In a shoot interview with Title Match Wrestling, Buff Bagwell commented on how he believes a famous figure in the wrestling industry ruined his career.

For the longest time, Bagwell has claimed Ross has had something to do with him being fired from WWE years ago. In this interview, Bagwell went into depth on why.

Bagwell believes that the commentator spread rumors about Bagwell’s mother, Judy, who asked for her son to have the weekend off.

He believes this and a lackluster ‘Raw’ match against Booker T in the same week led to him being released from the company.

He had the following to say:

“Do you really believe that you’re gonna fire Buff Bagwell over one bad match? Come on, man. Do you really believe, out there in video world, that Buff Bagwell got fired because of his mother? Do people really believe that I had my mother call the WWF and say let him off Augusta in Birmingham? Well f**k no that’s not true! Why would I do that? But people believed it. And one person was responsible: Jim Ross. And only God, Jim Ross and me know the truth, and who’s gonna believe me. Nobody… The true, true story is Jim Ross created that monster, and people believed it.”

Ross was head of talent relations during that period of time and was the one to tell Bagwell he was to have his contract terminated. To this, Bagwell explains that he understands it may not have actually been the decision by Ross to let him go.

He said the following:

“It may not have been Jim. Jim made the call, and that’s the route he took. He said, ‘Hey, it’s a s****y job what I got here. It’s a job I gotta do, I gotta call people. It’s a bad job.'”

Despite Ross defending himself back in 2015 about this matter, Bagwell seems adamant Ross is to blame:

“To be honest with you, that could be true. But somebody, and I was told it was Jim, somebody started the ‘mother called in’ [rumor]. And what Jim’s leaving out right there, is on video they have a roundtable meeting, and Jim Ross rips my f***ing ass out.”

Bagwell says he never watched the tape as his father told him not to, then explaining again that Ross is lying and ruined his career. He says it is impossible for him to ever forgive Ross:

“Absolutely not, there’s no way… There’s no way to mend a fence, brother, of costing me my life. Jim Ross, I feel and I just proved on tape, Jim Ross ruined my career. He started this f***ing rumor about my mother and ruined my career. How do you mend that fence? How do you do that? Now, do I think he was the mastermind behind it all? Absolutely not… But I think Jim has all to do with what I’m talking about with my mother calling the office, and starting that rumor and everybody believed it. I think Jim was 1,000 percent behind that.”
