WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross posted a WWE Universe blog clearing up any rumors as to why he was not at the Tuesday’s WWE Smackdown taping in Louisville, Ky.
“This has been a unique week for me…Most importantly, my Pittsburgh native, Italian wife, Jan and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on Monday.”
“Yes, indeed, I out punted my coverage when we married on October 12, 1993 in Las Vegas. Three months later on Super Bowl Sunday 1994 I suffered my first bout of Bells palsy and a couple weeks after that I was moving from Connecticut back to Atlanta. My bride never wavered and remained supportive of me and my passion for the biz that I’ve now been associated with for over 35 years.
Yes, indeed, I’m one lucky Okie.”
“So, this week I asked for my first day off a TV taping in 16 years with WWE to celebrate our anniversary. I enjoyed being at home and doing husband stuff and not having to board an airplane even though I would have loved to have visited Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky again.”
