Jim Ross wrote the following on his Twitter account last night regarding his WWE status: “Let’s get something straight. I hired Laurinaitis in WWE when he had NO job. I helped him prep 4 his job & I remained an EVP in another dept. I’m not going to Smackdown or PPVs. I’m done as best that I know. Might do some Roundtable type stuff. My services aren’t required weekly. 1 more time..I’m fired from wk’ly tv. Our products are still being sold at WWEshop.com because it’s good business. Thx 4 support.”
After last night’s SmackDown! tapings in Dallas, John Cena defeated Alberto Del Rio via disqualification when Ricardo Rodriguez interefered in the match-up.
