Jim Ross Blog: HBK As Refere, Mysterio's Return, Ziggler & Cody

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is back with another blog update, which you can read in its entirety at In this entry, JR answered a number of questions sent in from his followers on Twitter. Here are some highlights of what JR said about:

When is Rey Mysterio returning to the ring? “Rey had major knee surgery and had had multiple knee surgeries in the past. I’d merely guess that he will be back in a few months but I have no way of knowing. It’s seemingly not going to be at WM28. It’s better to err on the side of caution when it comes to matters such as this.”

Does HBK being named referee to the HHH-Taker HIAC match take away from the match? “Of course not. I think it adds to the drama and poses many more questions than answers which is essential to the build to any major bout. @ShawnMichaels is a show stealer and to think that his presence at WrestleMania, the site of some of his greatest performances, won’t be impactful is absurd. The question is how impactful and to who? HBK has great history with both combatants which makes Shawn wearing the stripped shirt even more compelling.”

Who are two WWE superstars who seem to be catching on? “Cody Rhodes and Dolph Ziggler are both evolving nicely. I also think Jack Swagger has unlimited potential. In the territory days, these three would be prime examples of athletes who would earn success for a few years in various territories before being brought to WWE. The system has changed but taking time to evolve hasn’t. Many fans have no patience and many talents don’t put in the extra work in and out of the ring to get to the next level. These talents do and will be main event stars at some point unless injuries or other issues arise.”
