JR Reveals Concern for Paul Bearer

In a new interview conducted for Digital Spy, Jim Ross had the following to say regarding the late Paul Bearer:

"We were always concerned about his health," Ross admitted. "I remember when I signed him to come back to WWE, part of that agreement was to help him get his surgery to address his weight issues. We were very concerned and wanted him to be healthy and wanted to help him be healthy. Having an eating disorder is nothing to joke about. It's not a fat joke. It's a serious issue that the company took very seriously."
