Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Some highlights:
Ted DiBiase’s Ear: “The ear controversy. What’s up with Ted DiBiase’s nasty looking ear? From what I was told the ear got infected for some unknown reason and when young Ted went to get it checked out the doctor discovered that DiBiase had tubes inserted in his ears as a child and they were never removed! However, if you are operating some of the dubious wrestling websites that exist in cyberspace feel free to make up what you choose regarding this matter much like you have about my professional future.”
SmackDown vs. Raw 2010 Roster: “If you are wondering why some WWE Superstars are on the Smackdown vs Raw 2010 video game and others aren’t it’s because this particular decision has to be made long in advance and several months ago the point of no return and going with what was there came and went. I had the same issues when I was the head of Talent Relations and made those decisions. One is damned if they do and damned if they don’t when one has to work with such long lead times. This matter will never be resolved in my view and there will always be some wrestlers who make the game that don’t deserve to and some that are left off that deserve to be included.”
WrestleMania in Miami?: “I read where Miami, Florida is interested in hosting Wrestlemania in 2011 or 2012. I assume many cities are in the bidding process as ‘Mania brings in big money to the host city. However, if the trend is to go into stadiums for Wrestlemania events, how does one address the issue of rain especially with South Florida’s lovely but rainy, at times, climate. No, I did not forget WM24 in Orlando but that was a hold one’s breath deal as it related to the weather and how to deal with rain not only for the talents but for the manyÂ fans who traveled thousands of miles and paid healthy dollars to attend the show. Don’t get me wrong, I love visiting Miami (well, last January wasn’t so great when the Tim Tebow Gators trounced my Sooners) and have for years but it would seem to me, and no one has asked me to offer this opinion, that cities with domed stadiums would have the greatest chance of hosting the event.
