Jim Ross Reflects On Vince McMahon’s Promo On SmackDown After 9/11 Tragedy

What is the most significant promo Vince McMahon has ever delivered?

If you ask WWE Hall of Fame legend and AEW commentator Jim Ross, it is the one that the longtime WWE Chairman delivered on the first episode of WWE SmackDown following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Featured below is an excerpt from “Grilling JR” where he touches on this topic.

“That was the most significant promo that I think that Vince ever delivered, before or since. He did a hell of a job there. It came from the heart, and the more he talked about this matter, the more motivated, invested he became. He was talking from his heart, and that’s how you do a great promo. I don’t want to compare what Vince said to a wrestling promo, but he was in the ring, on a wrestling show, and he was cutting a promo, so there’s some commonalities there. It was natural. It was organic. It was real.”
