Opening match: The opening tag match was arguably my favorite match of the night. Lots of action and perhaps even too much action outside the ring for a first bout when considering what was coming with the HIAC being used twice later in the night. Nonetheless, all three teams worked hard, all had their moments and all seemed to deliver in a positive way.
THIS Saturday, September 21, 7 p.m.

Former WWE official Wes Adams has published a new column at PWMania.com. Adams talks about about Jim Ross‘ WWE retirement and questions if this is an end of an era. Here is an excerpt from his article:
“WWE has been evolving from a “wrestling company” to an “entertainment company” for years. They would probably even argue that they have never been a “wrestling company” to begin with. It’s sad to watch strong WRESTLING people like Ross and Matt Striker be released and sent on to their future endeavors.”

On Easter Sunday morning a massive hail storm struck our home and destroyed our roof and gutters. Because we have had so much bad weather including a great deal of rain, the roofers are here today and started hammering incessantly at 6:30 this morning. Nails and shingles particles are everywhere. I’m essentially under “house arrest.” Sadly, I can’t even access my grill but “one can’t grieve forever” as the King used to espouse so, here we go..
I hope that everyone is enjoy this special day and for American’s it’s a holiday earmarked to honor all the men, women and their families who made amazing sacrifices to guarantee the freedoms that our country enjoys. As you celebrate with friends and family today please remember those that paid the ultimate price for our safety and way of life. Let’s grill…
@WWE Raw originates from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and, if I can be serious for a moment (Thanks to my friend @LanceStorm) tonight’s live broadcast should feature a fun atmosphere if the Calgary fans are on their usual game. (What’s the over/under for King’s ‘Bizzaroland’ references?)
JR’s Sunday Blog, UFC159, Bones, John Cena injury, Sonnen to WWE?, Lou Thesz, Stock Up on JR’s for Grilling Season!
After storms destroyed our home’s roof, guttering, etc a few days a go, we are now bracing for a sunny, 80 degree day or two here in the bipolar weather center of the universe, Norman, Oklahoma. Let’s grill….
Enjoyed UFC 159 last night on PPV from Newark headlined by the incomparable @jonnybones aka Jon Jones first round defeat of Chael Sonnen. Jones has upped his game and his long, athletic frame is problematic for any one who can’t match up with Bones physically. The former amateur wrestling star prospect, at least for the present time, is his own worst opponent as I don’t see any one on the current UFC map that can handle him including the legendary Anderson Silva.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety atJRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:
Obnoxious Fans At The WWE HOF Ceremony: ”The loud and obnoxious yelling and taunts from some attention starved morons put a damper on the evening especially when Maria Menounos was inducting Bob Backlund. The same stereotypes that many fans detest that are unfairly, at times, hung on them from the main stream media was well deserved by a handful of tools who just had to be heard and noticed. I wish security was stationed in the cheap seats and would quickly escort those obnoxious fans away from the event. One wold think that a ‘real fan’ would have more respect for the overall event than to cause so many negative disturbances. I’m all for fans cheering and having fun but off color remarks from the peanut gallery isn’t warranted at an event such as the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.”
Ricky Steamboat, Sgt Slaughter, Jim Ross, and Mick Foley just a few moments ago confirmed their plans to be in Las Vegas for the 2013 Cauliflower Alley Club reunion! Mick Foley, due to scheduling conflicts will only be at the reunion Monday ONLY. Mick will attend the wrestling show Monday night and pay tribute to the late Paul Bearer.
This is sure to be another sell-out reunion. We are getting down to crunch time on the ticket reservations. We are getting closer to the ticket cut-off due to the fire department permit for the occupancy of the Banquet room. So if you haven’t reserved your ticket yet, you need to do it NOW!
There has been over 800 room nights booked at the Gold Coast Hotel through the CAC code if that tells you anything!
