In a new blog post on his official website, Jim Ross gave his thoughts on the Divas Beat the Clock challenge on RAW, along with the Jimmy Snuka murder charges and more.
On Jimmy Snuka’s murder charges: “The Jimmy Snuka alleged murder of his former lady friend three decades ago is going to continue to garner ample publicity. WWE has separated themselves from the Hall of Famer which is really the only thing that they could do in this instance. Jimmy is 72, has stomach cancer and is allegedly battling dementia which may equate to a very unique trial and legal process before all is said and done. I’d assume he will also have to have a public defender as his attorney as the State attempts to prove that Snuka his lady friend decades ago. I could see Snuka declared unfit to stand trial which would outrage many who have a vested interest in the case and subsequent trial that is if it actually goes to trial.”
On the Divas Beat the Clock Challenge on RAW: “WWE did their ballyhooed Divas, UGH, division no favors Monday night and many within the business agree with me. All talents need ample time to tell a story. No story and no one gets over.”
On Hogan’s apology: “If I was advising Hulk Hogan I’d suggest him to lay low and let things settle down. He does deserve forgiveness, as we all do, if he’s sincere and I want to believe that Hulk is sincere but trying to promote himself to have “one more match” is not advisable. Just my two cents.”
Here’s a little unknown fact for ya’ – did you know that Jack Swagger smokes cigarettes? The only other WWE Superstars that we know of who smoke (or used to smoke) are The Big Show and Randy Orton. If you’re interested, you can click here to see a photo of Swagger puffing a smoke (cigarette).
