Jim Ross says he has zero interest in returning to WWE TV full-time, comments on Mauro Ranallo’s departure from WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has posted a new blog entry over at his website where he gives his thoughts on various topics. During the blog, Ross commented on the Superstar Shakeup. He said that it’s a big week for the WWE talents and the healthy way of looking at this if you are a talent is that you’re getting the opportunity to hit the reset button and take what you’ve learned from their WWE experience and put that info and motivation to use. He loves fresh starts for talents if they seize the moment and refuse to settle. He said that competitive athletes generally embrace these fresh changes and new opportunities and those that don’t are often times prisoners of their own comfort zone.

Ross brought up Mauro Ranallo reportedly being done in WWE and the stories going around involving his departure from the company. He said that he doesn’t know what to add to the situation other than it’s regrettable. He noted that Ranallo is a friend and a talented broadcaster who continues to be an advocate for mental illness as he suffers from bipolar disorder. He added that he wishes him the best and know that he will stay busy as he wants to be broadcasting boxing for Showtime and likely get back into the MMA world.

Finally, Ross brought up the possibility of him returning to WWE TV full-time. “Many have asked, but I have zero interest in returning to the road full time for anyone on a weekly basis at this stage of my career.”

Ross also talked about NJPW and more. You can read the entire blog here. If you haven’t done so, you can listen to the latest episode of the Ross Report by clicking here.
