Jim Ross has posted a really great new blog entry at his official website JrsBarBQ.com covering a litany of topics, including his assesment that Jackie Moore (Miss Jacqueline) was the most underrated Diva in WWE history (I cannot argue that, she was awesome), a Valentine's Day story on how he met his wife Jan and the following comment, obviously about the Tammy Sytch situation:

"WWE has literally spends thousands upon thousands of dollars on helping former talents deal with their personal issues. TONS of big, money for the record. WWE never has received the credit due them for their help especially when they are not contractually obligated to do so but they instead address these matters because it's the right thing to do. However, people have to want to truly help themselves in order for rehab to work and unfortunately many more don't and would rather catch their buzz and continue to live the same pre-rehab life that they lead before therapy. I've been knee deep in these issues throughout my career and can assure you that relapses by talents and former talents is heartbreaking. "

Ross is 100000% in the right here, folks.

DeadlineHollywood.com reported today that WWE Studios has come on board to develop and produce action-comedy "Cruisin' For A Bruisin' about "two rule-breaking ex-cops who get back together to take revenge on the crooks and corrupt senator who murdered their mentor." No WWE names have been attached to the project, yet.

The feature film adaptation of video game classic "Spy Hunter", which at one point was set to star Dwayne Johnson before the film stalled, is back on as Warner Bros. has commissioned a new script. No word if Johnson would still be involved.

Steve Austin's latest film "The Package" will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray this Tuesday.

WWE United States champion Antonio Cesaro was interviewed by Brian Sosia of Mix 106 FM in Philadelphia to promote the Elimination Chamber PPV and more at this link. It was a really fun interview.

WWE will be releasing "The Top 25 Rivalries" on DVD and Blu-Ray on 5/28.

WWE posted the following video featuring Booker T discussing Black History Month:

Michelle McCool posted a new audio update discussing a number of different women who worked as Divas, including Kharma and The Bellas:
