At the SummerSlam event last weekend, Paul Heyman was a guest on Jim Ross’s spoken word show. On his appearance, he gave an emotional speech about the Hall of Famer’s late wife, Jan, which had the later in tears.
Earlier this year, Jan was the victim of a vehicle and suffered extremely serious injuries. Jim Ross’s wife, Jan, was hospitalized and put on life support, but she passed away two days later.
The Hall of Famer and the WWE legend Jim Ross returned to WWE on 2nd of April at WrestleMania 33 to commentate on the Undertaker and Roman Reigns match, which was the last match of Undertaker where he was defeated by Roman Reigns.
Paul Heyman closed the show with a beautiful soul stirring speech about the strength of Jim Ross and the latter appearing at WrestleMania to call the main event between The Undertaker and Roman Reigns.
Ross then said the following words which made the audience give him a standing ovation.
Because when I am up there with them I am home, and I am happy, and they make me feel good.
Heyman went on to talk about how he was almost kicked out of the wrestling business, and it was the support of Jim Ross that kept him going and helped him find the strength to found ECW.
The expression on Jim Ross’s face as he stood sobbing and trying to control himself after the speech gives us enough of an idea about the difficulties that he has gone through this year.
A Priest gave my wife Jan her last rites tonight. My little Angel is gone. 🙏🙏
