- Some people within WWE believe that Jim Ross will be back working for them in time for WrestleMania XXX. Some also think he will still be used for interviews on DVD’s and projects like that.

One source noted that JR’s situation with WWE hadn’t been good since WrestleMania and it was just a matter of time until something happened that would be the catalyst towards WWE pulling the trigger, and the WWE 2K14 panel was just that. Triple H, who was JR’s boss while working with developmental, had known JR’s days were numbered as far as Vince McMahon was concerned, so Triple H used to help JR out as much as possible before the call was made.

It was noted that there’s always been an issue with Ross and Vince because JR speaks his mind to Vince when he thinks a direction is wrong. JR has tried to be political about it and not confrontational but Vince is used to people not questioning him.

    I wonder what happens when triple h and Stephanie question him

  • raul cruz

    It’s no secret that Vince ad Jim Ross never liked each other. It’s amazing Ross lasted as long as he did.

    Y’all like to blame hhh for everything but he fought for jr

    • Ernie Marin

      one thing is blaming the character, however when making articles like this it would be a good idea to refer to Triple H as Paul Levesque so that everyone knows the real life person is nothing like what we see on TV, unlike pretty much every McMahon that seem to love to be jerks all around..

    • Louisa Baton

      No one is blaming HHH for everything but he has been more than a little green out there. I blame Vince for turning over the reigns so fast. I can’t blame him too much because Vince looks like he’s been ill. Vince should let JR do it and let HHH work with him to learn the ropes. Just my opinion

  • Ralph Ramos

    I knew it was all McMahon. It had nothing to with Stephanie or HHH or anyone else, for that matter. McMahon prefers corporate suck-up kiss asses over people that aren’t afraid of him and telling him when he’s wrong.

    Can you bring Jeff Hardy back he left Tna and it will be best for bussines thank you
