Jim Ross Blog: Brisco Scouting for WWE This Week, E:60 at the WWE PC, CM Punk, More

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with a new blog on jrsbarbq.com. As always, you can purchase JR's BBQ products on WWEshop.com. Here are some highlights from this entry:

- WWE really needs to hit a home run on RAW this week to build some much needed momentum for the Elimination Chamber. During a three hour RAW broadcast there is SO much info disseminated that it's challenging for any viewer of the three hour broadcast to leave the show at signoff and remember every thing that has been thrown at them. 15 commercial breaks doesn't help matters but that's simply the way it is and is not WWE's fault.

- Many have asked but I'm unaware of any new, @CMPunk news. I'm still hopeful that a mutually agreed upon resolution can be worked out sooner than later. I'd love to see Punk steal the show at WM30 and then chill for as long as it takes to get him back on WWE TV in a win-win scenario. If Punk wanted to take off until WM31, simply plan for it. The guy is too talented, has had a tremendous amount of TV time, etc invested in him and the roster is too thin to not see Punk back at some point.

I know if I ever do a show in Chicago I'd LOVE for CM Punk to be my special guest/MC and grill me with questions. Maybe we could take in a Cubs game and eat at Lisa Varon's Squared Circle eatery while in the Windy City.

As I've said Punk is a favorite of mine and I'd have loved to see him back in the day as one of Cowboy Bill Watts bookers.

- Although I am no longer affiliated with WWE, I can't logically understand why any wrestling fan, unless they simply can't afford the approximate 35 cents a day, wouldn't want to try the WWE Network for 6 months at a cost of $9.99 per month. I'm ordering it w/o question. I don't have copies of all the WCW PPV's that I did that I'd like to go back and listen to again.

- Gerald Brisco is in Columbus, Ohio scouting for WWE at a major amateur wrestling event. Gerald and I are attending the NCAA Division 1 Nationals in OKC in March....GB as a WWE scout and me as a fan. BTW it was in Columbus, Ohio that I was 'grilled as in BBQ'ed' by Kane AND had a cinder block busted over my head in another losing effort to Eric Bischoff which left me defeated and bloody. In other words, a normal in ring outing for Ol J.R. :)

- The ESPN E60 piece that is going to air soon re: the WWE Performance Center should really be good. ESPN had virtual, unlimited access on multiple days of shooting at NXT. ESPN has hours of footage to utilize.
