Jim Ross made comments last week at a Q&A in Scotland that he had no plans to retire and wanted to continue his work in developmental. He said that he would “never” retire and would always be there when WWE needed him. He said the day he retired is the day they would bury him.
As we’ve been reporting, the “retirement” angle of Ross’ departure is WWE trying to spin the story to the media. He was flat out released and basically “forced out” of the company.
TNA President Dixie Carter posted the following in regards to Jim Ross’ WWE departure:
"What a class act! @JRsBBQ. Wrestling will miss you!"
