  • Share

WWE personality Jim Ross recently spoke at-length with The Gazette in Iowa about his current role both on-screen and off-screen with WWE. He described himself as being a “senior adviser, like a consultant” with the company and talked about his role on-screen that he called a “recurring character.”

Off-screen, he says that he’s a “senior adviser in talent relations and talent-development [that is] actively engaged in recruiting, training, and observing rookies in the system, the next generation of sports-entertainment performers that are trained in the WWE’s facility in Tampa.” Ross also noted that he spends “more time in that area than [when he was the] executive vice president and the primary play-by-play voice of the brand.”
