Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made a name for himself as a commentator in WWE. He has delivered some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling. It seems he also revealed why he had to get tetanus shots in WWE.
Ross worked in WWE for several years, which is why he knows the inner workings of the company. He has extensively worked with Vince McMahon and it has not always worked out in his favor as he has been the subject of ridicule numerous times.
Jim Ross and Michael Cole had been engaged in a feud on a few occasions, especially at Extreme Rules 2011. Ross and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawyer faced off against Michael Cole and Jack Swagger.
While speaking on Grilling JR, Jim Ross recalled one instance of his feud with Michael Cole. Ross revealed that he punched Cole in the mouth and had to get tetanus shots after his knuckles started bleeding.
“I remember I had to get tetanus shots when I hit Cole on one of those shows along that period where I hit him in the mouth, his tooth ran into my knuckles, and it bled like a hog. Little did I know that it was really dangerous as far as infections are concerned when other human beings bite. Then I had to take antibiotics. The doctors had to look at it every time you go out there and all this other s***.”
Jim Ross worked in WWE for 22 years and now Michael Cole has established himself as one of the pillars of WWE’s commentary team. Regardless, Ross will always have respect for Michael Cole.
