"It Was Fumbled And Not Handled Well" - Jim Ross On 2008 WWE Draft

"It Was Fumbled And Not Handled Well" - Jim Ross On 2008 WWE Draft

During a recent interview with Ad Free Shows, AEW commentator Jim Ross discussed the 2008 WWE Draft in he was told that the commentary team wouldn’t get split, but JR ended up getting drafted.

"It was fumbled and not handled well in my view. I was told the night before the draft, ‘You would think that CBS or FOX would get rid of Madden and Summerall and break them up? Are you crazy to suggest that?’ I said, ‘ok, I just want to make sure. I’m just curious, it’s just a career, that’s all.’

Then the next night, that discussion meant nothing. That pi$$ed me off. I thought that was disrespectful. As a mature adult and a professional, just tell me what you want. I knew I was getting drafted when the cameraman knelt down in front of our desk and put the camera right in my face. Here it comes and I didn’t like it. 

I felt like I was getting worked and I felt I didn’t deserve that in my view. Maybe I took myself too seriously, but I didn’t like it."
