WWE Legend Jim Ross recently had an interview with ESPN where he revealed an interesting story about the Boss Vince McMahon sending him a handwritten letter.
Ross who was amidst his second bout with Bell’s palsy revealed that he received a handwritten letter from Vince containing a ‘Come To Jesus’ type pep talk:
“I was really in a fragile place, but Vince handwrote a letter to me, and had it delivered to my home in Norwalk, Connecticut. I used the letter in the book. It’s pretty amazing. It was a ‘Come to Jesus’-type pep talk. I was just so self-conscious with how I looked. I just thought how I looked, how I sounded with a little bit of a speech impediment because of the Bell’s palsy”
He also talked about the change in todays commentary compared to old days and said that people get angry at commentators but that’s how they’re produced:
“A lot of folks get angry at today’s commentators, but it’s how they’re produced. It’s their skill-set, a lot of them, and it’s what is asked of them to perform and to do … the demands on today’s wrestling broadcasters are extensive. The job description of that role has evolved and changed over the years. People can hear, and they can certainly tell that. It’s changed a lot.”
