Jim Ross Leaving WWE

On a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross revealed that he's done with WWE once his contract expires on March 29.

Ross noted those around Vince Mcmahon felt he doesn't have more to offer the company despite JR's disagreement. Apparently, his departure is a mutual agreement between himself and McMahon.

"My WWE contract after 26 years will expire on Friday, March 29," Ross said. 

"And, after talking a couple of weeks ago with Vince McMahon, we have mutually agreed I need to move on."

While noting the move is on good terms, Ross suggested powerful people in the organization clearly wanted him out. 

"I still think I can do play-by-play even though others that may surround Vince think I can't."

Ross says he's leaving the company "with great thoughts, very positive."

"I've made a lot of money, Vince is amazing to Jan and myself. He set us up for life financially, of which I can never repay him."

"I'm 67, I still feel I can get the job done doing wrestling play-by-play, and I want to explore that opportunity and possibility," Ross said.
