Hall of Famer Jim Ross will be parting ways with WWE at the end of March, according to Ross himself on a recent edition of “The Jim Ross Report” podcast.
POST Wrestling provided a recap of Ross’ comments, revealing a recent conversation with Vince McMahon where they “mutually agreed” to part ways.
Ross had come to terms on a new two-year deal with WWE back in 2007, which was just weeks after the sudden passing of his wife Jan. He noted he wants to “stay busy” and on the road, adding he doesn’t think he will be out of work long.

“I’m 67, I still feel I can get the job done doing wrestling play-by-play and I want to explore that opportunity and possibility. I’ll be moving on in a positive way, nothing but good things to say about everyone involved. You know, I have my critics in WWE as we all do, as people do when you’re there for very long. It’s a very unique community and I have no regrets. The smartest thing I ever did was come to work for Vince McMahon in 1993.”
