Backstage News On Jim Ross’ Firing On RAW

On Monday’s RAW, we saw new interim RAW General Manager fire Jim Ross. According to sources, Ross’ firing was not in the final script and most people backstage had no idea that it was going to happen.

It’s also believed Ross didn’t know about the angle either.

Jim Ross’ wife could be seen at ringside, looking excited as he entered the ring for the segment.

Ross told a fan on Twitter today that it was embarrassing for his wife and that they both were “blindsided.”

Regarding last night’s show, it’s said that what ended up airing was almost nowhere near what was originally wrote. Everything on last night’s show was re-written – something that’s been happening a lot lately behind the scenes in WWE.
