Jim Ross signs new two-year deal with WWE


WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealed to FOX Sports that he has signed a new two-year deal with WWE, a deal that was signed on Friday.

Ross said that discussions began months ago and his deal includes a specific number of dates that he has to work. “I got my jersey back. I got brought back to my home team, and my opportunities back in WWE, I’m sure, will be multi-fold,” Ross continued. He explained that they have a lot of things that he can contribute to considering he pretty much did everything in the business, but what he did on Sunday night at WrestleMania was the fun part.

“I hope to have more ‘fun part’ assignments in the future, but I’ve got my jersey back,” he reiterated. “So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in,” Ross said.

Meanwhile, JR also discussed how his late wife was so excited about coming to WrestleMania, dress up and walk the red carpet for the Hall of Fame, and see him get introduced at WrestleMania. “That was her dream, and I shared that dream, which is one of the reasons I was so willing to come here,” the Hall of Famer said.

“I’m not going to tell you that I didn’t have those bald eagle-sized butterflies, but that’s to be expected. To be on the card at WrestleMania is not a right. It’s really, indeed, a privilege, and I was very happy that WWE reached out and wanted to, as they say, in their own words, bring me home.”
