CM Punk Asked About WrestleMania Return

CM Punk has responded to rumors that he’ll be returning at WrestleMania on Twitter (and by rumors we mean a fan asked him). Unsurprisingly, it won’t be happening:

Jim Ross Would Happily Work With WWE

Legendary announcer Jim Ross on the other hand, is more than open to working with WWE again. It would just have to be on his terms. He told the Toronto Sun: “(WWE knows) that if they got into a bind somewhere down the road and they need my services for something that I’d be there in a heartbeat, and I would.”

“But to go back and work full-time for anybody, at my stage of life, isn’t something I worked all of my life to do at this age. I always wanted to have some level of independence, from a financial standpoint and from a professional standpoint as far as my skills are concerned so that I could kind of pick and choose these projects so I wouldn’t have to be on the road every week and I could enjoy my life, I could enjoy my wife, I could enjoy my football, my sports passions, we could travel some, we could enjoy things that we’ve earned. They know that I’m always there if they needed and I know they’re always there if I need them, but we all had to grow and they’ve got to prepare for the future. Jim Ross is not the future. Jim Ross is a viable part of the past.”

The Undertaker Not Wrestling

Speaking of JR, he revealed in his latest blog that the Undertaker is in no condition to wrestle:

“Great seeing Undertaker on the 900th episode of SD Live Tuesday night. The Deadman is still rehabbing a hip,procedure that he recently underwent to address a chronic, hip ailment. As much as I’d love to see Taker back in the ring more, I don’t see that happening but I’m certainly prepared to say I’m was wrong … Certainly Taker could be effectively worked into various storylines as a recurring character which adds additional star power to the SD Live presentation.”
