To continue adding fuel to the fire, several readers have emailed in regarding recent comments Jim Ross has made about retirement from WWE. The latest statements were just last week at a Q&A event in Scotland, where J.R. told fans he had no plans to retire, and wanted to continue his work in developmental.
Furthermore, Ross said that he would "never" retire and always be there when WWE needed him. He added that the day he retired is the day they would bury him.
There are many who feel the "Jim Ross retirement" angle is simply a way WWE can spin it to the media. This would certainly add credence to that theory.
