Legends are made in the sport of wrestling, and it comes with a lot of hard work inside of the ring. Well, the career of on wrestling legend is coming to an end, and he was never even meant to step foot inside the ring. WWE's legendary announcer Jim Ross announced on Sept. 11, 2013, that he is retiring.
Ross has given 20 years to the WWE and even more in the sport of wrestling as a whole.
Jim Ross made his WWE debut back in 1993 at "WrestleMania IX" and has been the voice of both "Monday Night Raw" and "SmackDown" for more than two decades. Ross is a true legend with the company and was even inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2007 by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
There are a lot of rumors flying around online that it may have been Vince McMahon that actually called for the end to Ross' career with the WWE.
One report states that Ross met with McMahon on Wednesday and the decision was made that Ross' 20-year tenure with the WWE was over. It appears as if it was ultimately McMahon who made the final decision.
Vince McMahon took to Twitter shortly after the official announcement was made and posted:
"Thank you @JRsBBQ for 20 years of service with @WWE."
