Jim Ross and his wife were sitting ringside at the NXT live event yesterday at San Jose State University and when Triple H pointed him out during intermission fans chanted “JR” and even got a couple of “Holy shit” chants from the NXT faithful.
This was the first time that JR attended a live WWE event since he was fired right after SummerSlam 2013 following a train wreck WWE 2K panel which Ric Flair basically took over and the script went out of the window.
Ross saw last year’s WrestleMania from his hotel room and has said that this year he will be watching the show from his home as he’s flying back home to Oklahoma after his one man show today.
“Helluva time at @WWENXT show. Over 5000 fans w/ amazing atmosphere,” Ross wrote on his Twitter after the show was over.
Triple H also acknowledged the chants from the show when JR was introduced, writing, “I hear you. I hear you LOUD and CLEAR. @WWENXT #NXTSanJose”
