WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his blog, which you can read in its entirety at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

WWE Network Launch Rumors: “Excited to read all the rumors regarding the long awaited WWE Network which looks as if it will launch in 2014. It only makes sense to launch the network during WrestleMania season and take advantage of all the media opportunities to sell/promote both the network and WM30.”

“If that philosophy is accurate, that would have the Network launching in February or March. All that is TBD but it’s been an exhaustive, expensive work in progress for many individuals for a long, long time. If WWE’s PPV’s all move to the Network then the chances of this entity becoming a significant success early increase greatly.”

The Need For Heroes & Villains In Wrestling: “How many great movies or TV shows have you seen or how many books have you read to where there wasn’t a definitive hero or villain. Villains can take many shapes and forms whether it be war, disease, a bully, a coward, a cheat, etc. Great villains in the sports entertainment genre are people that a fan will pay to see them get their ass beat.”

“It’s a simple formula that is timeless.”

“In real life there is a fine line, in many cases, between good and evil. However, TV wrestling isn’t real life. It’s show biz and most every show biz presentation that you or I have ever enjoyed had a hero and a villain component.”
