WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is always interesting to listen to or read, and his latest story published on Fox Sports is one of the most emotive wrestling stories you're likely to read in a while.

It's the story of former WWE superstar Darren Drozdov, with the ex-star speaking to Jim Ross about his career in WWE and the incident that changed his life forever.

Drozdov is now an essayist, but during a physically demanding career he was an NFL player for the Denver Broncos, before a stint in pro wrestling increased his popularity but ended up with him being paralyzed after a wrestling manoeuvre gone wrong.

Still not angry about incident

It was a power bomb by veteran wrestler D'Lo Brown back in 1999 that went horribly wrong and changed Droz's life forever. But despite sustaining a neck injury so bad that it has made him a quadriplegic, Drozdov does not feel any anger towards D'Lo Brown over the incident.

"I have no hard feelings toward D'Lo because sh-t happens and everyone who gets involved in athletics, including WWE, knows the risks that exist," Droz explained. "It was an accident."

WWE still supportive 

Droz has regained the use of the majority of his upper body since the incident, which happened because D'Lo Brown failed to grasp Droz properly as he performed the power bomb move 15 years ago, according to reports.

And the former superstar added that the WWE has remained supportive to this day.

"The McMahons came through for me and I remember my Dad saying after the surgeries that 'Thank God that you worked for WWE,' " Droz added. "The WWE is still supportive."
