Jim Ross Says The WMania 26 Return Rumor is “Not Accurate”

Jim Ross has updated his blog over at JRsBarBQ.com. Below are some highlights:

"Read on line where I was returning to WWE at WrestleMania. This info was attributed to my friend and former broadcast partner Jerry Lawler. I don’t know if I confused the King when we last spoke or if he was simply misquoted which is more likely but the story is not accurate. When talking with Jerry about when I was going to return, I mentioned that there was NO time table due to not knowing when the facial nerve on the right side of my face was going to kick start. I mentioned that IF it was going to be close to WrestleMania that it might be good just to wait and return at WM26. The facial nerve could ignite tomorrow…or next week…or 2-4 months from now. No one knows."

"My contract negotiations with WWE are still to be finalized but, as I feel in all things regarding my life. I remain confident and positive that those contractual issues will work out to every one’s satisfaction. Doing weekly TV is a grind with all my other WWE responsibilities that I execute from my home office. The travel is something that I do not miss… If you want to know exactly what is happening with my career I suggest you check out this site and my blogs because I can pretty much guarantee that I will know first unless one of my doctor’s is talking to a wrestling website."
