Jim Ross has posted a new blog update, which you can read in its entirety over at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Misawa’s Death: Shocking to hear how Misawa actually died in the ring which was eerily similar to the injury sustained by the late Christopher Reeve. Japanese medicine is unique to say the least and obviously utilizing Japanese medical treatment and Misawa delaying having his injured neck surgically repaired proved to apparently be his down fall. Damn shame. It is amazing that Japanese medicine is apparently far behind Japanese Technology.
Gerald Briscoe: First of all Gerald did not have a stroke. He fell ill on Sunday morning as his face became swollen and he was having difficulty talking. At first some thought he might have had an allergic reaction to either medication or food. It was also thought for a short while that he might have even had an attack of Bells palsy. After cat scans and MRI’s, it was discovered that Gerry had a very small hole in his heart that is being repaired on Wednesday utilizing a more non evasive type of surgery via going though his groin. This type of surgery is not unusual. Gerry also had a blockage in an artery in his neck that will be addressed via medication …. I have been communicating regularly with Gerry for the past few days and he is a fighter and will be just fine, I am confident, SOONER then later. (Sorry for that Sooner reference GB as we all know you are a loyal Oklahoma State Alum.)
Donald Trump: “One would assume that Donald Trump will eventually name a Raw General Manager and I’m guessing it will be someone that Mr. McMahon isn’t too fond of which covers ample territory. Will that announcement be made this Monday in Green Bay. I think we can rule out Bret Favre.
