Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com in which he clarifies recent comments he made on “The Ross Report” podcast that Vince McMahon was wary of signing Gail Kim due to her race.
“For the record, I am and have said on many occasions that Gail Kim is one of my ALL TIME favorite performers of any gender. She’s Canadian of Asian decent and a beautiful person inside and out. When pitching me hiring her, was I wrong to say that many men were attracted to Asian females? I obviously should have used a better illustration to explain that point than mentioning Asian adult websites being revenue generators but it was merely to illustrate my point as unfortunate as it was in hindsight. My problem is that I am honest and have no issues admitting when I make an error in judgment, if one was made, but the web site point wasn’t what got Gail hired in WWE. It was her ability in the ring and the fact that she did have a great look. She is a credit to any organization that she’s affiliated with and i’d hire her again tomorrow if given the opportunity.”
