Jim Ross Blog: Rock-Cena, Flair’s Health, Funk Inducting Foley, Fandango-Jericho

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR wrote about:

Terry Funk Inducting Mick Foley:

“Great choice by Mick Foley to select Terry Funk to induct Mr. Foley’s baby boy at the 2013 WWE HOF induction ceremony. The Funker is Mick’s mentor and idol. I think it’s pretty cool when a Hall of Fame inductee can actually have their all time favorite wrestler, their father like figure within the business and their role model as it relates to in ring style and approach to the game induct them.”

Ric Flair’s Medical Situation:

“Got a text from Ric Flair early this morning and Naitch is feeling great and has been provided medication to dissolve the blood clot that is in his leg. The doctor’s are highly optimistic that the meds will do the trick and eliminate a potentially, dangerous issue. Ric and I will get together Wednesday evening in Jersey to catch up which is one of our WrestleMania traditions.”

Fandango vs. Y2J:

“Fandango is a lightning rod right now because many or perhaps a few vocal ‘fans’ don’t like the TV persona even though they have yet to see it fully on display in a match of significance. I’m of the persuasion that I’ll reserve my opinions until I actually see the talent get it on bell to bell. Chris Jericho is the perfect opponent to perform with Fandango at WM29 because Jericho is all about stealing the show ala the great @ShawnMichaels no matter Y2J’s role. Fandango can also expect Jericho to beat the hell out of him along the way. Believe that!”

The Rock vs. John Cena:

“Enjoying the serious nature that the Rock/Cena rivalry has taken the past few weeks and it is a departure from 2012 or so it seems to me. Closing a WrestleMania with such high expectations and having a ‘different’ match than last year are tremendous responsibilities notwithstanding the fact that the match is for the WWE Title which should be the primary issue. Cena vs. Rock is a target of varying levels of controversy from some fans but pales in comparison to what their own peers will place upon the show closers in their own matches at WM29.”

      I second this. Jericho is not at that point in his career quite yet. He has continued to change through ought his career, and has done a fantastic job of staying young. Above all else he is still useful in the bigger picture in my opinion, so why he would job to some idiot that cant seem to decide how his name is said (he changes the way he says it slightly, quite frequently).

      Don’t get me wrong – I don’t hate Fondoozle at all, I just think that it would be best if Jericho won this one. Did anyone hear the pop he got for the first tackle on Raw? I’m surprised that no body has mentioned it, but it was an absolutely insane pop and possibly the “moment” of the show.

      Personally I find absolutely nothing wrong with this match up, assuming the very limited offence and bumps we’ve seen from Doozlefon thus far is an indicator of how he wrestles. I think that the personalities for both wrestlers are just right for this to be an interesting match. I always liked these ego vs ego type matchups, especially when they are agile wrestlers.

    Should be a great match! We all know what Y2J can do, and I’ve seen enough of Faaaaahhhhnnnn Daaaaaahhhhhhnn Gooooooo on Youtube etc to think they can put on a good show. It’s actually one of the matches I’m looking forward to on this WM card because too many of the other matches seem too predictable this year! For example making Brock v HHH a Career threatening match for Trips was dumb!
