-Ross on Chris Jericho: "Future WWE HOFer Chris Jericho is apparently done with WWE for the time being to tour with his band Fozzy which was his plan all along. I wish Chris the best in his 2nd passion and look forward to seeing him again in WWE which I do think will happen at a time to be determined in the future. Jericho vs. RVD Monday night was superb especially for a cold, fan favorite bout that can often times be challenging for announcers to call."

Shore’s Slant: Even Jericho said he was done with WWE "for now," so expect him back again. I would think before the end of the year.

-Ross on CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30: "Amazing that people actually think that I know what will Main Event WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. Truthfully, I don't, and equally as truthful if I did I wouldn't spill the beans. I will say this because I've been asked this question a lot lately, IF Daniel Bryan ever faced CM Punk in a WrestleMania main event level bout, I wouldn't want to be the talents that had to follow it."

Shore’s Slant: Ain't that the truth.

-Ross on his favorite broadcast partner: "Who is my all-time favorite broadcast partner? It's one of the many questions that I get asked repeatedly on Twitter @JRsBBQ. I've been really lucky to have worked with some amazingly talented men… And then there is Bobby Heenan, Wow. The most brilliant, comedic mind that I ever worked with but he could still be a stinging antagonist. Without question, when one takes wrestling, managing, broadcasting, and simply being a TV character into question, who was ever better than Bobby 'the Brain' Heenan? For my money, 'The Weasel' was the best, three tool talent in the history of the business. I don't even know who is in second place. No one that I've ever met in all three areas ever rivaled Bobby's timing other than The King."

Shore’s Slant: Ross mentions almost every broadcast partner he has ever had in the blog. He doesn't specifically mention Heenan as his favorite, but he does put him over big so that's why I chose him. Remember, these are just highlights of a much longer blog that I encourage you to read.
