More Backstage Details On Jim Ross Retiring From WWE

Posted by Matt Boone September 20, 2013 5 Comments

According to sources, there were actually rumors of Jim Ross being let go by WWE a few days before it actually took place. On September 10th, the day prior to JR’s release, someone in the WWE book department called an author to inform him that WWE had selected him to write JR’s autobiography.

One source claimed it was odd for WWE to even publicize JR’s retirement due to the fact that most casual viewers never see him on television anyways, and would already assume he had retired.

It was also noted by executives in the company that JR’s release would have never happened as recently as a few years ago, and it’s further proof that Vince McMahon is not worried in the slightest about TNA, in terms of competition.

Regarding JR’s role as the man who worked directly with talents in the WWE NXT developmental system, early speculation is that William Regal will likely take over those duties.

      she looks like a ridiculous freak with all of those tattoos far from attractive or sexy
      but I have respect she is Eddie and Vickie Guerrero’s Daughter
      its nice she wants to return to WWE and follow her dreams in the wrestling business have a lot of respect for that but the tattoos are ridiculous to fit the image of a WWE Diva it has to be with a little more class than that
      at least get the tattoos done the right way please respect my comments and anyone who responds to my comments don’t tell me to calm down again

        I couldn’t agree with you more. She was so beautiful and sexy naturally, and now all of these tattoos clouding her body just takes away from it all. When I first saw pictures of all of them months back I just thought it was gross. I have no problem with people with tattoos, but it just wasn’t attractive to me. But I still respect her.
