Jim Ross Blogs On His Retirement From WWE

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com discussing his retirement thoughts. Here is an excerpt from the blog:

“It’s been quite a day. September 11, 2013 was my last day in WWE.

Its hard to believe that It was over 20 years ago when i debuted in WWE at WM9 & my first ever WWE assignment was doing play by play w/ the great, Bobby Heenan and the unpredictable Macho Man Randy Savage.

Time flies when one is enjoying one ‘s dream job. Heck, it only took me 19 years ti make it to the NFL of sports entertainment. Overnight sensation, right?

So, at the age if 61 it’s time to close this chapter of my life and begin exploring new, adventures while my health is great.

I wouldn’t have changed a thing in WWE except I wish that I’d been able to avoid some health issues along the way. That was the hand that I was dealt and I simply refused to fold it.

Other that health issues my ‘run’ in WWE has exceeded my wildest dreams.

I was fortunate enough to have a key role in arguably one of the most interesting and compelling eras in our business’s history.

Hmmmm….perhaps a book is in order some day. Time will tell. Now I actually have the time to write the autobiography many have asked about over the years.

For the record, I’m not purchasing a rocking chair so I’m not “going away.” I have many interests & I plan on exploring them all. ”
