The Infamous (and hilarious) Jim Ross “My Ass” Rap Song….




  • Gilbert Velasquez

    one of the greatest commentators in the busines, eough said

  • Rene Ramirez

    Ross one of the best commentators ever next to Soley

  • allan

    Jr is the best because he was true passion and love for wrestling

    • Jay

      It’s neck in neck between him and Solie

      • John

        Solie by a voice

  • raul cruz

    One of the last true icons from the “territiory” days.

  • Ronald Ryan

    would of loved seeing him, gorilla, bobby heenan, lord Alfred hayes, jesse the body and mean gene do a commentary altogether
