• WWE Hall Of Famer Blames Vince McMahon For The 1996 Curtain Call Incident

On an episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked about the infamous Curtain Call incident that saw The Kliq break kayfabe in 1996 at Madison Square Garden, when Heels & Babyfaces celebrated Razor & Diesel’s last night in the World Wrestling Federation, before going to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling.

Here’s what the Old School WWF play-by-play commentator had to say:

“They are so indebted to each other and such great friends, I wonder how often they talk now? My point is, was it really that big of a deal? Or was it just for them to show their defiance and that they could do what they wanted when they wanted because of who they were. You have to blame Vince [McMahon] for a lot of it because he let a lot of that sh*t slip by.”
