We can report that Jim â<80><9c>J.R.â<80> Ross signed a new contract with World Wrestling Entertainment Monday in Baltimore prior to going on the air for Monday Night Raw. Terms of the agreement were not made public. Rossâ<80><99> long term WWE contract had expired on October 29 and J.R. had continued to work as the â<80><9c>voice of Monday Night Rawâ<80> under the terms of an extension. J.R. joined the WWE in 1993 after beginning his career in 1974 and previously worked in the wrestling business for WCW, Jim Crockett Promotions, UWF, Mid South Wrestling, and Championship Wrestling. Ross has broadcast more major wrestling events than any other broadcaster in the history of the business. We expect J.R. to address his new working relationship with the WWE on this site later in the week unless the avid OU Sooner fan is too busy preparing to attend the OU-OSU Bedlam football game this Saturday afternoon in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
