Ross revealed the nature of his new contract in an interview with Fox Sports, “It has a specific number of dates that I’m obligated to work, which I think is good for me. So look at it this way: I got my jersey back. I got brought back to my home team, and my opportunities back in WWE, I’m sure, will be multi-fold.
They’ve got a lot of things that I can contribute, and I’ve been so blessed in the business that I’ve done so many different things. “I’ve been an administrator and a syndicator, a marketing rep, a VP of broadcasting, a head of talent relations. But the fun part is what I did tonight.
“I hope to have more ‘fun part’ assignments in the future, but I’ve got my jersey back. So if the team needs me to play, to work more than they anticipated because they need it, I’m in.”
If last night’s reception was any indication, WWE fans are very happy to have Good ‘Ol J.R. back.
