As we noted on the site before, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has signed a brand new new deal with WWE and will be calling a match at WrestleMania tonight, and it will likely be the main event, which is currently scheduled to be Roman Reigns vs The Undertaker. JR discusses his WWE return with ESPN, and stated that his late wife Jan will be looking down at him and smiling as he walks down the ramp tonight.
“I want to believe and I have no reason not believe that it’s going to feel good,” JR said. “I have seen my friends here and they’re my extended family. I spent 21 years with that company. I’d like to think Jan and I played a small part in helping retool the publicly traded WWE after staving off bankruptcy and some bad financial problems that we all battled through. It would be very cathartic. She wanted to go shopping and wear her good threads on the [Hall of Fame] red carpet, and she wanted to hear the crowd reaction if I got to come down to call a match. We can’t do anything about the Hall of Fame and the red carpet, but maybe we can do something about the other.”
