WWE SmackDown announcer Jim Ross addressed on his blog the rumors regarding his employment status with World Wrestling Entertainment.
The following below is from his www.jrsbarbq.com website
“I can tell you that any questions regarding my contract status have been body slammed meaning I am not and will not address them. There is so much BS floating around about my employment status it has become embarrassing. WWE is pleased with my work and perceives me as an asset that they want to retain. Once we officially begin our negotiations we will see where it takes us. In the meantime, I have no apprehensions as to those negotiations as I have another business to help build in JR’s Family BBQ and this website for that matter. I am stay extremely busy as many of you know and perhaps too busy as my smarter than me wife has reminded me several times in the past few weeks. She’s right, for the record. Plus, it’s football season which is my favorite time of the year and I refuse to get immersed in anything that takes my mind away from my work and the Sooners. End of story….for now.”
