Backstage News on Jim Ross, More on Rey Mysterio’s Injury and Monday’s RAW

– It was pointed out after Monday’s RAW that Jim Ross seemed like a “third-wheel” on commentary during the show. Ross being kept off SummerSlam, not speaking much on RAW and having his hat stomped by Dolph Ziggler was noted by a few people backstage.

– During a commercial break during the Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio WWE Title match on Monday’s RAW, Rey was limping around the ring while Del Rio worked the crowd. Fans in attendance note that Rey’s knee was clearly hurting. Rey was trying to move his knee around and talked with a WWE crew member at ringside. To fans in attendance, it looked as if Rey was seeing if he could continue. They came back from commercial and WWE ended up doing the injury angle with Rey after Del Rio won the match.

After RAW, while John Cena and CM Punk were ending the show with Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez, Mysterio was getting looked at by WWE trainers at ringside. Trainers looked at Rey for over 5 minutes as Cena and Punk closed the show, according to a fan in attendance. Rey was finally helped to the back by a WWE trainer and a referee.

  • I watched RAW and never thought JR was not talking much. In fact, there were times I thought that about Cole – and I liked it. JR is perfect in that when others go off course, he brings them back to calling the match.

    I don’t see the disrespect, the hat stomp is just a work, and JR has said many times it is just a matter of getting used to three commentators.

  • CM Mark

    Anyone who does harm to JR has NO RESPECT for the business. I don’t mean the hat stomp because that was obviously a work, but I don’t see where this rumour garbage is coming from.

    dolph ziggler vs jerry lawler I can see it happening which will be stupid

  • D2K

    JR must either have a real inferiority complex, or he is completely brought and paid for by the McMahons. I can’t think of any other tangible reason why he would subject himself to this level of dishonor and disrespect.

  • venom

    JR must not mind this stuff because they always disrespect him on tv. looks like Rey is out with another injury. This Wrestlemania coming up should be his last.

  • Omar

    Why do they do this to JR?
