While its not yet a done deal, it looks like WWE announcer Jim Ross will be making the move from a scripted sport to the real deal for Fox Sports pretty soon.
Ross had this to say from his blog:
“I have not yet signed with Fox but we are obviously close and are hopeful that we can finalize the contract next week. Fox provides an amazing platform for creative work and for the many projects that I am working on during the most unretired time of my life.
“Fox has some potentially, amazing creative ideas for me of which I hope that we get to collaborate on sooner than later.”
Ross was a longtime announcer for WWE before signing off in 2013. He also had a brief stint doing play-by-play for Jim McMahon’s failed XFL football league, which is kinda like football… H/T USA Today Sports.
