While speaking on the Grilling JR show, Jim Ross talked about WWE snubbing him from The Undertaker’s Hall Of Fame video package. Ross made it clear he was upset over the exclusion as he was part of numerous iconic moments from The Undertaker’s career.
“What really matters is how many JR soundbites has been in any of these packages. Is the wrestling war that volatile that the guy that was the soundtrack of the biggest moments in Undertaker’s career is eliminated? Is that authentic or is it just being selfish or vindictive? It’s not like I walked out of [WWE]. It’s not like I left them high and dry somewhere or I didn’t do my job. It’s all optics and that’s not fair to the fans. Why wouldn’t the fans be interested or entertained by hearing a bite that I did live? Are they going to dub somebody else’s voice in when Taker tosses Mick [Foley] off the Hell in a Cell in June of 1998?”
It is understandable why Jim Ross is upset and it is not known why WWE decided to remove Jim Ross entirely. Regardless, fans will always remember how much Ross contributed to The Undertaker’s career and that’s what matters in the end.
