While he has mentioned a yearning to do commentary work for WWE again some day, Jim Ross has been telling people that it's unlikely that opportunity will ever come. The long time commentator does not feel that he will return to professional wrestling.
"I had good days and bad days being produced by Vince. No one likes to be yelled at but after working for Bill Watts there was nothing that could be yelled at me by McMahon that I hadn't heard before. Vince is aggressive and a perfectionist and is set in his ways, by and large. Working as a broadcaster isn't easy and being overproduced can detract from a broadcast in my view. I survived aggressive producing better than some because I tried to not take it personally. Good producers should motivate and lead... not rant and rave."
