Jim Ross/WWE Update

Jim Ross Releases Statement About Rumors Regarding His WWE Departure

WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross took to social media on Thursday to address rumors of his departure from the company, which as he noted during a recent episode of his “Ross Report” podcast, will take place when his current contract expires at the end of this month.

“Good Ole’ J.R.” wrote the following on his Instagram page regarding the rumors:

“Sad to see how some are looking for “dirt” as to why I will no longer be with WWE. WWE and I are parting ways with no animosity.

As I said on my podcast on Westwood One, I can’t thank Vince McMahon enough for how he looked over Jan and me for the last 25+ years. I will be forever grateful.

I look forward to the next chapter of my life. Working on our next book with Paul O’Brien. (You can still order SLOBBERKNOCKER on Amazon now). And join me at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC April 6th. Can’t wait to see all of you great fans there. Visit www.GothamComedyClub.com for more info.”
