Jim Ross Is Officially Leaving WWE
Jim Ross will be walking out of the door when his current WWE contract expires later this month.
WWE’s long-time color commentator and proud Hall Of Famer, Good ‘Ol JR made the official announcement on the recent edition of The Ross Report.
“I’m 67, I still feel I can get the job done doing wrestling play-by-play and I want to explore that opportunity and possibility. I’ll be moving on in a positive way, nothing but good things to say about everyone involved. You know, I have my critics in WWE as we all do, as people do when you’re there for very long. It’s a very unique community and I have no regrets. The smartest thing I ever did was come to work for Vince McMahon in 1993.”
Ross noted that his podcast will be overhauled with a new format featuring Conrad Thompson.
Could JR be heading to All Elite Wrestling?
Fandango Teases New Character Upon Return
During a recent Performance Center interview, WWE Superstar Fandango teased a major character overhaul as he trains to get ready for his in-ring return.
“I was watching some of my old matches but I like doing comedy stuff in the ring but I think I’d like to have serious matches … I kind of checked the comedy box off on my body work.”
Fandango suffered a labrum tear several months ago and has been cleared for cardio training after undergoing physical therapy for 6 months.
Straight In The Balls!
Randy Orton made a cameo appearance during AJ Styles‘ backstage interview this week on SmackDown Live and verbally roasted The Phenomenal One with his savagery.
On Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray made a bold statement while highlighting his love for the segment.
“I see why it took you 15 years to get here — best line ever last night. Randy Orton verbally just kicked AJ Styles straight in the balls.
Loved it, loved it.”
