On his career in WWE and how it ended:

“Coming to WWE was the best business decision that I ever made,” Ross said. “It’s like anything else where things run their course. You have a choice to either move on or become unproductive. I wasn’t ready to be turned out to pasture so to speak. I still got some fuel in the tank. Luckily, I got some projects and things people are interested in me doing that I’ve stayed very busy.”

On what the future holds for him:

“I don’t close the door on any opportunity,” Ross said. “I’m a good listener in that regard. I want to be involved in projects like the one-man show concept because that really caters to the wrestling fan base. It’s a very unique show in as much as I present it and my journey from the barn to the Garden. I grew up on the farm as an only child. I was the latchkey kid long before the term was fashionable. I used my imagination and creativity to entertain myself. This was long before cable TV and computers and tablets and all those things.

Would he do a reality show:

“Somebody said to me, ‘How would you like to do a reality show?’ I’ve had several reality shows pitched and ideas pitched to me. I’m not closing any doors, but my first priority is to continue to interact with the wrestling fans who I’ve grown to know and love for 40 years. That is priority one. Then if I do other projects that are outside pro wrestling arena, we will just take those opportunities and evaluate them as they come our way.”
