Ross has been under contract with the company for the last couple of years but, aside from commentary on the Mae Young Classic a couple of years ago and a UK special, the company has not done much with him. If you’ve been listening to his podcast in recent weeks, his departure is not a surprise as he’s talked about having one foot out the door.
Ross said his contract ends on March 29th and he met with Vince McMahon and they came to a mutual agreement to part ways. Ross noted that he has a lot to offer but there are people around McMahon who think otherwise.
Ross also added that his podcast will be overhauled with a new format with Conrad Thompson. Unless something happens at the “eleventh hour,” the new podcast will move forward as planned.
Ross seems like someone who would be a great benefit to All Elite Wrestling, either as a play-by-play man and/or behind the scenes.
