WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has updated his JRsBarBQ.com blog with an update on his health, his WWE status and what the future holds for him. Ross sounds like he's getting fed up with fans asking when he'll return to WWE and says he has other options to pursue if he and WWE cannot come to terms on new contract when his short-term deal expires soon. Here's what JR said about
His WWE Return: "If I get asked one more time when I'm going back to work at WWE, I think my head will explode. My career will take whatever direction it's meant to take when contract negotiations commence. One never knows how that process will go until it begins. I do expect it to go well. But, no, I am NOT retiring full time and "going fishing." I have many, varied interests that I am investigating becoming involved with but I'm not doing anything that I don't think that I would really enjoy at this stage of my life. I truly love the wrestling business but I also take pride that I'm not and never have been one dimensional so that allows one to approach many endeavors positively and with an open mind. I truly love the wrestling business but I also take pride that I'm not and never have been one dimensional so that allows one to approach many endeavors positively and with an open mind. Without question, pro wrestling has been such a vital part of my life for over 35 years and no matter what else I may or may not do for a living going forward I will always be a huge fan of the genre. Being in the wrestling biz and functioning at such a high level not only as an on air talent but in corporate administration, as well, has helped prepare me for many possible endeavors. "
Working From Home: "We have several, viable opportunities that will allow me to do some fun things and rarely leave Oklahoma which is a somewhat popular option with some members of my household. ... I would be less than honest if I did not say that being at home, working on projects from Norman and from this region of the country isn't an intriguing option for me to explore."
Life After WWE: "I do know that my feelings toward broadcasting, my love of sports and entertainment, and emotionally engaging in whatever I do is alive and well. I'm certainly not burned out or even charred around the edges and sincerely feel that my best days lie ahead."
