Add commentator Jim Ross to the list of individuals caught off guard by the Moxley intrusion.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Ross says he had no idea that Moxley was going to debut on the show, and apparently had no idea that the former WWE Champion was even in the building.
Said the legendary announcer, “I didn’t know it was going to happen. I knew we were negotiating with Moxley. I asked what was happening with him about 10 days ago, and I was told it was going well, but when it came time for the show, his name wasn’t anywhere on my format sheet. It left my mind because I had more I knew I had to prepare for.”
Ross also called the debut a "Stone Cold moment", putting over Moxley's, "...passion and raw, animal magnetism."
