It was recently confirmed by WWE Hall Of Famer “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross that he would be parting ways with The WWE once his current contract expires.
On a recent edition of his The Ross Report Podcast, J.R. mentioned that he has a lot of great opportunities ahead of him even though his time with The WWE has reached it’s conclusion.
“There [are] a lot of big things on the horizon,” Ross said. “I’ll leave you with that. There [are] so many rumors out there, ‘this is going to happen,’ ‘that is going to happen.’ All I can tell you is this: I’m not keeping any secret. My contract with WWE is up at the end of March. What happens after that is not up to me entirely. It takes two to tango on any front you go to. So, all I know is I’m not worried about any of it. I’m not worried about how to get my groceries in 2019. All is good.”
J.R.’s last day in his WWE contract has finally come and he recently took to Twitter to comment on what it will lead to next. Jim Ross wrote, “Big day…it’s the final day of my contract with WWE after 26 years. A WWE camera crew arriving at my home today to record for an Undertaker documentary. I’m honored to be a part of it. Great way to exit.”
There is no word yet on what is next for J.R. but as previously reported he has been in talks with AEW.
“I don’t know, [AEW and I are] talking,” JR said. “I just haven’t signed anything yet. My people and their people are doing their thing. The only agent I grew up knowing was a State Farm agent in Oklahoma, I got a real agent now, man. So, they’re working on it. I’d like to get into some voice-over work, I’d like to do some… I wouldn’t mind having a radio gig doing college football.”
