At Saturday’s RINGSIDE with Jim Ross show, Ross confirmed that he has had talks with WWE about returning to the company. Ross said, “I began talks with WWE months ago and I am not going to deny we have talked about me returning.”
Regarding appearing at WrestleMania, he did not outright say that it would happen but did say that it “may happen.” As noted earlier, the word making the rounds is that he will call a match at WrestleMania.
Ross said that his late wife Jan’s goal was to walk on the red carpet with him at the WWE Hall Of Fame and hear his entrance at WrestleMania. If Ross calls The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns match then that will add more fuel to the speculation about Taker retiring. Taker, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H have tried to get JR back for previous WrestleMania’s.
