WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross updated the blog section of The following items are among the highlights. To order J.R.'s BBQ products, visit

-Ross on Ric Flair: "No Naitch at Raw in Charlotte seemed to surprise some fans. Where was it ever officially inferred or teased that was going to occur? I know that there was ample internet speculation and I assume it was merely because Raw was emanating from Charlotte."

Powell's POV: I assume it was also due to the fact that Raw was in Charlotte. Flair was not even a backstage visitor at the event.

-Ross on Survivor Series: "Pleased that WWE is having a traditional, Survivor Series Elimination tag team bout, Team Foley vs. Team Punk, as a feature attraction/main event at the Survivor Series this year in Indianapolis. I've always enjoyed seeing multiple conclusions and how teams respond to being a 'man down' or more as these bouts progress. Elimination tag bouts are not used that much during the year so seeing a well promoted, main event level one at Survivor Series is encouraging to this fan."

Powell's POV: I enjoy a good elimination tag match, but the reveal of the team members on Monday felt a little flat. I suppose it didn't help to hold the announcements during the final segment of a three-hour marathon show. I'm surprised John Cena isn't on Team Foley, but my guess is he will face Dolph Ziggler at the show.

-Ross on Edge: "Great seeing Adam Copeland aka Edge for a few minutes Monday afternoon  in Charlotte. Adam had just returned from a UK trip and dropped by to say hello to his many friends within WWE. He looked great, even well rested coming off a long flight, and was, as always, in great spirits. Great example of what passion and hard work will do for a lifelong fan of the genre who grew up in Ontario and currently resides in the Asheville, NC area. Adam will always be one of my absolute favorite signees and the WWE HOFer is a credit to the business. Plus, he's hooked on JR's Chipotle Ketchup!"

Powell's POV: Edge posed for a photo with Beth Phoenix just moments prior to her final WWE appearance. He will be undergoing neck surgery one week from today. Here's hoping he has a speedy recovery.
