Jim Ross Confirms Fox Sports Role

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was recent featured on FoxSports.com, and clarified in a new blog post that he is very close to signing a deal with Fox. 

Fox has some potentially, amazing creative ideas for me of which I hope that we get to collaborate on sooner than later. Fox provides an amazing platform for creative work and for the many projects that I am working on during the most unretired time of my life.  

We have been reporting that JR had meetings with a "major sports concern", and this is more than likely Fox Sports. Ross also stated that he will be working with WWE again in the near future, doing interviews for an upcoming Paul Heyman DVD. 

Once details are worked out we will schedule a time for me to head to WWE HQ and tell a few…dozen Heyman stories. I'm very honored to have been requested to be a part of this production as it was me who gave Paul his first broadcast gig and taught him the ropes as best that I could. Paul was so high strung and outspoken that many within WCW did not want to work with him but I saw talent in the abrasive albeit highly intelligent Jewish kid from Scarsdale, N.Y.
