Source: F4WOnlineThe firing of Jim Ross by John Laurinaitis on Monday night's RAW Supershow was not in the final script and most people backstage had no idea that it was going to happen.
It's also believed Ross didn't know about the angle either. It was noted that JR's wife could be seen at ringside, looking excited as he entered the ring for the segment.
Ross told a fan on Twitter today that it was embarrassing for his wife and that they both were "blindsided."
Regarding last night's show, it's said that what ended up airing was almost nowhere near what was originally wrote. Everything on last night's show was re-written more than once.
