WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently published a blog regarding his future in pro wrestling. Here is what he wrote;

“To clear up some speculation regarding my return to pro wrestling, while I am a ‘free agent’ as it relates to broadcasting pro wrestling events, my interest level in pursuing such is moderate at best. Would I re-engage the process in some form? Yes, but I’m uncertain as to what those terms would have to be. I still love the business and get the ‘itch’ to broadcast the genre that I spend 40 years of my life doing but there are so many things that I’m doing or going to do career wise that I simply don’t know where the pro wrestling opportunities fit. Time will tell but I’m still a student of that game and more importantly a fan. 

I have personally had zero talks about doing pro wrestling in the future but there has been some contact with my representative but as I understand it those talks were exploratory and preliminary at best. I’ve been asked about the New Japan January 4 PPV event but I’d say that jumping on board with that assignment is a long shot at this time although I do wish all involved the best in this endeavor. I can certainly see where the PPV component in the English speaking, worldwide marketplace has potential if it is marketed strategically and aggressively.”

Former WWE Intercontinental champion Kofi Kingston recently talked to the Independent. Here are some highlights;

NXT Champion Adrian Neville:
“Some of the things he does are just incredible, he calls himself the man that gravity forgot, and he just defies gravity with everything he does. For me, as a fan, I think he’s going to be one of the greatest of all time when he gets it all going. As a performer I would love to get in there with him and mix it up, I think our styles would mesh well and produce a great match for the people watching.” 

His new stable with Big E and Xavier Woods:
“I’m always trying to climb the ladder, and right now myself, Big E and Xavier Woods are trying to get a team off the ground. We have been having a lot of matches on live events, and we are trying to get something going. If ,and when it does take off, it should be very entertaining, and something people can get behind. As of now, we’re just three smart athletic friends hanging out and having a good time. As a matter of fact, when we come to the UK I’ll be teaming with Big E, and Xavier will probably be there too as we’ll be taking on the Wyatt Family. It’s awesome, I tell everyone that the UK is one of my favourite places to go.”

Wanting the WWE World Heavyweight Title:
“That’s what everyone always strives for. Myself, I always tell people that if you’re not getting better you’re only getting worse, and every day I try and be better than yesterday. The ultimate goal in mind being to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion. That’s what you always strive for, and if you don’t believe that you can then you probably shouldn’t be in WWE.”
