JR's Return to Pro Wrestling?

Jim Ross was rumored to be joining Lucha Underground as an announcer, however, the speculation was he was too closely associated with WWE for their liking. That's not true. It came down to money and they weren't willing to spend big money on an announcer.

We're told much of the budget for Lucha Underground has been focused on production and they weren't going to spend big money on an announcer. As it is, most of the wrestlers were being lowballed money wise, which is why so money guys turned down doing the tapings.

Update on Ricochet

We recently updated on Ricochet working for Lucha Underground and we wanted to clear up some confusion. One of the stipulations of Dragon Gate USA/EVOLVE letting him out of his deal was that there would be a clause in his deal with Lucha Underground that he could still work for DGUSA/EVOLVE. So in other words, he can work for them when he wants.
