Jim Ross Comments On If He Was Pushed Out Of WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was asked by Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com if he was forced out of WWE.

“I think it was… after a good discussion and expressing myself and things that I’d like to do and just the timing of everything, I think it was… when you say mutual, it means partially to somebody that you’ve been forced out the door or treated poorly or what have you, which really wasn’t the case,” Ross said. “It was something that we had talked about kinda casually and it just seemed like, the way [with] the lay of the land, it was just good timing.

“So, you know, it’s just… I’m not really a negative guy, you and I have talked a few times, I’m always pretty upbeat. I kinda look at the glass half full as opposed to half empty. I had some health issues, thank God I’m over those. I’m feeling really, really good, I’m taking good care of myself. So, I just think it was the right time, with everything presented as it was, it was just the very best decision to make and now we’re gonna move on to the next thing.”

    Waiter: Would you like ranch dressing or honey vinegar?

    Jim Ross: There’s no doubt in my mind that ranch dressing is a solid, well-rounded condiment that could be the dressing on any salad in any era, and I’m sure that it will serve as the dressing of choice on a future salad of mine. Of course, if you read certain “websites,” online salad “experts” would have you believe that things are black and white, but it’s not that simple. In the back of my head though, I often wonder of the intangibles. Any number of things could happen. That being said, ranch dressing has all the tools, and that’s not to take anything away from honey vinegar. No matter what happens, I can guarantee that we’re in for quite an exciting appetizer.

    Waiter: Let me just call our boss Mr. Gus Fringe.

      When I started reading it, I read it as “Walter: Would you like ranch dressing or honey vinegar?” and immediately thought of Breaking Bad’s Walter White. Then I saw it said waiter. But got to the end and you had to mention Gus. It was Breaking Bad all along!

  • God’s Diamond

    I remember on a dvd jr talked about how a lot of wrestlers would either find religion or go on speaking tours talking about the perils of the industry. Since he has his bbq company hopefully he doesn’t end up being the latter, but u never know.
