WWE honors Jim Ross in his hometown

The Jim Ross Appreciation Night continued after RAW went off the air yesterday in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

“Jim Ross is an American icon and my friend,” said Vince McMahon as he stood in the middle of the ring praising the WWE Hall of Famer.

Triple H – rocking his new hair-do – led the celebrations, introducing a video from Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops and also another video from Lawler’s long-time broadcast partner Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Bill Watts and Danny Hodge also appeared live, congratulating Ross and then JR was presented with an award from the WWE.

“Felt as big as 2007 #WWE HOF. A moment I’ll never forget. So grateful 2 you all,” Ross tweeted after the show was over.

WWE.COM has exclusive videos of all these located here.
