Jim Ross Interview: Being Away from WWE, His Retirement, Possibly Doing a Reality TV Show

- WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently spoke with The Miami Herald to promote his upcoming "Ringside" events. Here are some highlights:

Being away from WWE:
"I miss being around a lot of my friends in WWE and people that I built relationships with over the last many decade. If you’ve lived in a certain community or been an inhabitant of an area and you move away, you certainly miss people. You miss the adrenaline rush that came with the great moments. I got very busy and found a lot of things that people were interested in me doing within a matter of days of me leaving WWE. So I really haven’t had time or enough empty days that I would sit around and bemoan the fact that I am no longer in WWE. I miss it and had a great run there, over 20 years."

Retirement:
"I haven’t bought any golf clubs or fishing pole or any of those things, but I have stayed very busy just getting our team together for a controlled, albeit busy 2014. That took a little time to get everybody in place and entertain the different things that come our way. So I took the fall to finish the football season with my [Oklahoma] Sooners and went to all of their games. I stayed busy on infrastructure and getting a plan put together with really good people to have a productive 2014 in an arena where I can control my time and manage my time in strategic way."

A possible reality TV show:
"Somebody said to me, ‘How would you like to do a reality show?’ I’ve had several reality shows pitched and ideas pitched to me. I’m not closing any doors, but my first priority is to continue to interact with the wrestling fans who I’ve grown to know and love for 40 years. That is priority one. Then if I do other projects that are outside pro wrestling arena, we will just take those opportunities and evaluate them as they come our way."
