Jim Ross’ WWE contract is set to expire in March, according to a new report. The WON reports that Ross is still under contract, with the deal set to expire just before WrestleMania. Ross’ deal allowed him to continue working for AXS TV to call NJPW via his existing contract, though it is currently keeping him from re-signing with AXS.
Due to this, Ross will be off broadcasts starting at the beginning of the year through March. That means he’ll be unable to call Wrestle Kingdom 13.
