Jim Ross recently relocated full-time to Oklahoma this summer. Ross’ duties in WWE have been scaled back quite a bit since he left his position as Vice President of Talent Relations in early 2004. He still continues to consult with Vince McMahon and is one of the only people who openly disagrees with McMahon without fear of it working against him.
Ross has done everything he can to help John Laurinaitis (aka Johnny Ace) when he took over Ross’ position as V.P. of Talent Relations. One WWE source did add that Ross has started to feel gratified almost that Laurinaitis is proving how difficult the job is and how taken for granted he was for a long time.
