Jim Ross Blog: Hulk Hogan’s WWE Return, New Japan/ROH Relationship, DDP

The following are highlights from the latest online blog by WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross:

On his RINGSIDE live show and a surprise guest at his show in NYC: “The VIP tickets for next Saturday March 1 RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross are sold out for the 8 pm show and there are only about a dozen left for the early show at the Gramercy Theater. Tickets are still available nonetheless for both shows at http://www.ticketmaster.com. Hope to see you in NYC on Saturday March 1.”

“We might have some ‘surprise’ guests pay us a visit at one of both of the NYC shows.”

On Diamond Dallas Page’s appearance on ABC’s “Shark Tank” show: “Great PR Friday night for DDP on ABC’s Shark Tank. No deal made but a helluva segment on prime time, national TV for the hardworking Diamond Dallas Page…if that is his real name. DDP Yoga is magic. DDP will be guesting soon on the Ross Report Podcast as will Jake Roberts.”

On the relationship between New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) and Ring Of Honor (ROH): “Interested in the New Japan relationship with ROH. ‘Curious’ may be a more accurate description. Hope the joint effort works well for all involved.”

On Hulk Hogan’s WWE return: “As I wrote in this space many, many weeks ago, it’s a smart move by WWE to come to an arrangement with @HulkHogan for WM30 and beyond, I assume. I’m unaware of any details but I see Hulk as a great PR vehicle for the WWE Network and to appear a selected events. I do not see Hogan needing to wrestle to add value to WWE efforts.”
