In an interview with FOX Sports, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who returned at last night’s WrestleMania 33 pay-per-view to call what may have been the final match of the legendary career of The Undertaker, noted that his new deal with the company is for two years, which he signed on Friday.
Ross said that he had been in talks with the company for a few months and that his late wife Jan, who passed away on March 22nd, was very excited for him to return before her sudden passing.
When asked about returning to the commentary table at WrestleMania, Ross said, “I’m not going to tell you that I didn’t have those bald eagle-sized butterflies, but that’s to be expected. To be on the card at WrestleMania is not a right. It’s really, indeed, a privilege, and I was very happy that WWE reached out and wanted to, as they say, in their own words, bring me home.”
When asked about his assignments, Ross had the following to say, “It has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me. So look at it this way: I got my jersey back. I got brought back to my home team, and my opportunities back in WWE, I’m sure, will be multi-fold.”
