"I'm not that close to Hogan and never have been. He's a businessman. End of story."
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.
Jim Ross has answered his final question about Chris Benoit. The long time WWE commentator has told fans to stop asking him any further questions about the former world champion, as he is tired of repeating himself on the matter.
"Will Seth Rollins have the hardest time making it in WWE? I don't know why some automatically assume this. Rollins has arguably had more, better matches than any Shield member on TV. I wouldn't sleep on Rollins success if I were a fan."
"Hope the Brodus Clay creative direction change works. Good guy, truly a fan of the business and who has the tools, or so I feel, to be a "monster heel. Brodus was one of my favorite guys to brainstorm with back in the FCW days."
"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."
The belief within in the industry is that Vince McMahon is preventing Jim Ross from working for TNA as a commentator.
