JR on Stone Cold, Kevin Nash, Victoria, Kelly Kelly, Mr. McMahon on RAW

jr.jpegIf I was asked once I was asked a dozen times who was going to induct Steve and I, for one, hope it is Ric Flair as that would be like Babe Ruth inducting Mickey Mantle into MLB’s HOF. Its not my call and who ever is finalized works for me because this matter isn’t about the presenter but the inductee.

The WWE TV folks did an amazing job on putting together the Stone Cold HOF video that aired last week. Amazing editing and great music. How one capsulizes Austin’s WWE career in a short video is essentially impossible. I can’t wait to see what the WWE comes up with for Steve for the HOF Ceremony.

My old friend Kevin Nash recently had his 27th surgery which is astonishing. I wish him a speedy recovery. Kevin is one of the wittiest and most intelligent guys in the business and parlayed being a former hoopster at Tennessee and a bouncer at the Cheetah Club in Atlanta to fame and fortune in the squared circle. Kevin was on the same high school All State basketball team in Michigan as Magic Johnson back in the day. I always think of Kevin when we visit Detroit which is his hometown.

I wish the WWE had a better opportunity to acknowledge Victoria wrestling her last match with the company this past Friday night on Smackdown. I had no clue that Victoria was having her last match until I arrived in Omaha the day of the event. Victoria has been one of the hardest working women in show business and worked diligently to perfect her in ring skills. I hope all the younger 8X10 type Divas will work as diligently as Victoria in learning their craft. Victoria had the challenge over the years with wrestling many Divas with far less in ring talent than did she but Victoria always made things work. I have great respect for her work ethic and her love of the business and wish her well in the next phase of her life. She had already started to get involved in other businesses over the past few years and she deserves nothing but happiness and success. Her exotic look always made my old heart beat a little faster. Hey, just because a happily married man is on a diet doesn’t mean he can’t look at the menu.

Kelly-Kelly just turned 22 which means in wrestle-speak that she is potentially on The King’s radar for only 3 more years.

Someone in Houston asked me what I thought about Mr. McMahon returning to Monday Night Raw this week from Chicago and I mentioned it would be akin to a “train wreck” which means it will be something most will want to see for whatever reason. I know I’m going to be watching because I am anxious to see the dynamic between the Chairman and his daughter Stephanie who is the Raw General Manager. I think the interaction should be compelling TV and Mr. McMahon’s return certainly adds more star power to Monday night. Monday Night Raw is getting plenty of WWE “love” which isn’t a bad thing and hopefully Friday Night Smackdown will get some of that TLC sooner than later.
