WWE legend Jim Ross announces he is joining Fox Sports

Jim Ross announced on Twitter Thursday that he was joining Fox Sports.

Ross, who is enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame, had recently noted on his website that he would hopefully be signing with Fox in the near future.

From the post:

"I have not yet signed with Fox but we are obviously close and are hopeful that we can finalize the contract next week. Fox provides an amazing platform for creative work and for the many projects that I am working on during the most unretired time of my life.

"Fox has some potentially, amazing creative ideas for me of which I hope that we get to collaborate on sooner than later."

We hope one of these "amazing creative ideas" is for Jim Ross to call sports other than wrestling.

Ross did have a brief stint as a play-by-play announcer for the XFL, which was more-or-less footballl, so he's shown he's got the versatility.

Ross was a commentator for the WWE since 1993, and began broadcasting professional wrestling matches in 1982.

Speaking of wrestling, below are some of Ross' more impressive calls in the business.
