WWE Hall of Famer, Jim Ross did a recent interview with the Toronto Sun and commented on many topics including his legacy, the state of the wrestling business today and if he’d ever want to come back in a full-time role with WWE.
“(WWE knows) that if they got into a bind somewhere down the road and they need my services for something that I’d be there in a heartbeat, and I would. But to go back and work full-time for anybody, at my stage of life, isn’t something I worked all of my life to do at this age. I always wanted to have some level of independence, from a financial standpoint and from a professional standpoint as far as my skills are concerned so that I could kind of pick and choose these projects so I wouldn’t have to be on the road every week and I could enjoy my life, I could enjoy my wife, I could enjoy my football, my sports passions, we could travel some, we could enjoy things that we’ve earned. They know that I’m always there if they needed and I know they’re always there if I need them, but we all had to grow and they’ve got to prepare for the future. Jim Ross is not the future. Jim Ross is a viable part of the past,” said Ross
