Welcome back to another edition of "Slapstick Saturday," Cagesiders, where your old pal Hulk Holland pokes fun at every botch, blooper and bomb the world of professional wrestling has ever given us.

Is Jim Ross the greatest WWE announcer of all time?

Maybe, maybe not. He's certainly of the most theatrical, getting in some memorable calls across his storied career, including his infamous play-by-play of the Mick Foley massacre at the hands of The Undertaker at Hell in the Cell back in 1998.

How memorable?

Even the mainstream press has taken notice, thanks to a recent string of viral videos that have him doing voiceovers for sports highlights, including LeBron James' slam dunk (watch it here) that has Jason Terry BROKEN IN HALF!

But this is not a new phenomenon.

Earlier this year, one astute fans took clips of J.R. and used them to do play-by-play for some of the biggest fights in the history of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) I know a lot of pro wrestling fans are also mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, so you'll probably enjoy this as much as I did.

Lolz at "Oh my God Shane, no, don't do it!"
