WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently spoke with Jan Murphy for Toronto Sun to promote his upcoming one-man show in Toronto this weekend. During the interview, Ross was about possibly going back to WWE. “”(WWE knows) that if they got into a bind somewhere down the road and they need my services for something that I’d be there in a heartbeat, and I would,” Ross said. He added that he would not go back to the company on a full-time basis as that would not be interested in doing that at this stage in his life. He said that he always wanted to have some level of independence so he could pick and choose the projects that he wanted to do so he wouldn’t have to be on the road every week and so he could enjoy his life. Ross thinks that WWE always knows that if the need him then they know where to find him and he is always there for them. “Jim Ross is not the future. Jim Ross is a viable part of the past,” Ross said.
When asked about the current state of the wrestling business, Ross said that the good news is that the majority of the wrestlers who are wrestling full-time are making more money now than they have in the past. He thinks that is a good sign for the business. “WWE’s healthy financially, Ring of Honor is healthy financially, we know that TNA is having some issues, but hopefully they’ll get back on their feet and continue to attempt to be viable in the marketplace,” Ross said. Ross thinks that NJPW is healthy and thinks that most of the wrestling promotions in the world are healthy is a positive sign.
