Jim Ross has a new blog entry up where he talks about Eric Bischoff starting a new wrestling promotion, The Brian Kendrick, Gail Kim leaving TNA, and more. Click here to read JR's latest blog in its entirety. Below are the highlights:
On rumors that Eric Bischoff is starting a new wrestling promotion on CMT: "Is Eric Bischoff going to start a new, wrestling promotion using CMT as his network? I don't know the answer but Bischoff is an aggressive, entrepreneur who understands the art of the deal. Being successful in this genre is all about talent and television and there, unfortunately, is no abundance of available talent out there that could headline a weekly TV show. Producing a slick looking show is less challenging than creating a viable talent roster in today's marketplace. However, I will add that if anyone could pull this off it would be Bischoff."

On The Brian Kendrick as a main eventer: "The Brian Kendrick has been really impressive as of late and I hope that his charisma and overall talent don't get checkmated by his lack of size. Some fans and others should not look at "The" and say he is too small for the big time or for main events. Experience tells me that simply isn't true."
On Gail Kim Leaving TNA: "Lots of talk on the Internet this week about Gail Kim leaving TNA and allegedly coming back to the WWE. I was never quite sure why Gail was released in the first place but if she is coming back to the WWE I think it will be a positive move. Gail has a ton of ability and has evolved nicely as not only an in ring performer but behind the mic as well since leaving the WWE. Some websites really made a huge deal out of this matter which confounds me somewhat."
