This isn’t a good look on the legendary commentator. He has already been criticized enough for his body of work in the promotion compared to his stint with the WWE. There is also the case of him being extremely critical of the talent he works with.
To add to all of that, he now has this to his name. The fans are unlikely to let this die down anytime soon and JR will have to simply live with it for some time now.
