Jim Ross Discusses DUI and Matt Hardy Thanks Fans on Career


WWE Hall Of Famer recently discussed losing his drivers license for several months after a DUI. He told the story on his popular podcast, “The Jim Ross Report” and how such events lead to him traveling more with Paul Heyman.

“I’ve mentioned before that I’ve had a DUI. I’m not proud of it. I lost my drivers license for, I think, three months or six months. I’m not sure, but I know my driver was Paul Heyman, which let me get to know Paul and we started working together.”

“And you see how that has worked out over the years, very good. It’s funny how sometimes a calamity can bring people together. And the volatile ‘Happy’ Heyman and I became connected through my stupid DUI.”

WWE veteran Matt Hardy took to Twitter on Sunday night to thank the fans at the live event in Rochester, NY for the emotional sendoff he received.

For those that are unaware, Hardy has been dealing with a number of lingering issues with his lower back fusing into his pelvis and his in-ring career looks to be over or certainly limited to special appearances.

Hardy recently started as a backstage producer at SummerSlam and there are plans for this to become his full-time role with the company.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
