Although he has downplayed the rumors going around, Jim Ross is backstage right now at Citrus Bowl Stadium and he will be involved on the show tonight, likely calling one match.
As noted before, Ross has been in talks with the company about returning. It’s not clear yet if he will be back full-time or if he will be under a Legends deal. The talks began before his wife Jan passed away.
It will be great to hear JR back on commentary again.
