Jim Ross/WWE Update: Problems With Vince McMahon, HHH Tried To Help & More

Posted by Matt Boone September 26, 2013 3 Comments

Several people within WWE believe Jim Ross will be back working for the company in time for next year’s WrestleMania XXX event. Additionally, many in the company feel JR will still be used for interviews on DVDs and other various projects.

One source noted that JR’s situation with WWE hadn’t been good since WrestleMania earlier this year, and that it was just a matter of time before something happened that would be the catalyst for WWE to officially pull the trigger on releasing him. Apparently the WWE 2K14 symposium was just that.

Triple H, who was JR’s boss while working with him in the developmental system, apparently knew that as far as Vince McMahon was concerned, it was only a matter of time before JR would receive his walking papers from the company. As a result, “The Game” tried to help JR as much as possible before the call was made.

Apparently there have always been issues between JR and Vince McMahon, as Ross has a history of speaking his mind to Vince when he feels a direction is wrong, while most people in WWE aren’t so quick to speak up when talking with McMahon.

      Well it was kinda fatal I mean he was dead for like 20 min. wasn’t he? But he’s alive and well now and that is great. Glad he can still get in the ring and wrestle and do what he loves as well as being apart of the RAW announce team.


      hmmm….UR talking about Jerry Lawler not JR….Lawler was the one to have the heart attack on RAW live alongside Michael Cole….
