Jim Ross signs two-year contract with WWE

WrestleMania 33 won't be the last we've seen of Jim Ross on WWE television.

In an article that Fox Sports ran about his weekend in Orlando, it was noted that Ross has signed a two-year contract with WWE to return in a variety of roles.

"It has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me,” Ross said. “So look at it this way: I got my jersey back. I got brought back to my home team, and my opportunities back in WWE, I’m sure, will be multi-fold."

Ross returned to WWE for the first time since 2013 to call the Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker main event on Sunday night. Further occasional appearances on commentary seem likely, along with Ross contributing in some other areas.

“They’ve got a lot of things that I can contribute, and I’ve been so blessed in the business that I’ve done so many different things,” Ross said. “I’ve been an administrator and a syndicator, a marketing rep, a VP of broadcasting, a head of talent relations. But the fun part is what I did tonight."

Ross has a non-exclusive agreement with AXS TV to call New Japan Pro Wrestling's show on the channel, but it isn't clear what the new WWE deal will mean for that. Ross was also tapped to call ITV's World of Sport revival after participating in the show's pilot, but is no longer involved with the project.
