More Backstage News on Jim Ross Retiring from WWE

PWInsider has confirmed earlier reports that Jim Ross retiring from WWE was mostly a Vince McMahon decision and at least partially had to do with his behavior during SummerSlam weekend at the 2K14 panel. Ross retiring is actually WWE’s way of announcing that he had been let go without causing any major uproar among fans since Ross is so beloved. This way, Ross could leave the company as a hero who left on his own.

As noted, the decision was made by Vince and Ross was informed in the past two days or so. Ross has already received one major offer to sit down and record a shoot interview about his career.

Ross did reveal on Twitter that WWE will still carry his JR’s BBQ products. He tweeted:

“JR’s products still available online at & at . Nothing’s changed & I still appreciate support.”

    • Abudadein

      I’m dying to hear JR call a Madman Pondo vs. Wifebeater match at CZW’s Tournament of Death. Keeping my fingers crossed he’ll head to Philly (or Smyrna, Delaware)!

        jr would probably faint watching a czw match those guys are crazy lmao

    • Damian Starr

      Please… gosh he would be way better than Taz… I appreciate his heel role but it shouldn’t mean he’s performing any lesser in commentary!

      • godngreatnwoo

        yea true or maybe jr and taz on commentary or another 3 man booth with mike tenay either way I just wanna see him mainly call an aj styles match lol

        • Damian Starr

          yeah that would be awesome

  • james clinton

    Wow, I mean I knew vince was petty but really? Ross is there for 20 years and you let him go for something the nature boy did?
    I mean how did you not expect flair to melt down in the first place? Of course he was going to act out of control, its what he does.
    IMO bad move by vince & in poor taste.
    They better get JR back for WM30 though is what I gotta say.
