Ric Flair the Reason for WWE “Retiring” Jim Ross from the Company

As noted earlier, WWE reported that Jim Ross has announced his retirement from the company. According to F4WOnline,  Ross was in Connecticut last night and only a handful of people in Vince McMahon’s inner circle knew what was going on.

There was talk directly after Ric Flair’s behavior at the 2K Sports symposium last month of Ross being let go from the company. WWE felt that Ross should have controlled Flair once Flair started going off the handle. Reportedly there was  heat on Flair for talking about his late son, Reid.  WWE was also upset about Flair joking about John Cena not drinking before they met, and now Cena drinks a six pack of beer every night.

The retirement announcement was WWE’s  plan for the company to save face from a PR standpoint and to avoid an uproar. The plan for the announcement was made earlier this week.
