Jim Ross will return to commentate on WWE UK Championship

Legendary commentator Jim Ross will be commentating on the US broadcast of the WWE UK Championship.

Jim Ross will be returning to commentate on the special screenings of the WWE UK Championship, joining Nigel McGuinness. The special events took place in Norwich earlier this month.

“I’m excited to announce that I will join the talented Nigel McGuinness to broadcast the recently taped, WWE matches from Norwich, England and these bouts will air on the WWE Network soon,” he confirmed. “Happy for this opportunity to call bouts involving new wrestlers, for me, and a new broadcast partner which freshens up all facets of the process.”

For those wondering about the future of Ross’ involvement in the sport, he added: WWE has other bookings for me as well and we will announce them when they are completely finalized. So, ‘Business is Picking Up!’ I am happy to say.”
