Jim Ross Removed From WWE Roster

- Jim Ross, a play-by-play commentator for WWE since 1993, has been removed from the company website's SmackDown roster page.

While his talent contract with WWE has expired, he remains employed to the organization in a talent relations capacity.

"My WWE 'talent contract' has ended after a 17+ year run with the company," Ross wrote in a recent blog. "Obviously, I would have liked to have had the ability to do a 'farewell broadcast' but that opportunity never occurred."
