It appears that recent rumors of Jim Ross meeting with FOX Sports officials were indeed true, as JR has debuted a new column over at FOX Sports, and his first entry discusses the current Ric Flair NFL controversy after he gave a pep talk to the San Francisco 49ers. The following is an excerpt from Ross' column, which you can read in full at this link.
"The controversy involving WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Ric Flair and his beloved Charlotte Panthers, which arose after the Nature Boy flew from his hometown, the Queen City, to Green Bay last week to give the San Francisco 49ers a pep talk, has the makings of a great, pro wrestling story line.
Perhaps it is.
Flair has been a proud North Carolinian for over 40 years. So then why would Flair sell out the Panthers during his motivational speech to the 49ers?"
