Jim Ross Speaks On WWE Trying To Embarass Him, More
Following his ‘firing’ on Monday’s RAW, WWE.com posted a video of a camera man following Jim Ross around and asking him questions, like if fans think John Laurinaitis is better looking than him. You can watch it here.
Ross, who was celebrating his 18th anniversary with his wife yesterday, had this to say about the video:
“In case you haven’t seen it the WWE.com, ambush interview w/ me after embarrassingly getting relieved of my post is a bad joke. Actually sad”
Ross wrote the following on Twitter regarding the firing:
“Let’s get something straight. I hired Laurinaitis in WWE when he had NO job. I helped him prep 4 his job & I remained an EVP in another dept
I’m not going to Smackdown or PPVs. I’m done as best that I know. Might do some Roundtable type stuff. My services aren’t required weekly.
1 more time..I’m fired from wk’ly tv. Our products are still being sold at WWEshop.com because it’s good business. Thx 4 support.”
As we reported on the site earlier this week, Jim Ross did not know he was going to be fired prior to it happening on live television in front of his wife who was at ringside and his hometown crowd in Oklahoma. While Jim Ross is off television, he’ll still be working with the company. He is headed to WWE headquarters next week to tape the next edition of the Legends Roundtable show.
