— According to the Wrestling Observer, Jim Ross’ decision to retire was partly driven by Vince McMahon. The pair reportedly met on Wednesday to discuss Ross’s future with the company, which has led to this decision for him to “retire from WWE.”
Following the incident at WWE’s 2K14 symposium, Ross was partly blamed for Ric Flair’s behavior which led to his own future being up in the air. The consensus was that Ross, as host, should have intervened when Flair went off the rails and started making “controversial” remarks about WWE.
— On JR’s retirement, Vince McMahon tweeted the following:
“Thank you @JRsBBQ for 20 years of service with WWE.”
