Rougned Odor punching José Bautista in the face gets the Jim Ross commentary it deserves

The feud between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays in Major League Baseball (MLB) is approaching, if not Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn levels, than at least AJ Styles vs. Roman Reigns.

Business picked up today, when a late slide into second by Toronto's All-Star third baseman right-fielder José Bautista (whose celebratory bat flip during the two teams' epic playoff-deciding game last October caused no small amount of controversy) started a benches clearing brawl - which included Rangers' second baseman Rougned Odor landing one of the cleanest right hooks in all of sports and entertainment.

It was a wild scene that added to the bad blood in a hot rivalry, will result in suspensions & possible rule changes and produce more "hot takes" than you can shake a stick at. One thing it lacked, however, was a soundtrack by WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross.

Don't worry - the internet has us covered:

In addition to good old JR, don't be shocked if this finds its way onto WWE's shows.

They did just dedicate the weekend to a social media push for their Dominican NXT star, No Way Jose, who uses a baseball pitching motion to set up his own punch move.

Unfortunately, the player from the DR in the Rangers/Blue Jays beef is the one getting cold-cocked. Oh well, JBL can still make unfunny references to it (or New Day can make funny ones) tomorrow on Raw.
