Today is the final day that WWE Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross is officially under contract with WWE. He tweeted late Tuesday night:
JR's active role with WWE ended last summer following his role as the host of the infamous WWE 2K14 panel at SummerSlam Axxess. Shortly after that event "going off the rails," Jim Ross and Vince McMahon mutually agreed to part ways.
Ross took a lot of the blame for the way Ric Flair handled himself at the event and says that one day, he plans to write about what went down and suspects that some people will be embarrassed about the details he reveals. He wrote at JRsBarBQ.com:
For all of his ups and downs with WWE management, Jim Ross is viewed by many as one of the greatest wrestling announcers of all time. it was one hell of a run.
