WWE announcer Jerry Lawler recently did an interview with The UK Sun in which he talks about when Jim Ross might return to WWE TV and how WWE has reacted to the news of Hulk Hogan signing with TNA Wrestling. Below are two excerpts:
On Jim Ross’ Return: "There’s a strong possibility that WrestleMania could be when he makes a return. Even if it’s a situation where he could return a little bit before that, it might be best to just wait and let him come back at Mania — as the comeback of JR would be a big draw."
On Hulk Hogan Joining TNA: "I’ve told this to a lot of people, and I don’t know if they believe it, but no one in the WWE ever talks about TNA. There is no concern whatsoever. They don’t acknowledge, think or worry about them, they’re not even a blip on the radar screen. Even with Hulk Hogan, I don’t think the WWE feel they are any threat at all."
