“It’s almost 99.9% certain that J.R. and I will be reunited for the 25th Anniversary Raw show on January 22 to do commentary. Probably the show will be broadcast from two different locations – the Barclays Center and the Manhattan Center. That would make sense to me.”

• Jim Ross Says He Would Advocate For Hulk Hogan’s WWE Return If He Still Worked There Full-Time, Believes Hogan Will Return To WWE In 2018
During a recent interview with Business Insider, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan’s status with WWE and if the Hulkster will ever return to WWE.
Below are the highlights:
On if Hulk Hogan will return to WWE in 2018:
“I don’t have any insider knowledge that Hulk will be back in WWE, but if he isn’t in 2018, I will be shocked. The world has an interesting way of forgiving others. The guy paid his price. He had a trial. He lost jobs. He had a court case. I don’t know what more he needs to do. And why are we his judge and jury? It seems right for, arguably the greatest alumnus of WWE ever with the most global name identity, will make his presence felt in WWE in some way.”
On what will Hogan’s role be if he returns:
“I don’t know what Terry – Hulk Hogan is able to do physically. I know he’s still training. He’s about my age — 64, but he’s in really good shape. He looks awesome. So, I would say that Hulk is – there’s a ticket for Hulk to punch somewhere to get back in WWE, at least on a reoccurring role-type basis, in my opinion.”
On if he would advocate for Hogan’s WWE return if he was still working full-time for the company:
“If I were there, I would encourage that development. If you don’t like him, don’t watch the damn thing, but I believe he belongs on that television show or WWE in general, and that somewhere in 2018 that will happen.”
