dean Malenko is an excellent Light Heavyweight champion. All the man needs is some challengers.

X-Pac and Road Dogg have an interesting competition going on. It wouldn't surprise me if these two ended up facing off against each other in the future.

This week I have a meeting to discuss the licensing of my steak sauce. Good Ol' J.R. Jr.'s steak sauce is going to knock the socks off the competition.

Congratulations to Chris Jericho and the Undertaker for getting married! It's all down hill from here guys.

The stable Shane McMahon has formed is full of talent and will definitely be a force to reckon with. However, Big Show needs to work on his ring work and his timing. Honestly, once he learns the psychology and mental game he'll be unstoppable. Show also needs to get his weight under control. From where I sit, at 350-375 lbs. he could be doing cartwheels and shooting fire out of his ass.

My daddy shipped some of his BBQ sauce to me and I have to say it is top notch. Keep bringing those BBQ sauce signs to the arenas.

There's a lot of disgruntled talent down at Turner's organization that want the opportunity in the WWF. These potential talents need to realize that their behaviorial problems won't be tolerated in the WWF.

Steven Richards will be adding more talent to his RTC group. I don't really like the man myself. Folks, censorship isn't in Good Ol' J.R. Jr.'s vocabulary and I hope it isn't in yours either.

The rumors that the WWF is giving up on Tazz are not true. This fine young man from Brooklyn has a great future in the WWF ahead of him. You can't believe everything you read on the Internet folks.

Triple H has had an incredible year so far. Nobody has had so many classic matches in one year since Ric Flair in 1989.

I want to say thank you to the many fans I met at WWF New York two weeks ago. I had an incredible time. WWF New York has a real party atmosphere to it.

I was saddened when I heard about the passing of Gordon Solie. Not a day has gone by where I haven't thought about him. As I'm sure many of you know, my daddy looked up to Gordon and patterned his annoucning style after him. He's definitely going to be missed.

Take care.

J.R. Jr.
