It was noted on Sunday that Jim Ross tweeted he would be calling WWE SummerSlam alongside Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. Ross obviously didn't call the pay-per-view but was backstage at the event. Ross tweeted the following regarding the SummerSlam snub:
"I'm at Summer Slam on Twitter duty & not broadcasting. Booker's working w/ Cole & king.
"I am at SUMMER SLAM but backstage and not at ringside. Booker adds Smackdown representation not that Cole wouldn't have. I'm twitter man.
"I'm tweeting tonite..not broadcasting. Just happy to be here. :)
"Game time decision to use Booker to rep Smackdown on tonite's Summer Slam & to work with King & Cole. I'm happy for Booker."
Ross had earlier tweeted: "Excited to work w/ Cole & King. Expect some surprise bouts to be added to tonite's PPV."
JR is obviously taking the high road here as he was originally set to call the event.
