with JR officially "retiring" from WWE. Even though some people believed he was fired. Either way, he is officially gone from the company. Be perfect for JR to be hired and replace Jon Ankit. Keep Mike Goldberg but replace Jon "The Insomnia Cure" Ankit with JR and booms both commentaries with non stop action.

He actually wasnt bad when he stepped outside the wwe and called games for the short lived xfl. I do believe it is his health that would prevent him from doing any kind of long term play by play. Phone Post

Not for commentary but I'd love a Voice Versus type show with Ross sitting down with fighters. Phone Post

It doesn't have to be commentary..even if they brought him in as an analyst for segments on UFC tonight it would be good. JR is a talented man and pretty knowledgeable in MMA. Phone Post

The more I think about it, the more I think Jeff Ross would be a better commentator than Jim Ross. 

 

Joe: Hendricks really needs to start tucking his chin!

Jeff: I wish you'd tuck your chin so I wouldn't have to look at you. Seriously, you look like a severely alopecic chimp.
