Jim Ross is back with another blog entry from his official website. You can read the entire blog here: Some highlights:

Howard Stern saying he would not vote for a President that watches wrestling: "Seems like a strange thing for Stern to say. Apparently, Stern has a very low opinion of the wrestling business. Now that’s irony coming from Stern, who is one of the last guys I thought would have an antiquated, wrestling bias."

William Regal as King of the Ring: "KOR winner William Regal is arguably one of the more underutilized talents in the biz and even though Regal can definitely talk, which all General Managers must obviously be able to do, he adds a valuable element of experience and expertise to any bout in which he is involved. In the immediate future one has to wonder if Regal is likely to continue to be the Raw G.M. or will Regal focus more on his wrestling career now that the U.K. native from Blackpool, England is the reigning King of the Ring?"

Joey Styles' move to WWE.com: "Joey Styles told me Monday in catering, no jokes please, that he was really enjoying his new gig at www.wwe.com. Joey seemed to be the most relaxed and comfortable that I have seen him since coming to work at the WWE. Joey has already instituted several changes to the WWE website with plenty more on their way. Joe said he was now a "retired announcer" and budding corporate executive."

Best Wrestler Alive: "Just for the record….Danny Hodge is the greatest, living wrestler in the world….especially on this website."

Obama vs. Clinton from RAW: "Some wrestling pundits really slammed the "match" between the impersonators posing as Hillary and Barack. I am not sure what folks expectations were for this "contest," but it was, plain and simple, nothing more than a publicity stunt that did garner a great deal of pub the week of a WWE pay per view. The WWE made air on media outlets that would never mention the WWE unless there was a tragedy or a scandal. While the "match" was not my personal cup of tea, it did not last long enough to offend me and I sort of got a kick out of the ovation Umaga received when he came to the ring to put an end to the frivolity."

Wow I wasnt expecting CM Punk to become world champion, anyway I dont think he will have a long title reign, its nice that somebody else is a champion ( who can actually wrestle ).

Yeah it suprised me, but I agree it won't last for long. I doubt he will hold the title past SummerSlam.

I expect him to lose it at the ppv before summerslan ( Great American Bash ) and I wouldnt be suprised if its Chris Jericho who defeats him.

WWE.com announced that they have released Trevor Murdoch today. Murdoch had held the WWE Tag Team Championship on three occasions.

Murdoch had just been drafted to Smackdown! last week as part of the WWE Draft. He had been wrestling as a member of the WWE roster since 2005.

According to The Wrestling Observer, it appears that Mr. Kennedy will not be getting any more of a push on Smackdown now that he has been drafted. He is expected to remain lingering in the same spot he was in on Raw. No reason has been given as to why WWE is making this decision, but if it has nothing to do with behavior than I can't understand why they would misuse such a talent.

It came to many as a surprise that Shelton Benjamin was drafted to Smackdown last week as head writer Michael Hayes has never been high on the "Gold Standard." Hayes has criticized Shelton as being lazy, having poor promo skills, and never being able to seize the moment when it's given to him. There is talk, however, about placing him in a program with Jeff Hardy.

In addition to amendments to its Substance Abuse and Drug Testing Policy, WWE has undertaken several enhancements to its overall Talent Wellness Program since its inception in February 2006. Updates include:

* Retaining ImPACT Inc. to manage operations and administration of the Talent Wellness Program. Through ImPact, WWE obtained the services of Dr. Joseph Maroon as the program’s Medical Director. He will coordinate a team of physicians and medical personnel for program implementation. Here's a link to the current WWE Talent Wellness Program Medical Team.

* Publicly announcing suspensions of performers. As of November 1, 2007, suspensions resulting from violations of the Talent Wellness Program have been announced publicly. More than 30 suspensions have been issued since the start of the Talent Wellness Program.

* Adding new drugs to the list of banned substances in the program. Anti-estrogens have been added to the list of banned substances due to their ability to be used to mask the effects of steroid use.

* Mandatory pre-contract cardiovascular, drug screening and physical exams for potential new performers.

* Mandatory cognitive tests for performers to monitor brain conditions. WWE is now using The ImPACT™ Concussion Management Program for all WWE performers. The ImPACT program is used by the National Football League, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, and the NCAA.

* Expanding drug treatment services to former performers. For the past 20 years, an important component of WWE’s efforts to deter its performers from abusing drugs has been its commitment to assist performers in receiving appropriate drug rehabilitation and treatment programs. WWE has expanded this offer to include any individuals who had ever performed under contract to WWE during their careers. More than 500 letters were sent out to former performers in September 2007. So far, more than a dozen former performers have sought assistance, and we continue to receive calls to our 24-hour hotline inquiring about the program.

Here is a list of superstars that have been suspended thus far for violating the Wellness Policy:

- Randy Orton
- Joey Mercury
- Rene Dupree (two-time offender)
- Kurt Angle
- Rob Van Dam (due to a drug possession arrest)
- Kid Kash
- Ryan Reeves
- Ryan O’Reilly
- Balls Mahoney
- Drew “Festus” Hankinson
- Andrew “Test” Martin
- referee Chris Kay (two-time offender, later fired)
- Jeff Hardy (two-time offender)
- Chavo Guerrero (two-time offender)
- Chris Masters (two-time offender, later fired)
- Edge
- Funaki
- Gregory Helms
- Booker T (two-time offender)
- Charlie Haas
- Mr. Kennedy
- Umaga
- William Regal (two-time offender)
- John Morrison
- Gene Snitsky
- Harry “DH” Smith
- Derrick Neikirk (later fired)
- Neil “Chet the Jet” Bzibziak (later fired)
- Afa, Jr. (for attempting to cheat a drug test back in February or March with a realistic prosthetic penis, which forced WWE to change the testing procedure by making the dropping of a performer’s trousers below the knees in front of a doctor mandatory in all future drug tests)
- Jimmy Wang Yang

Variety are reporting that WWE are moving to become more family friendly as they plan to produce their three weekly TV shows in a way that lands WWE a PG rating. Monday Night Raw on USA Network and ECW on Sci Fi are currently rated TV-14, while CW’s Friday Night SmackDown, who are preparing for the move to MyNetworkTV this fall is already a TV-PG.

Varierty reports, “WWE stressed that its shows wouldn't become tamer, as a result of the change. They'd just focus more on its over-the-top characters and storylines, rather than attention-grabbing stunts that may have been considered too outrageous in the past.”

A WWE representative said, "It's the continuing evolution of the company to create content for our growing audience of younger viewers." WWE recently released a kids magazine and website to help target the same demo with original content. Their film division WWE Studios will also help steer away from Rated R content.

WWE SmackDown Results: (Airing Friday)

* SmackDown starts with MVP's Lounge. His guest is Jeff Hardy who receives a huge pop. MVP runs down Jeff Hardy's troubles -- the suspension, losing the Intercontiental Championship, his house fire, losing his dog. They then call Dr. Phil... Dr. Phil comes on the line and blames Jeff for being reckless and not caring about his career.

Jeff finally has enough and pushes MVP through the ropes and out of the ring. MVP goes to the back. Jeff walks up the ramp, pauses at the top as the fans applaud. He raises his arms and salutes.

* A biggest part of the summer battle royal is announced for later tonight. It will determine the number one contender for Triple H's WWE Championship at SummerSlam.

The Battle Royal participants are: Ken Kennedy, Jeff Hardy, MVP, Big Show, Umaga, and The Great Khali.

* Shelton Benjamin b. Jimmy Wang Yang
Shelton draws a lot of heat from the fans. Benjamin dominates throughout and hits an "indescribable" finisher.

* Festus b. Curt Hawkins
Festus dominated throughout. After the match, Hawkins and Ryder attacked Festus.

* Vladimir Kozlov b. Stevie Richards
Kozlov takes out Richards with a shoulder block and then a heatbutt for the win. After the match Kozlov says something to Jim Ross and Mick Foley that the live audience cannot hear.

* The Great Khali b. Ken Kennedy, Jeff Hardy, MVP, Big Show, and Umaga to win the battle royal.
MVP is eliminated first. Big Show eliminates Umaga and then Kennedy. Khali vs. Big Show as Hardy slumps in the corner. Umaga comes back in and hits Big Show with the thumb. The ref orders him to the back. Kennedy is eliminated by the Big Show. Big Show is then eliminated by Jeff Hardy. The Great Khali gets the win by eliminating Jeff Hardy. Runjin Singh returns. Triple H comes out to confront Khali.

* A Ron Killings promo airs. He will be coming to SmackDown soon.

* Michelle McCool b. Maryse
McCool won by getting Maryse to tap in her leg submission.

* Maria will be debuting on SmackDown next week.

* Brian Kendrick b. Shannon Moore
Kendrick comes out with Ezekiel and cuts a promo. Moore is initially over matched by the hyper aggressive Kendrick. Moore is distracted by Ezekiel. Kendrick hits a reverse backwards bulldog-type move for the win.

* Up next is Edge's public apology to Vickie. He comes out to the ring and calls out Vickie. She is wheeled out by Chavo. Vickie hugs Edge and tells him she forgives him. She then says that hell hatch no fury like a woman scorn. She tells Edge she has reinstated the Undertaker and that he will face him at SummerSlam in a Hell in a Cell match. She then announces that Edge will face Triple H right now in a Philadelphia Street Fight. This will more-than-likely be a dark match.

* Edge gets on the mic and says that no matter what he gets thrown into, he still loves Vickie Guerrero.

* Triple H b. Edge in a Philadelphia Street Fight to retain the WWE Championship.
Triple H starts out fast by smashing Edge's head into the announcers table. Edge reverses and throws Triple H into the ring steps. Another reversal as Triple H smashes Edge into the announcers table. He whips Edge into Jim Ross. Back in the ring, Triple H brings in a sledgehammer. Edge blocks the sledgehammer and knocks Triple H to the mat. He gets two chairs and sets up the concerto. Triple H gets out of the way and hits Edge in the face with the sledgehammer and pins him for the win.

After Triple H leaves to the rousing applause, Edge scrambles unsteadily to his feet. He proclaims his love for his baby Vickie no matter what. He stumbles to the back with the referees help.

In Jim Ross' latest blog on his official website, he said he saw Jonathan Coachman backstage at The Great American Bash. Ross confirmed the rumors of Coachman leaving World Wrestling Entertainment once his contract is up. Ross said Coachman will be working for ESPN in the near future. Ross wrote: "It was great seeing Jonathan Coachman for a few minutes Sunday afternoon at the Nassau Coliseum and getting to meet his new, baby daughter who is beautiful for the record. Coach is leaving the WWE and will begin a new career with ESPN and will be moving to the Bristol area in the near future." Ross also talks about new talent coming in, Brooke Hogan possibly posing for Playboy, Jesse Ventura's latest exploits, MMA, the word "poop" being used in WWE, and more.
