The latest Jim Ross blog is online on the WWE Hall of Famer’s JR’s Bar-B-Q website; you can read some excerpts below:

Early Royal Rumble odds:

There is an early betting line on the ’16 Royal Rumble. I’m being serious. Where were all these betting lines on WWE events when I was in administration there? Probably a good thing it wasn’t around at least that I’m aware or I might have been guilty of ‘insider betting.’ BTW the favorites to win are entrant #1, go figure, and entrant #30. I’d lean toward Brock Lesnar as my favorite to win it all if he’s in it.

Can you make a valid argument that Lesnar shouldn’t be in the main event at Wrestlemania Texas?

The Rock:

Exchanged emails with The Rock while in Miami as he’s busy with a new baby girl and HBO’s ‘Ballers.’ I know of no one who seeming stays as busy as the Rock in the world of show biz. He’s a one man conglomerate who will be appearing at Wrestlemania Texas in April but I’m doubtful that he will be in a match but I hope that I’m wrong.

Kurt Angle in the WWE HOF:

I’d think that Kurt Angle going into the WWE Hall of Fame is a lead pipe cinch but when its the only question that I have. I’d love to see Kurt in a WWE retirement match and then be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame if and when WWE has the time and desire to make this matter a priority. I’d assume WWE inducts Kurt into the Hall likely before he wrestles for them in a high profile match at Wrestlemania. Simply speculating that WWE is leery of Kurt’s lingering neck issues but that’s merely my speculation.

I have no speculation that Kurt Angle isn’t a deserving WWE Hall of Famer in the future. How can that be debatable?

Weird way to call someone a sell-out. xD
He's not calling him a sell out, he's saying he stays very busy, how is that selling out?

Lol that was just a joke Baval.

Now why would JR say he doesnt see Rocky wrestling and why would Rocky say he is there to set a new attendance record if not wrestling?

Unless VKM and the inner circle believe Rocks mere presence will sell out without him needing to wrestle. How weird. Haha. Idiots.

Hopefully he is in a match.

Rock never used wwe as a levarage. To me that would be selling out. Rock never did, so therefore Rock never sold out. Do you know how many ppl who were making his kinda money, who would never return? Amazing he returned once. Considering how busy he is. He even returned at a house show. I agree Rock prob wont wrestle due to his movie career, and insurance issues. But never say never, right match possible.

I would love Angle in one more match at a Mania but that is highly doubtful. I think Vince would be far too worried about Angle permanently injuring himself or his neck to allow it to take place. As for the Hall of Fame? lets put it this way IF he didn't get in whether in the next couple years or ever I would be absolutely shocked.

Rock vs Angle would be pretty good hypothetically. One of my fav matches were them. Lesner winning rumble looks likely I agree. So is Reigns lesner looking more and more probable? Hope not. But seems logical. If Lesner does win rumble. Reigns wont be dropping before mAnia. But Reigns defending at mania, doesent seem so exciting. So for that reason alone. Rumble winner needs to be someone unpredictable. So not Lesner imo. Ambrose possibly. If Rocks wrestling I hope rock brock.

I was hoping for a "Angle vs Rock", and use to retire Kurt. If I was anyone I would want Rock to do at this point in 2016.

It makes sense cause Rock isn't looking to get very physical, while Angle has his injuries to watch over. Obviously a little late, but hopefully in 2017, Rock vs Angle, and Angle into HOF.


Obviously Rock will make HOF, hopefully he has a reitrement match that year. Then again, Rock once he has conquered the world, he might just come back for fun, we all know he will, just 1 last run. I think everyone should get 1 last run, like seeing Dudley Boyz do a long standing retirement tour, it leaves no regret or empty spaces. Like with Stone Cold there is so much regret, pity and remorse, that it sucks we never got closure, and a real sendoff like Flair.
