JR comments on Batista, HBK & Bret Hart

Jim Ross recently posted an entry on his blog. Portion of the content are paraphrased. Here are the highlights.

On Batista: “I think it isn’t fair to compare Dave Batista to Brock Lesnar. Lesnar was so much younger when he started out the MMA process. Brock’s amateur wrestling background is non paralleled. Dave is a big, strong, athletic guy who has a competitive demeanor but can he acquire the necessary skills to perform at a sustainable, marketable level? Only time can tell. Batista is currently training in earnest to develop his MMA skills and if that can be accomplished it is likely that the former WWE star will sign with Strikeforce. I can see Dave fighting Bobby Lashley sometimes in the future. I wish Dave well and would certainly watch him fight if that day actually comes. I still think that exploring his movie opportunities and eventually returning to WWE is “The Animal’s” best options but I always encourage people to do what they feel is best for them.”

On Shawn Michael: “The last text I received from HBK – he said he was relaxing and enjoying being a Dad and a Husband and was having a great “family summer.” HBK continues to do a significant amount of church work as well. Shawn may be the first, big time wrestling superstar to ‘retire’ from pro wrestling. Precedent says it won’t happen but if Shawn does make a return to the ring, I know it will be a very special, well timed occasion.”

On Bret “The Hitman” Hart: “Got a nice email from Bret Hart recently. He is getting married in Calgary on July 24 (next Saturday), as I understand it. We will be sending Hitman more J.R.’s BBQ Sauce, Chipotle Ketchup and Beef Jerky to his home in Hawaii for a wedding gift. We have a standing invite from Bret to visit him in Hawaii any time which I hope to be able to take advantage of sooner than later.”
