Owen Tries To Cheer Up Jim Ross
Legendary commentator Jim Ross told a great story about Owen Hart trying to cheer him up in an interview with The Providence.
JR was in charge of talent relations at the time and was having a rough day. JR was dealing with a wrestler that had some drug issues.
Owen played a little joke on JR to try and put him in a better mood:
“I was having a long day in my make-shift office at an arena when I was in charge of the talent roster at WWE. I had an extended conversation with someone who was having substance-abuse issues; that was our suspicion. Owen saw that my door had been closed for several hours. (As I headed to the arena to commentate for the TV broadcast), I catch him coming down the hall, stumbling, bouncing off the walls”
“I get up close to him, he’s got this white substance under his nose like he’s doing cocaine. Obviously, Owen was not a drug user at all. Long story short, he’d gone to the desert table at catering and got a powdered doughnut, trying to cheer me up and say, ‘You had a rough day. A lot of us are appreciative of what you’re trying to do to help guys”
