Jim Ross Talks WWE Deal, Roman Reigns, The Undertaker

Jim Ross recently spoke with Sports Illustrated where he discussed Roman Reigns, The Undertaker and his new WWE deal.

On his WWE deal:

“I only signed my agreement on Friday night. WWE and I have not talked about my next assignment. I’m also going to continue to do my work for AXS and New Japan because I have a contract, and WWE was willing to work with me on that. They have faith in me and they gave me back my old jersey.”

On Roman Reigns:

“Nobody gave me any announcer notes, so what you heard me say about Reigns was real. He’s a big, athletic, young guy with so much potential. I like him and I don’t particularly care if fans think he’s a villain or a fan favorite. I believe he’s a star – simple as that. I’m not caught up in his creative – I don’t care if he’s a babyface or a heel. I just like to see big athletic guys that are tough and demonstrate that in the wrestling ring, and I thought he did that well. He took a lot of punishment, he sold well, and he kept fighting.

He and I had a very good talk before the show tonight, and I was very impressed with his maturity. This kid could be the future of WWE and he certainly will be a locker room leader.”

On The Undertaker:

“The Undertaker has been a big part of my professional life since we got him from World Class Championship Wrestling to WCW in 1989. Then, of course, when I was here in WWE as head of the talent relations department, The Undertaker was the captain of the team. He was even bigger in the locker room than he was in the ring, which may be hard for some people to fathom. He was the conscience of the WWE, and Mark Calaway is everything a professional wrestler should aspire to be.

He took ownership of his TV persona, in-ring persona, and he knew he had to use his size and athleticism to make himself even more special. He’s left pieces of his body all over the world, and I have so much respect for him. I was feeling strong nerves and prominent apprehension because I knew the ramifications of what the match could develop into, and it was very emotional in that regard.”

          I have been on various systems but nothing at all worked for me in a proper manner. And finally in 2012 I came across a system that is crazy. It is extremely simple and easy to setup and I began advertising it within few mins.This system works and is ideal for almost everyone regardless of age,educational background or job-related skills.You can get immediate results even if you feel like you have sup-par computer skills.I have earned $1000 within my first 7-day period and after that I am making $10000 or more monthly.Thank you for creating this amazing system that is perfect for the average person >>>> http://mybm.com/35ETNA

    Boy I hope some of the whiners on this website surely disappear since they’ve said for the umpteenth time that they would stop watching Raw if Reigns does this or Reigns does that. For the love of humanity, have some self respect and keep your promises or learn not to make empty promises at all. Grow a pair and man up to your words.
