Jim Ross Signs 2 Year Deal With WWE

Jim Ross

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross made an emotional return home to the WWE announce desk on Sunday night at WrestleMania 33 to call the main event between Roman Reigns and The Undertaker. It would later transpire that this appears to be The Deadman’s last match in which he lost and put over Reigns.

Ross recently spoke with FOX Sports about the recent passing of his wife Jan, his return to WWE and his future:

“I signed a two-year contract (with WWE) that has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me.” He noted that he looks at this way, he has his jersey back on and he got brought back to his home team and that his opportunities back in WWE will be multi-fold. He said that he has a lot of things that he can contribute to and that he has been so blessed in the business that he has done so many different things. He brought up that he was an administrator, syndicator, marketing representative, VP of broadcasting, and head of talent relations. He said that the fun part is what he did at WrestleMania, which was being a broadcaster.

If you’re wondering will we see J.R. back behind the announcers desk, he said, “So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
