WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently was interviewed by the Baltimore Sun about his future in professional wrestling. He noted that he will likely not broadcast for WWE again and has a keen interest in working with Jeff Jarrett's Global Force Wrestling.
On Announcing For WWE Again:
“WWE, no. There may be down the road some WWE opportunities, but I don’t think it will be in the broadcasting side. Time will tell on that. If the Global Force thing is there, I enjoyed working with Jeff Jarrett for the New Japan thing in January. I hope that they do great. I think that they can do a real good TV show with the roster they’re putting together. He still has to find a network to air his shows on.”
On Working With Global Force Wrestling:
“I would be very interested in working with Global Force, it’s just a matter of time obligations and budgets and everything. Everything has to fit schedule-wise. Adding 13 weeks of TV tapings, then going to Nashville and doing voice-overs, all of a sudden it becomes a pretty big project. And I have so many projects already in the pipeline. I just don’t know if we’re going to be able to balance everything to make that happen. I’m not against it, Jeff and I have talked about it.”
He added: “I just don’t know that I can do it because of the time obligations. I’m a big fan of what they’re doing there. As I understand it, it’s going to be 12 one-hour shows, and then a 13th final episode. I’m a big fan of the one-hour shows. The finale will be a two-hour special. I think that’s a good concept. There’s some real good wrestlers coming in as well. They’d be fun to call.”
