Sherdog Rewind Radio presents: Down To Business with Jim Ross and Dave Meltzer
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 is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. As always, you can purchase JR’s BBQ products on WWEshop.com.

- Getting lots of feedback on the blog that I wrote about the WWE and CM Punk matter. Your opinion is just as valid as mine but no issue can be resolved in any arena without communication and the desire to communicate.
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? Not new rumors actually. I don’t see him trying to have a match. That would be sad, risky & isn’t necessary for Hulk to contribute to an event.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry about last night’s Hell In a Cell pay-per-view. Here are some highlights from this entry:
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.

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?)
