In a recent interview with The Gazette, Jim Ross spoke openly about his role in WWE. Below is an excerpt:
“I’m a senior advisor, like a consultant. I still play the “J.R.” character on television. It’s a recurring role on TV, just that. I’m a senior advisor in talent relations and talent-development. I’m actively engaged in recruiting, training and observing rookies in the system, the next generation of sports-entertainment performers that are trained in the WWE’s facility in Tampa. I’ll spend more time in that area than I did when I was executive vice president and the primary play-by-play voice of the brand.”
JR spoke primarily about Oklahoma Sooners football in the piece and mentioned he has six season tickets.
