As we saw last night at “The Ultimate Thrill Ride” WrestleMania 33, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross returned to WWE to call the main event of the evening – The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns.
During an interview with FOX Sports, JR revealed that he has signed a two year contract with WWE:
“I signed a two-year contract that has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me. 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.”
Below is what JR had to say when he was asked about how he felt returning to commentary at WrestleMania:
“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, is a privilege, and I was very happy that WWE reached out and wanted to, as they say, in their own words, bring me home. That conversation began months ago, and my wife was so excited about the prospects and about the potential of us coming to WrestleMania. She wanted to get dressed up and walk the red carpet at the Hall of Fame, and she wanted to hear me get introduced and to see my walk out and call a match. That was her dream, and I shared that dream, which is one of the reasons I was so willing to come here.”
