Jim Ross


I'm watching the Bret vs Shawn collection and JR and Gorilla are announcing a match between the two for the Intercontinental title. I thought JR had to "wear a toga his first day" in the WWF? Was this a delayed Collesium Video release?

​Yes, JR recorded commentary for matches that were taped months before he got to the company, and then they used that version on Coliseum Video.  Normally those tapes didn't come out until months and months after the matches were taped anyway, so you'd end up with oddball stuff like that fairly regularly.​
