Jim Ross is Officially Back In The WWE on a 2-Year Contract
It has been a very eventful last couple of weeks for Jim Ross and his family.
Late last month, he took to Twitter and announced his wife had passed away due to a horrific car accident. Almost two weeks after that, Ross, who had retired from the WWE in 2013, was scheduled to call one match at Wrestlemania 33—the Undertaker’s final match.
Now, reports state he’ll be around much longer as he just signed a 2-year contract to stay with the company he loves.
“They’ve got a lot of things that I can contribute (to), and I’ve been so blessed in the business that I’ve done so many different things,” Ross told Sam Gardner of Fox Sports. “I’ve been an administrator and a syndicator, a marketing rep, a VP of broadcasting, a head of talent relations. But the fun part is what I did tonight.
“I hope to have more ‘fun part’ assignments in the future, but I’ve got my jersey back. So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in.”
