Jim Ross to call UK title match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago


Jim Ross will be joining Nigel McGuinness to call the United Kingdom Championship match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago on Saturday.

Ross announced the news on Twitter today. The match will feature Tyler Bate defending his title against Pete Dunne, which was set up at WWE's tapings in Norwich, England earlier this month.

Those tapings will begin airing on Friday as WWE debuts its first United Kingdom special. Ross and McGuinness were previously announced as the commentary team for that show. In matches that will air on the special, Bate successfully defended his title against Mark Andrews and Dunne defeated Trent Seven in a number one contender's match heading into TakeOver.

Ross returned to the WWE broadcast booth to call the Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker main event at WrestleMania 33 in April. He then revealed that he had signed a two-year deal to return to the company with a specific number of dates that he's obligated to work.
