JR: Speaks on His WWE Future, Reveals SSlam Surprise

Nick Paglino

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

"I mentioned I was going to have a ‘surprise’ at Summerslam and the answer is that it’s my guest shot on the Food Network that will be taped early Sunday morning. Some of my peers thought I was going to announce that I was leaving WWE when my contract expires later this year. Sorry to disappoint them, that was a joke BTW, but I’m still not at that bridge yet and those types of decisions will be made later in the year in a professional manner."

"Let me make it clear that I doubt that I ever fully ‘retire’ from the work force and that I will always be involved in something whether it be continuing to build our J.R.’s Family BBQ Brand or doing other projects of which I have an interest. I enjoy working and staying busy and there are many things that I am excited about exploring as time goes on. Would I like to slow down a little and not travel every week? You bet…if it could be arranged but, again, time will tell and it certainly isn’t something that has me concerned."
