15 Greatest Jim Ross Dubs on YouTube
One of the most famous matches in WWE history is the Hell in a Cell match between Mick Foley and The Undertaker from July 1998. The intensity of the match is off the charts. The two stunts performed by Foley have gone on to live in the annals of history as being among the biggest spots ever in a match. In the opening minutes, The Undertaker throws Foley from the top of the 15-foot cell through an announcer's table. After deciding that he can continue the match, they climb back to the top and Foley is chokeslammed through the top of the cage and onto the mat.
Jim Ross is considered arguably the greatest announcer in the history of wrestling. He gets lost in the moment and allows his emotions to take over. He gives the action in the ring a sense of legitimacy; he cares and you should too. When Foley falls and hits the table, Jim Ross has stated in interviews about it that the next words out of his mouth were his legitimate feelings: "Good God Almighty! Good God Almighty! It killed him! As God as my witness, he is broken in half!"
