To this day, Jim Ross remains perhaps the single greatest wrestling commentator of all time.
That being said, his most iconic role has always remained that of the straight laced and technically oriented commentator, though there have been a few instances in his career in which he was tasked with playing a rowdy heel.
The video above serves as a prime example of his demeanor during one of said instances.
The problem with his heel performances however, at least for me anyway, is the fact that he’s just so goddamn awesome on the mic, that even when he’s screaming at the audience, he remains 100% likeable.
Seriously, the man could cuss me out, or condemn me and everyone in my family straight to hell, and I’d still find a way to like him.
That being said, I was never a fan of the heel version of Jim Ross, and I’m happy it’s appearances in wrestling were scarce.
