History: (From wwe.com)
After graduating from Bill Kinnamon's Umpire School in 1975, Oklahoma native Jim Ross began his long and successful career in sports by working the sidelines as a referee for the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Conference. After hanging up the black and white striped shirt after 16 years, Ross worked as a color commentator for the Atlanta Falcons for one season in 1992 and was the weekly part-time host of the "Jerry Glanville Show." All that came to a halt when Ross joined up with the WWE and became one of the most successful commentators in its rich history. Since 1993, Ross has been a master of all trades in the Stamford, Connecticut-based company. Since joining WWE at WrestleMania IX, he has racked up more hours behind the microphone than quite possibly anyone else in the business. From broadcasting major Pay-Per-View events and RAW on Monday nights, Ross has done it all in WWE... and then some!

Many ring critics rate Ross as the most knowledgeable broadcaster on the scene today. Along with his broadcast position, the veteran is responsible for the Ross Report, a very popular feature at WWE.COM.

Ross is a devoted family man who enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and children. Many have attempted to copy Ross' style of broadcasting, but few will ever accomplish what this Oklahoma native has been able to do his entire career--succeed as a two-sport broadcaster on the gridiron and in the squared circle of the WWE!
