The Miami Herald recently spoke with WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross about the WWE Network and some of his projects. Here are a few highlights:

Origins of the Network:
“The network is something that many of us have spent ample time in WWE talking about. Talk of starting a network goes all the way back to when WWE started buying wrestling libraries. I was involved in the process as one of many people involved in the process.”

Will he be part of the Network?
“I’m sure I will be a part of it in one form or another as they have the Mid-South library, the Crockett portion of WCW, the Turner portion of WCW and the last 20 years of WWE. Whether I’m going to do anything else [new] for it obviously remains to be seen. That is WWE’s call. It’s a wonderful opportunity to continue to grow the brand. I think it’s ahead of the curve as far as distribution is concerned.”
