– Jim Ross wrote the following tweets on Twitter tonight about why he wasn’t calling the SummerSlam pay-per-view:

“I’m at Summer Slam on Twitter duty & not broadcasting. Booker’s working w/ Cole & King.

I am at SUMMER SLAM but backstage and not at ringside. Booker adds Smackdown representation not that Cole wouldn’t have. I’m twitter man.

I’m tweeting tonite..not broadcasting. Just happy to be here. 🙂

Game time decision to use Booker to rep Smackdown on tonite’s Summer Slam & to work with King & Cole. I’m happy for Booker.”

    Good ol’ bitter JR!

    Vince just likes screwing with JR. Why Vince? WHY?

    I literally had to mute the PPV after the third or fourth “oooooh myyyy goodness”. I don’t care if they put Ricardo Rodriguez in Booker T’s chair…just get him the hell of it. He is without a shadow of a doubt the worst commentator to ever put on a microphone.

    Mind boggling. You have maybe the greatest wrestling announcer in history, someone who all the wrestlers probably agree is the best person to call their matches, sitting a brisk walk away from the table and you don’t use him? Who keeps on deciding that Cole, King, and Booker T are better than JR?

    BS. Jim Ross should have been in Cole’s place.
