AEW announcer and Senior Advisor "Good Ole' J.R." Jim Ross recently took to his "Grilling Jr" podcast to talk about a variety of topics such as how the 2002 WWE SmackDown storyline between Dawn Marie and Torrie Wilson’s father, Al Wilson, which saw the couple get married on an episode of WWE SmackDown in their underwear after getting engaged weeks prior and which lead to Al Wilson "dying" as he could not keep up with Dawn Marie, was bound to fail.
Jim Ross said:
“It was the entertainment side of sports entertainment. Sometimes those are dreaded, it wasn’t a great idea. You know everybody in it were good people, they tried hard, they’re just doing their role, playing their role, know your role. If you smell what JR is cooking, somebody else did that already. So I don’t know, it didn’t have a great chance of succeeding. So did they get the most out of it? They could, I think they did. But it was just, it was bound to fail, it just was not going to happen.”
