• Fan Makes Fun Of Jim Ross’ Bell’s Palsy, JR Responds
During a recent edition of Jim Ross Report podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross announced that he won’t be re-signing with WWE when his contract expires later this month.
JR also noted that he won’t be out of work for long.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:
“I’m 67, I still feel I can get the job done doing wrestling play-by-play and I want to explore that opportunity and possibility. I’ll be moving on in a positive way, nothing but good things to say about everyone involved. You know, I have my critics in WWE as we all do, as people do when you’re there for very long. It’s a very unique community and I have no regrets. The smartest thing I ever did was come to work for Vince McMahon in 1993.
I don’t think I’ll be out of work long.”
A fan made fun of JR’s Bell’s palsy by posting the following on Twitter:
“He could still have a career as a ventriloquist #mouthnevermoves”
This led to JR replying the following:
It’s called Bell’s palsy, wiseass.

The fan then went on to delete his tweet.
Speaking of JR, Rajah is reporting that JR is set to sign a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling, where he would be making close to $1 million per year.
