Legendary commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross made his return to WWE last night to call the WrestleMania main event between Roman Reigns and The Undertaker. If it was indeed Undertaker’s last match, which seems to be the case, having Jim Ross call the action certainly made it a fitting end for the Deadman.
Good ol’ JR will be sticking around in some capacity as he told FOX Sports that he has signed a two year deal with WWE that will see him work a certain number of dates.
“It has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me,” Ross said. “So look at it this way: 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.
“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 continued. “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,” he reiterated. “So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in.”
JR has a had a rough couple of weeks, and this deal could be good for him and I hope WWE uses him as much as he’s willing to do because there is still no one better. When the best is available and willing, you’re foolish to not use him. JR is an asset in any capacity, but he should be the anchor in whatever booth he wants to be.
