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

-Ross on Jeff Hardy: "Jeff Hardy has taken down his Twitter page which is a smart move. The less Jeff says about his legal entanglements the better. I do not believe for a moment that Jeff Hardy is a 'drug trafficker' or 'dealer.' I don't know why Jeff allegedly was in possession of the drugs in question, there are lots of avenues of speculation, but hopefully there is be a viable explanation. Nonetheless this apparent mistake will hopefully be quickly and efficiently addressed so that Jeff can put this embarrassing ordeal behind him and focus on more positive things including his own physical and mental well being."

Powell's POV: I don't think anyone believes Jeff was actually selling the drugs. I wouldn't be surprised if Jeff eventually out a plea agreement and the trafficking charges become possession charges. Just a guess, though.

-Ross on Matt Hardy: "I saw Matt Hardy in Hamilton but never spoke to him about his brother's situation as I figured that Matt had already been quizzed by enough people on that matter. We spoke but not about the recent controversy as both Matt and Jeff know that I am supportive of them and have been for years since I signed them to their first WWE contract."

Powell's POV: Fair point.

-Ross on Great Khali: "Apparently after what was taped in Hamilton on Tuesday night and that will air on Friday Night Smackdown, the Great Khali will likely have to undergo knee surgery sooner than later. Khali's wheels weren't great to start with and they were done no favors Tuesday night in a match with Kane. I hope that WWE sends Khali to Dr. James Andrews to handle this matter. Dr. Andrews can repair the damage, hopefully, but Khali is the one that will have to be diligent in his rehab/physical therapy."

Powell's POV: As I noted earlier today, Khali had a poor reputation the last time around for the way he rehabbed following his last knee surgeries. At this point, is there a reason why any athlete wouldn't go to James Andrews? He's widely regarded as the best in the world at what he does, so it's only logical to use him as a surgeon if you have the ability to do so.
