This has been a very interesting week for pro wrestling commentary. Jim Cornette, Corey Graves, and Mauro Ranallo all made news for things they said either on or off the air. Now we can add Jim Ross to the list.

Jim Ross was announcing AEW Dynamite last night when Emi Sakura came out for a match. She was dressed like Freddy Mercury like always because that’s her gimmick. This time JR had a rather controversial thing to say.

“Freddy Mercury never looked so oriental… Asian… female.”

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
