• Jim Ross Reveals The Main Reason He’s Leaving WWE, Says WWE Wants To Get “Younger”

As we noted last month, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross is set to leave WWE later this month when his contract expires and that he’s in talks with All Elite Wrestling.

During a recent appearance on ESPN’s Outside The Lines, JR revealed the main reason why he’s leaving WWE. Below is what he said:

“I miss being around people. The main reason I’m leaving WWE is because they weren’t using me very much, and I feel like I’ve got some great years left. I needed to get out of the house, and I need to be involved. I need to be on the road, and I need to be around people.

Two years ago this month I lost my wife in a car accident, about 30 seconds from our garage in Norman…there’s no grieving manual that I’ve ever read, or been recommended to, that tells you how to get through this stuff. All I know is you’ve gotta keep getting up, and you’ve gotta keep taking steps forward.

I had no issues, I wasn’t mad at anybody – there’s no major controversy here. I believe WWE in general, as most television producers do, want to get younger. I’ve been around since the mid-70s doing this job that I truly love doing. When I was unable to get booked, to be utilized, I had to look for Plan B, and Plan B was, ‘let’s step away gracefully.’ Vince McMahon and his family have been amazing to my family.”

Also during this appearance, JR confirmed that he’s negotiating with All Elite Wrestling:

“We’re talking. I just haven’t signed anything yet. My people and their people are doing their thing. The only agent I grew up knowing was the State Farm agent in Oklahoma. So I got a real agent now, man! So they’re working on that, they’re working on it. I’m about to get into some voice-over work – I wouldn’t mind having a radio gig doing College Football.”

With that being said, Rajah reported earlier this month that JR is expected to sign a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling, where he would be making close to $1 million per year.
