Nick Paglino

We were the first to exclusively report this morning that WWE announcer Jim Ross has indeed had a meeting with TNA officials. You can read that report by CLICKING HERE.

In an update to the developing story, Jason Powell of ProWrestling.net has added that in addition to meeting with TNA officials, Ross has also had meetings with HDNet officials concerning the possibility of calling MMA or UFL Football games. Of course, one could speculate that calling Ring of Honor matches would have also been discussed, the but the report seems indicate that the two sides were talking more about football and MMA than wrestling.

Additionally, it was reported that Ross expressed an interest to do more in TNA than just broadcast, as he wanted to work as a behind-the-scenes man in the company, much like he did in WWE when he was involved in talent relations.

The general feeling coming out the of the meeting was that Ross was not interested in committing to TNA, and that he is looking to pursue other projects outside of pro wrestling if he does not re-sign with WWE.
