Jim Ross updated the blog section of The following items are among the highlights.

-Ross on the WWE Draft: "No huge surprises as any one who did not think that Monday Night Raw wasn't going to be enhanced more than any other brand simply wasn't paying attention. Raw is the No. 11 TV priority of WWE and rightfully so as it delivers the biggest audience in the longest standing time slot on the best medium to sell pay per views, cable TV. Raw will have John Cena, HHH, Batista, HBK, and MVP at their disposal to feature as fan favorites. That's five deep, at worst, plus perhaps an unknown will 'break through.' One can also assume that Raw will get the "pick of the litter" from FCW whenever that may be.

Powell's POV: The Raw lineup is stacked with star power, but I also like the look of the Smackdown roster. There's not as much star power on the Friday night show, which should force the creative team to create new stars to fill the voids left by the stars they lost to Raw. Friday night once again appears to be the wrestling-heavy show, as the brand came away with a strong group of workers.

-Ross on another Von Erich family member considering a wrestling career: "Kevin's son Ross, who really reminds me of Ross', late uncle Kerry, might be the next Von Erich to give wrestling a shot but that is only speculation based on what Kevin has told me about Ross' love of the business and his athletic abilities. Time will tell as Ross is still just a kid."

Powell's POV: It would be fantastic if the next wave of Von Erichs entered the business and provided fans with a happy ending to the family saga.
