Jim Ross Feels Tony Khan Saved His Life

During his recent Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross talked about how Tony Khan helped him get through a tough time in his life following the death of his wife Jan. Here is what JR said courtesy of WrestlingNews.co:

“I love to travel. Tony Khan saved my life, I believe that. Because I like getting up now and going somewhere. Every Tuesday morning I’m up at 4 or 5 o’clock at the latest to catch a plane, first flight out, boom I’m going to the city to have our production meeting on Tuesday night and then our show on Wednesday. So I got a direction now and a destination.”

JR said in an interview with TheWrap.com earlier this year that he needs to stay busy:

“At this stage in my life where you’re an empty nester, and you lost your best friend, she’s no longer there — I need to stay busy,” the 67-year-old said. “I need to get back on the road. I needed to get back out there and do what my passion leads me to. So that’s what I’m gonna be doing.”
