Jim Ross doesn’t think he’ll be calling XFL games in 2020

Vince McMahon’s XFL is set to relaunch in 2020. The league initially launched back in 2001 but failed to continue after just one season. McMahon has been very passionate about the project over the years, and has finally executed his plan to bring the league back. This time, however, it will be fronted by a former NFL quarterback in Oliver Luck, who will serve as the XFL’s commissioner.

The XFL has been in headlines a ton in recent weeks, especially after the first eight cities (Houston, Dallas, Seattle, Washington D.C., New York, Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, and St. Louis) to receive teams for the inaugural season were announced. Now the next step will be to reveal team logos, names, and for the XFL to nail down a broadcast deal to distribute their product. With that being said, the XFL will need to scout talent to serve as play-by-play broadcasters for their games.

Vince McMahon noted early on in the relaunch process that he has no intentions of doing any sort of WWE and XFL crossover the way the first season did in 2001. However, it would be a shame if that included leaving out Jim Ross, who is one of the best broadcasters in all of sports. Recently, a fan asked Ross on Twitter if he thinks he’ll call any XFL games in 2020 the way he did in 2001. Ross responded by saying “Highly Unlikely.”
