Jim Ross reacts to the rumor
The negative attention for Ross came to such a point that even AEW EVP Cody Rhodes was surprised at all the heat JR was getting for his mistakes on AEW commentary. While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross addressed a rumor that he drinks heavily during AEW tapings. Ross was furious at such a rumor and slammed it.
“I’ll say something I don’t do. Somebody wrote on Twitter the other day, as if they knew, that I drink a lot of Crown Royal during the broadcasts. That’s so f*cking ridiculous. You wanna say [that]? I feel so sorry for you that you would imagine that happening. If I could rebuke that stupid f*cking rumor. It’s ridiculous.”
It is also to be noted that Jim Ross was fired by WWE back in 2013 after he was caught being intoxicated during WWE SummerSlam weekend.
