WWE: Jim Ross says he is open to return on 2-3 shows per year basis

Published 6 Comments

WWE legend Jim Ross has revealed he is open to a return the company where he made his name on a part-time basis, should the offer come his way.

Answering a question during an appearance on The Glass Half Empty podcast, the legendary commentator seemed intrigued about the possibility of working "2-3 times per year" on WWE events - even revealing how such a move would play out.

Ross hasn't been seen, or heard, in the WWE since his contract expired in July of 2014 and there has previously been some speculation that his exit was down to a fallout with the WWE hierarchy.

"I would entertain that thought," explained Ross. "I'm not against it, It isn't something I'm lobbying for I'm not sitting by the phone waiting on that call."

"(But) If WWE said, 'Hey, we'd like for you to come down and call a match at WrestleMania in Arlington, Tx. because we know it's an easy drive for you, I'd certainly entertain that thought."

During his time in the WWE Jim Ross helped create some of the company's most historic moments with his distinctive commentary and an occasional special guest appearance would surely go down well with the WWE Universe who have been critical of the men who have replaced him at the commentator's table.

Dream comeback

The 63-year-old isn't exactly desperate to come back though, with everything from BBQ sauce to his own blog keeping him busy at present.

"I'm as bust as I want to be, but I would entertain the idea, depending on how it was structured and how often I was on the road," continued Ross before revealing there is one event that would be ideal.

"One would think that 2-3 times per year would probably be nice. In a perfect world, if I was going to do something like that, it probably would be only at WrestleMania."

At this stage, as Ross repeatedly made clear in the full interview which can be found here, any talk of a part-time return is purely speculation.

Although, with WWE promising to pull out all the stops at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas next year, you wouldn't bet against hearing Ross' iconic voice keeping you informed at AT&T Stadium in April 2016.
