- Got my tickets for the NCAA Wrestling Championships today via Federal Express. Going to attend w/ WWE HOFer Jerry Brisco who is scouting the event for WWE. I’m going as a fan and to keep my Okie friend company.
With the departure of Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva‘s shelf life in question, a key discussion point behind the scenes in mixed martial arts is where the UFC can turn to generate pay-per-view dollars in 2014.
This week on the Sherdog Radio Network Rewind, in a “Down To Business” edition of the program, host Jack Encarnacao welcomes to guests with seasoned perspectives on how to build stars and storylines that keep the pay-per-view gears oiled.
Jim Ross‘ boyhood heroes were fellow Oklahomans Will Rogers and Mickey Mantle. The irony in idolizing an actor and a sports icon, then earning legendary status in the profession that combines both — pro wrestling — is hard to ignore.
But there’s a different throughline that Ross observes.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his Q&A section of JrsBarBq.com. Here are some questions he answered.
Rumors are spreading the return of Hulk Hogan making an appearance at Wrestlemania 30. Do you think the Hulkster has a match or two left in in? If so who would you like to see Hogan face?
