WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com where he gives an update on the health of Jerry Brisco, the biggest wrestling star of the 80s, and the Michael Cole challenge. Below are the highlights:
JR on the biggest star of the 80s: When asked who was the biggest star of the 80’s, it’s an easy answer. Hogan. No brainer. Biggest star of 90’s? Little tougher. I’d submit Stone Cold for that distinction. Austin ruled late 90’s. Add Rock, Taker, HHH, HBK, etc to those subjective lists and one has a special roster. My criteria for this distinction is generating revenue BTW.
JR on Jerry Brisco: Oklahoma State is rolling which makes my pal Jerry Brisco happy. Jerry, who recently suffered his 4th stroke in about a year or so, is feeling good and will visit a highly regarded specialist later this week as the search is still on going to determine what’s causing the strokes. Jerry is upbeat and positive about his condition and situation. What a tragedy at Penn State.
JR on the Michael Cole Challenge: Many ask me what the Michael Cole Challenge is. I don’t have a clue but I’m pretty sure we’re going to find out sooner than later.
