– Some people within WWE believe that Jim Ross will be back working for them in time for WrestleMania XXX. Some also think he will still be used for interviews on DVD’s and projects like that.
One source noted that JR’s situation with WWE hadn’t been good since WrestleMania and it was just a matter of time until something happened that would be the catalyst towards WWE pulling the trigger, and the WWE 2K14 panel was just that. Triple H, who was JR’s boss while working with developmental, had known JR’s days were numbered as far as Vince McMahon was concerned, so Triple H used to help JR out as much as possible before the call was made.
It was noted that there’s always been an issue with Ross and Vince because JR speaks his mind to Vince when he thinks a direction is wrong. JR has tried to be political about it and not confrontational but Vince is used to people not questioning him.
– It’s being reported in Japan that Tensai was making $100,000 per year with New Japan Pro Wrestling and to lure him away, WWE offered $400,000. It’s also being reported that WWE is trying to sign NJPW stars Karl Anderson and Prince Devitt.
