Career in professional wrestling

Early career

During his time in college, Ross had spent some time commentating on college radio. With this experience, Ross was given a chance to be a sideline commentator when an announcer in one territory was unable to show up one night. [1]


Shortly after Bill Watts bought out the Mid-South territory, Ross went to work there, becoming their lead play-by-play man in 1986. The first World Title match he called was between Ric Flair and Ted DiBiase. When Jim Crockett, Jr. bought the Mid-South (since renamed the Universal Wrestling Federation) and merged it with his Jim Crockett Promotions group, Ross joined the new company and eventually supplanted Gordon Solie and Tony Schiavone as lead play-by-play man for the National Wrestling Alliance. Ross continued to hone his skills and build his legacy as Jim Crockett Promotions became World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

Ross worked his way up the ladder, yet along the way had a contentious relationship with Eric Bischoff. According to Ross, Bischoff, who reported to him, did a really good job of "selling himself" to executives of WCW's owner Turner Broadcasting. According to Bischoff, Ross mistreated him, and when Eric was promoted to executive producer in 1993, he "justly" fired Ross from the company. Eric Bischoff (born May 27, 1955[1]), is a former professional wrestling promoter and on-screen personality, most known for serving as President of World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and later on-air General Manager of World Wrestling Entertainments RAW brand. ...

Mick Foley claims that Ross resigned from WCW's booking committee.[2] Ross left WCW after being taken off the air by Eric Bischoff.[3] Mick Foley Sr. ...


World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment

1993-1994

After leaving WCW Ross was hired by the World Wrestling Federation (later known as World Wrestling Entertainment), making his debut at WrestleMania IX and taking over for Gorilla Monsoon on WWF Wrestling Challenge the next weekend. Ross worked alongside Bobby Heenan on that show until Heenan left the WWF in late 1993. Ross was originally the main voice of the WWF's pay-per-view events when he was first brought in, calling both WrestleMania IX and the King of the Ring with Heenan and Randy Savage in 1993, although Vince McMahon took his place at SummerSlam 1993.

1994-2003

When Vince McMahon was indicted in 1994, he was unable to continue commentating on Monday Night RAW. After a few weeks of Gorilla Monsoon on play by play, the WWF rehired Ross to fill in for McMahon alongside Randy Savage during the summer of 1994. When McMahon was acquitted Ross was let go by the WWF again, but the Federation quickly rehired him in early 1995, in time for WrestleMania XI. Relocated to the syndicated WWF programming for the majority of the next two years, Ross would rejoin the primary announce team in the summer of 1996.

However, in September 1996, Ross turned heel for the first time in his career. Following Diesel and Razor Ramon leaving the WWF for World Championship Wrestling and debuting there as The Outsiders Ross began to proclaim on television that he was still in touch with "Diesel" and "Razor" and claimed that he would be bringing them back to the WWF soon. Eventually, on the September 23, 1996 episode of Monday Night RAW, Ross delivered a now infamous worked-shoot promo during which he ran down WWF Chairman Vince McMahon (in turn, outing him as chairman and not just a commentator) and debuted his "new" Diesel and Razor, claiming that while working in the WWF "front office" he'd been the man responsible for so many people leaving the company as part of his "revenge" against the WWF for how they treated him in the past.

In 1998 Ross took a break from Raw, due to the death of his mother and the worsening conditon of his Bell's Palsy. He eventually returned to Raw as part of a storyline alleging that Vince fired him because of his condition, but that he would not go down quietly and enlisted the services of "Dr. Death" Steve Williams as his personal "enforcer". The storyline went as far as to have Jim Ross set up his own announce table in front of the official announce table labeled "JR Is War".

Soon after his "firing", JR admitted that it was a "blessing in disguise" because if he had not been relieved of his duties, he would have continued without getting the medical treatment he needed. His colon surgery was infamously spoofed by McMahon in a skit that many considered in poor taste, where McMahon pulled random objects from Ross's colon before pulling out Ross's own head ("There's your problem JR: you had your head up your ass!"), and eventually made out with the nurse.


TV shows leading up to the November 1, 2005 pay-per-view Taboo Tuesday indicated that Steve Austin would face Jonathan Coachman with Ross being "re-hired" if Austin won the match.
