Jim Ross Officially Retires from WWE

WWE announced that Jim Ross notified the company that he will be retiring today to “focus on his personal business endeavors.”

Ross first joined WWE 20 years ago in 1993 and made his on-camera debut at WrestleMania IX. He worked on and off as an announcer on RAW until 2011, when he was fired in storyline by John Laurinaitis. He has appeared sporadically on WWE television ever since, and filled in for Jerry “The King” Lawler last year after Lawler suffered a heart attack.

Ross, who was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2007, has been working with the WWE development team in Florida for the past year.

    that sucks I was hoping he called all of undertakers last matches

    Wasn’t he pretty much retired anyway? Good Ole JR will still pop up on WWE TV here and their. I also would not be shocked to see him call a match or two every year at Wrestlemania, especially for guys like Taker and Punk who personally ask him to call they’re matches.

    Love Good Ol’ JR. A once a year cameo appearance around WM time would be cool. Wish you the best JR.
