Jim Ross Negotiating for Full-Time WWE Return

As seen at Sunday’s WrestleMania 33 event, Jim Ross made his return to WWE and called the main event match between The Undertaker and Roman Reigns. It was previously reported that Ross originally signed on as a per special appearance basis, but that may change.

Dave Meltzer reported on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio that Ross is negotiating a deal to be back on a full-time basis. Very little is known regarding those negotiations, but we will keep you updated.

Speaking of Jim Ross, he posted the following remarks regarding his appearance Sunday night:

Update: Ross made the following remarks to Fox Sports about his current two-year WWE deal:

“It has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me,” Ross said. “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.

“They’ve got a lot of things that I can contribute (to), and I’ve been so blessed in the business that I’ve done so many different things,” Ross continued. “I’ve been an administrator and a syndicator, a marketing rep, a VP of broadcasting, a head of talent relations. But the fun part is what I did tonight.

“I hope to have more ‘fun part’ assignments in the future, but I’ve got my jersey back,” he reiterated. “So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in.”
