Jim Ross posted his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com. Here are some highlights:
Brock Lesnar re-signing with WWE:
"I'm sure that Brock's family and closest friends participated in the decision-making process but at the end of the day the final, final decision had to be made by the man himself. A younger Brock, full of P&V, might have made a different decision but the responsible husband, loving father, son and friend looked at it from a different point of view.
"Brock Lesnar made the best decision for him and everyone close to him by staying in WWE and earning what I'm sure is a magnificent salary for working what is essentially a part-time schedule. Plus, by having a part time schedule it will manage how much exposure that he will get to ensure that Brock remains an attraction and will not allow him to be overexposed as so many in his profession are in today's marketplace."
WrestleMania getting more interesting after Lesnar's re-signing:
"While many complained about the 'build;' to this WrestleMania being tepid in the eyes of some, the game changed drastically when Lesnar declared his intentions on ESPN Tuesday... So, as I said about 60 seconds on Twitter @JRsBBQ after Brock made his decision on ESPN that 'Business Has Picked Up' and Sunday's WrestleMania took on a entirely new feel...as it almost became a new entity."
