Jim Ross Gets Emotional at Double Or Nothing


On AEW’s most recent Pay-Per-View, Double or Nothing, the company honored Owen Hart, his legacy, and his family. AEW brought Martha Hart, widow of former WWE Superstar and two-time Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart, out to give a speech and award the Owen Hart Cup winners, Adam Cole for the men and Britt Baker for the women. AEW commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross explained on Grilling JR how his backstage interaction with Martha went


“I had a chance in the little green room environment in there, to sit and chat with Martha,” Ross stated. “I did exactly what I told myself I was not going to do and that was cry. I couldn’t help it and so it was very emotional. She was a gracious and glorious host, shall we say, of this event.”


Owen Hart passed away on May 23, 1999, after a tragic accident where he fell from many feet up as he was supposed to be lowered down into the ring as The Blue Blazer while wearing a harness. The tragedy and all of the events surrounding the terrible occurrence were covered in Owen’s episode of “Dark Side of the Ring.”
