Jim Ross is one of the biggest figures in the Wrestling business. His name still carries a lot of weightage and he has been in the industry for decades. A close colleague of his is none other than Paul Heyman.
Heyman and JR were two prolific men back in the Attitude Era. Back When The Rock and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin tore the ring apart, Heyman and JR worked behind the commentary table.
In a rare combination, pitting the two together, WWE got some of the best commentaries. In a recent post on Twitter, Paul Heyman acknowledged this fact by calling Jim Ross the greatest.
The Heyman-JR commentary work was very underrated. Of course, it didn’t reach the tenure of Gorilla Monsoon or the iconic pair of Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler, but it certainly was fun.
Jim Ross has been an outstanding mind in the business. He worked with WWE and Vince McMahon for years, helping young stars come up and calling the shots on storylines.
However, he had many disagreements with McMahon, and finally, a major rift in their relationship led to JR leaving the company. Fans were mortified at this news and losing him was a big blow.
The BBQ Hot sauce specialist was known for his legendary catchphrases and reactions in WWE. Whenever something unbelievable happened, you would always hear JR shout “Good God Almighty!”
Sometimes, this would happen even repeatedly. More than the ecstatic fans in the stadium, Jim Ross would add to the thrill with his commentary yells that made a WWE match great.
JR always has something to say behind the desk. His mix of humor in his commentary style makes him a true commentator in every sense of the word.
He is doing the same remarkable job now with AEW and makes the matches a lot more interesting if they aren’t already. WWE lost a good man in JR, but anywhere he goes, it’s “Good God Almighty” all over again.
