Jim Ross takes a shot at the WWE and RAW on Twitter

Published 8 Comments

The WWE have been struggling for ratings in the past few months, with fans switching off Monday Night RAW in droves. 

The weekly show is finally starting to perk up thanks to the return of Vince McMahon and his feud with the new Champion, Roman Reigns, but it is still a hard slog to make it through all three hours every week.

And, it seems like everyone knows it, even former WWE legend - with one in particular being unafraid to voice his opinion and take a dig at the company.

Raw = Painful Viewing

Former WWE announcer Jim Ross was watching his beloved Oklahoma Sooners lose to Clemson in the Semi-Finals of the college football playoff on New Year's Eve.

J.R was then tweeted at by a fan about the game, wondering about his feelings. Ross replied by insinuating that it was as painful watching RAW live. Ouch.

To be fair to J.R, he definitely has a point. But hot damn he didn't have to go straight for the jugular like that!

Controversial Firing/Release

It is highly possible that Ross still feels slighted by the WWE after being let go so acrimoniously a couple of years ago. It was suspected that the WWE great was fired due to his actions at the WWE 2K14 roster announcement event where he and Ric Flair were suspected of being intoxicated during a live panel.

Ross later suggested, however, that it was his insult of a sponsor that led to his release. Ross is still in the WWE Hall of Fame, but a return to the company seems off the cards - with his latest jab not helping his cause at all.
