Breaking News: Jim Ross' Wife Passes Away After Tragic Accident

Jim Ross Wife Death

Sad news to report today as Jim Ross' wife Jan has passed away after a tragic auto accident on Monday. TMZ reported on the accident and gave the news that Jan was on life support after JR had posted online that a miracle was needed after she had suffered multiple skull fractures in the accident.

Jan Ross had been with JR since his days in WCW and throughout his legendary run in WWE. Ross has been posting updates on his website and thanking the wrestling community for the ongoing support.  JR referred to Jan in recent postings as "his angel," but anyone that has heard JR talk about his wife over the years knows that is the same term he has always used to describe her. Sadly, JR's latest update let everyone know that Jan had received last rites and his angel was gone.

Our thoughts are with Jim Ross during this unexpected tragedy.

Breaking News: Explicit Videos and Photos of Paige Leak Online

WWE Paige Leaked Content

It's been a crazy year for WWE Superstar Paige, and depending on whose opinion you listen to, that could be a good or a bad thing.  Paige came in to WWE and was an immediate star as she defeated Divas Champion AJ Lee for the title on her first night with the main roster.  Prior to that, she had a highly successful run in NXT and even before starting there she was already a veteran in the wrestling business being she started in her teenage years. 

Paige was really the first female that initiated the current "Divas Revolution" that has seen stars like Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and others rise to prominence, which make it a shame that she's been out of the picture in WWE for the past few months for various reasons.

WWE News: Swagger Released, Undertaker vs. Reigns Made Official

Swagger WWE Release

Today's news roundup features a couple of headlines that most of us knew were probably coming; Jack Swagger openly requested his release from WWE a few weeks ago so the writing was pretty much on the wall for him, and WWE made it official today as Swagger has officially been "future endeavored."

Swagger has been floundering badly in WWE for the past few years with no real direction after his "We The People" run with Zeb Colter. Even before that run, we included Swagger in our list of 5 wrestlers WWE should send to Japan since obviously he had talent, but just wasn't doing anything meaningful in WWE.  Swagger could still be a guy that could go other places (like Japan, Mexico etc.) and reinvent himself; the fact that Dutch Mantel (aka Zeb Colter) is now part of the Impact Wrestling creative team could also make it quite likely that we will see Swagger pop up on Impact in the next few months.

WWE News: Rick Rude Finally Being Inducted Into the Hall of Fame

Rick Rude WWE Hall of Fame

WWE is justifying another long overdue Hall of Fame induction this year as "Ravishing" Rick Rude is the latest inductee into the 2017 class.  When I say long overdue, one of the reasons is that Rude's name comes up almost any time a legendary figure is asked who should be in the WWE Hall of Fame but isn't yet; finally, this year the Hall becomes "Simply Ravishing."

Rick Rude (real name Richard Rood, always cool to know he used a variation of his real name) was regarded as one of the toughest men in wrestling behind the scenes, regardless of his cocky heel persona that he played to perfection.  I first saw Rude in the Von Erich's World Class Championship Wrestling where Rude was the promotion's first World Heavyweight Champion after they withdrew from the NWA in 1986.
