JR Blog: Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, Chris Benoit’s Son Wrestling & More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. Here are some highlights.

Chris Benoit questions: Funny how Chris Benoit questions to me run in spurts. I haven’t changed my take on the Benoit into the WWE HOF quandary. Chris doesn’t belong there. End of story. If inducted, it would all be about the last few, horrific hours of Chris’ life and that would not be fair for the family’s that were affected, the other inductees, or the fans. For those fans who loved Chris’ in ring work, and I consider myself one of those, then watch him on You Tube, etc and call it a day. I do not speak for WWE on any topic but I’d be surprised to see Chris any more prominent on WWE content in the future than he is now.

Chris Benoit’s son getting into professional wrestling: As for Chris’s son wanting to get in the pro wrestling business, I have mixed emotions. My gut says stay away, learn a trade, get educated and lead a normal, productive life. One the other hand, I’m not big on telling anyone to not attempt to live their dreams just as I did.

Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania: I look for Lesnar to play a major role in WM30 in New Orleans but in order to max out Brock’s box office appeal his TV persona really needs structured attention and to get ‘hot’ before April. Not overexposed….just get the Hereford Bull hot.

    does it really take that much to get heat for lesnar?? the guy’s a monster and they could have an idiot book a match for him and he’d still be believable right?

      Agreed. Like Andre the Giant in the ’70s, Brock Lesnar is an attraction and doesn’t need much heat or build up. I consider him one of the most exciting wrestlers for that reason, and the moment I know he’s on the card, I know I’ll be shelling out the money for the pay-per-view. Same for the DVDs. I think I’ve got almost every big match he had in WWE on DVD, along with every match he had in Japan. He’s a bona fide monster. What more do you need than that?

    I love JR, don’t get me wrong. But I think everything he said in this interview is bullsh*t. He needs to just stop commenting on Chris Benoit, and don’t EVER try to give his son advice unless he asks for it. And Lesnar doesn’t need heat, he is a legit badass monster who could drop anyone in the locker room in 30 seconds. All he has to do is show up, and people will pay to see him.
