Jim Ross comments on Jonathan Coachman leaving WWE for ESPN, Jesse Ventura's political decision, Brooke Hogan posing nude
Jim Ross updated the blog section of JRsbarbq.com. The following items are among the highlights.
-Ross on Jonathan Coachman leaving WWE for ESPN: "It was great seeing Jonathan Coachman for a few minutes Sunday afternoon at the Nassau Coliseum and getting to meet his new, baby daughter who is beautiful for the record. Coach is leaving the WWE and will begin a new career with ESPN and will be moving to the Bristol area in the near future."
Powell's POV: It's official. Coach got the job. Good for him. This has been rumored for quite some time, but this confirms that he's leaving the company and heading to ESPN.
-Ross on Jesse Ventura: "Jesse Ventura not running for political office from Minnesota did not surprise me. After upsetting political traditions by winning the Governor’s race in Minnesota in the late 90’s, Jessie has build what seems to be a nice life for himself and his family writing a few books, lecturing, etc which I personally think fits his life style at this stage of his life.
"Being a Senator is hard, often times thankless work especially when one is not a member of America’s tired, two party system that looks out for their own rather than for the citizens of this country. I think Ventura made the right call and should enjoy his life, take on projects that he likes that aren’t long term commitments, and generally enjoy the fruits of his labor. ( I kinda like that concept.)"
Powell's POV: Jesse made the right call and got his ego stroked by appearing on the "Larry King Live" show a couple times to spout off his political opinions. It would have been very interesting here in Minnesota had he run for office, but I'm with J.R. in that I'm not surprised he decided not to enter.
-Ross on Brooke Hogan consider posing for Playboy "Is Brooke Bollea Hogan actually considering posing for Playboy Magazine? First of all, I have zero issues with Playboy Magazine but wouldn’t one think that the timing of this particular matter helps no one but Playboy? What’s next, Nick in semi prison garb in Playgirl magazine? Can everyone, all at one time, say…"LAY LOW"? Leave the media crazy, TMZ-like radar screen and watch public perception improve….if that matters and perhaps it doesn’t. There was a fan’s sign in Philly Tuesday that read, 'Hulk We Still Love You.'
Powell's POV: Lay low? The Hogans don't know know the meaning of those words. As for Nick posing for Playgirl in prison garb, please stop giving them ideas, J.R.
