Bah gawd! WWE legend Jim Ross has just suffered a nasty injury!
On Saturday, the 66-year-olf Hall of Fame commentator posted a gruesome photo of him after getting a horrible blow on his right eye. Jim captioned the tweet: “Took a bad bump last night. The concrete went over.”
His damaged eye looked very sore and has dried blood stains all over it. Despite the horrific mishap, WWE’s most famous announcer is putting on a brave face, saying he’s still attending Oklahoma’s American football match vs Kansas Jayhawks that day.
He continued: “Still going to @OU_Football tonight. #BoomerSooner”

The veteran wrestling commentator didn’t reveal how he sustained the graphic injury but his caption apparently points to a nasty fall onto the pavement. Nevertheless, he stood up and made sure not to decline any of his commitments.
On another tweet, Jim confirmed attendance to a combat sports event at Winston Salem on Saturday. Posting a video, the Californian native wrote:
“Hey Winston Salem…I’ll see you Saturday 10am-3pm at @WrestleCade.”
“Don’t worry about the mules just load the wagon. Bringing SlobberKnocker books & JR’s sauces, too.”

Most people know Jim as one of WWE’s most prominent voices during huge wrestling events. He returned to the pro-wrestling institute at last year’s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.
Jim was released from the WWE in 2013. Before his phenomenal comeback, the father of two worked at independent wrestling events for four years.
Since returning to the world’s most prestigious wrestling company, Jim worked on a part-time basis and last appeared on the Greatest Royal Rumble kick-off show.
Despite looking all strong and enthusiastic, it has not been the smoothest of years for JR. The legendary announcer is still grieving his wife’s death in a car accident last year.
OHHHH MAH GAWWWWD!!! SOMEBODY STOP THE DAMN MATCH!!!!!!!
