Jim Ross to receive award for "lifetime contribution" to wrestling
The Cauliflower Alley Club has a great article on the career of Jim Ross at http://tinyurl.com/ychbgrn. The club is a non-profit fraternal organization who's membership includes retired and active pro wrestlers and boxers in North America. They host an annual reunion dinner which has traditionally been attended by celebrities and other professional athletes. This year, Ross will receive an award for his lifetime contributions to the wrestling business. Regarding his WWE future, he was quoted as saying, "I think I could be part of a plan to positively effect the broadcasting aspect of wrestling; and to have some part in creating the next wave of main eventers; developing new stars. That’s what I’d be interested in doing."
Ross noted on his Twitter that he was attending Wrestlemania as a fan and wasn't aware as yet that he would be calling any action.
