Jim Ross Blogs About What He’s Thankful For Heading Into 2013

0

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted his final blog entry of 2012 on Monday and gave his thoughts on what the new year has in store for the WWE Universe. This is a highly recommended read that includes JR’s thoughts on the dangers of a complacent locker room, what each man has to do in order to reach their full potential and why WWE’s future is so bright. You can read the full blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what JR said he’s thankful for:

@CMPunk never taking no for an answer and grinding it out to become, arguably, WWE’s MVP in 2012.

Guys like @WWEDanielBryan getting his shot and taking advantage of it. He’s one of my favorite wrestlers. When was the last time Daniel Bryan had a ‘bad’ match? Plus, Bryan knew he that had to learn to verbally communicate better to get to the next level and he has.

Long time indy wrestlers like @AntonioCesaro who paid their dues many times over before finally getting to perform at the highest level within his profession. Cesaro is a beast with whom I have great respect.

@HeelZiggler who is so athletically gifted and is beginning to put it all together especially on the mic. I fully expect Ziggler to have a banner 2013 if he stays healthy as Dolph competes at a very physical level.

@WadeBarrett finally being healthy. He’s a keeper and is a smart athlete who will do what it takes to elbow his way to the top and to do what is professionally necessary to stay there.

@WWESheamus is a beloved throwback in our business. Completely professional, a role model for the younger talents and a tough athlete who has not even scratched the surface as to how good he can be. If WWE had a locker room full of talents like Sheamus, they would be ecstatic.

@JohnCena for continuing to do what he believes and for pulling the WWE wagon. John’s Make A Wish work alone will get him to heaven.

@CodyRhodesWWE for turning the corner. Love his upside and hope that he pushes himself to achieve the greatness for which he seems destined.

@TheDamienSandow for never quitting on his dreams.

@JCLayfield for taking some friendly fire at me on @WWE TV and for taking JR’s Beef Jerky along with him on his mountain climbing adventures. John has made WWE TV better since his return. But he’s still a Texan.

@RealKingRegal for spending so much time with me and helping me to keep learning about the business that we both love. Mr. Regal is a wonderful teacher, mentor and historian of the mat game. He’s a valuable asset to the future growth of WWE Talent Development.

@Fgbrisco aka Jerry Brisco for battling his way to good health and for having amazing relationships in the amateur wrestling world that benefits WWE every day and for many years to come. Jerry is a part of my Okie family.

@steveaustinBSR simply for being a great friend and for always keeping in touch no matter how busy he is or where he is.

@shawnMichaels for the man he has become. Shawn is an inspiration to many for the way he lives his life and for what he’s overcome. HBK looked into the mirror and with God’s help changed his life to one that inspires many of us.
