Ever since signing his new 2-year contract with the WWE following his wife's untimely passing, many fans have wondered how the company would use Jim Ross and in what capacity. Well, it seems like right now the next appearance for Ross will be during the UK Championship specials that were just recently taped overseas. He will join Nigel McGuinness on commentary and had the following to say about the new opportunity:
"I’m excited to announce that I will join the talented Nigel McGuinness to broadcast the recently taped, WWE matches from Norwich, England and these bouts will air on the WWE Network soon. Happy for this opportunity to call bouts involving new wrestlers, for me, and a new broadcast partner which freshens up all facets of the process. Stay tuned as to when these specials will be broadcast on the WWE Network which is still the best value in the land for only $9.99 per month. WWE has other bookings for me as well and we will announce them when they are completely finalized. So, 'Business is Picking Up!' I am happy to say."
