    Question jim ross coming back and more heat with vince so to speak

    credit wrestling obserever newsletter

    Some people within WWE believe that Jim Ross will be back working for them in time for WrestleMania XXX. Some also think he will still be used for interviews on DVD's and projects like that.
    One source noted that JR's situation with WWE hadn't been good since WrestleMania and it was just a matter of time until something happened that would be the catalyst towards WWE pulling the trigger, and the WWE 2K14 panel was just that. Triple H, who was JR's boss while working with developmental, had known JR's days were numbered as far as Vince McMahon was concerned, so Triple H used to help JR out as much as possible before the call was made.

    It was noted that there's always been an issue with Ross and Vince because JR speaks his mind to Vince when he thinks a direction is wrong. JR has tried to be political about it and not confrontational but Vince is used to people not questioning him.

    JR has a backbone and Vince doesn't like that.

    This is so fucking stupid and petty on Vince's part. Given how much dirt JR probably has on Vince and how he has been treated by WWE in the past, JR would be well within his rights to shoot on WWE and nobody, aside from company "marks", would hold it against him. Yet because the man has enough of a pair of stones to say what everybody else already knows, that creative leaves a lot to be desired, he deserves heat? I think a good company man, which JR has always proven himself to be (Nobody will deny he's always towed the company line, for the most part.) would honestly point out the aspects of the creative direction that need improvement, because he cares about the quality of the product being delivered, as well as the bottom-line.

    Also, while I don't think JR should return to commentary on a full-time basis, I do think he should be involved in DVDs, as he is very knowledgeable about many wrestlers backstage, having helped discover them, bring them up through developmental, etc, and so he would be an invaluable resource for insight. And of course, being the staple that he's been for such a long time at the event, JR should be involved in a big show like WM 30, just as other legends should be in some capacity.

    Please. We all know Triple H was behind it all. He went to Oklahoma, shit on JR's doorstep, and Pedigreed his wife before firing him.

    Would be nice for him to call WM but it wont happen imo.
    When Boss Lady talked about finding love then moved in close to my face, I thought that entry in my dream journal was about to come true.

    Triple H doesn't seem to be such a bad guy after all. I'm actually really starting to respect him lately. Even on screen. Guy is really turning into a legend. He's one in the making.

    As for JR, it sure will be great to have him back!

    How many times has the E fired J.R. now, only to rehire later? It's just a matter of time before they either rehire him or he just makes the decision to retire. I certainly do not want J.R. back on commentary but I could see him doing stuff for DVD's, interviews for the website and maybe even a show or two on the WWE network....... oh wait, scratch that last one!

    I think through all that hate, Vince knows how important Jim Ross is to the WWE. If he doesn't know, then someone else does and keeps talking Vince into hiring him back.

    Did anything get said to Ric Flair or was JR just attacked? I think that WWE2K14 think was great and that was thanks to The Nature Boy being drunk. Now I know why Ziggler and Bryan were a bit awkward when they wanted to laugh.

    At first yeah, but after the first dozen times you have to assume he gets off on it. Either that or...
