Home » WWE News » More Backstage News on JR’s WWE Retirement, WWE Superstar to Take Over His Duties?

– There were some rumors within WWE about Jim Ross being let go days before it actually happened. On September 10th, the day before Ross was let go, someone in WWE’s book department called an author to tell him that WWE had chosen him to write JR’s autobiography.

One WWE source thought that it was weird for WWE to even publicize his retirement since if you are a casual viewer of the product you never see Ross anyway and would probably presume he’d already retired. It was also noted that WWE cutting JR loose would never have happened even a few years back and that it proves that Vince McMahon doesn’t care about TNA at all.

Regarding JR’s job working with talents in WWE NXT, there’s speculation that William Regal may be the guy who takes those duties over.

    No, not even remotely close.

    Regal might be respected, but it doesn’t mean he was used correctly

    Well I cant argue with JRs replacement choice. Who better then one of the best all around performers of all time in Regal. It seems wwe learned there lesson at least from the last time they gave one of JRs backstage jobs away, when they replaced him with the untalented nobody Johnny Ace, who didn’t even come close to filling JRs shoes and even worse was not respected and was mostly hated by his peers in the locker room. That wont be an issue with Regal as he is respected by id say if not 100% of the locker room, then at least by 99.9% of them. And he has all the knowledge JR has on top of all his in ring experience. The nxt guys are in phenomenal hands.

    Hell I’m a regular viewer and I thought JR was retired.
