Jim Ross Says He Was Interviewed By Dark Side Of The Ring Regarding The Plane Ride From Hell

Dark Side of the Ring is seemingly set to cover one of WWE's more infamous stories.

Speaking to Sports Media with Richard Deitsc‪h‬, Jim Ross shared that he was recently interviewed by the team from Dark Side of the Ring covering the May 2002 “Plane Ride from Hell." He said the following:

WWE Removes Ric Flair From Signature Open, Pulls Merchandise And More

"Yesterday, I spent four hours with the Dark of the Ring guys here in my home in Florida and talked about the plane ride from hell. I told them in the beginning, I said, “I don’t like this topic, I don’t like remembering this bullshit”. It was a bad day at the office, it was one of the more darker days during my tenure as head of talent relations but it’s going to make a hell of a special for Dark Side of the Ring that was spawned by what they heard Conrad and I talking about on this podcast (Grilling JR)."

In an old Ross Report on WWE.com, the announcer wrote the following about the incident in his first column after the European tour:

"The flight was about seven hours in length and at times was low-lighted by a handful of people who consumed too much alcohol and consequently acted like children whose parents were away and left the liquor cabinet unlocked. The conduct of this inebriated minority was unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Procedures have been put in place to ensure such conduct does not occur in the future. The bottom line is this: yours truly is the person in charge of the talent roster and the buck stops with me. We will do all we humanly can to solve the problem."

Additional topics slated to be covered this season are the life of Dynamite Kid, Chris Kanyon, Bruiser Bedlam, the story of XPW, the story of WCW Collision in Korea, and the life of Brian Pillman Sr.
