WWE Hall of Famer and Commentating Legend Jim Ross has confirmed his status for the upcoming World of Sport tapings taking place on May 10th/11th/12th from Norwich’s EPIC Studios in the UK.
As we reported previously; World of Sport Wrestling has scheduled a series of TV Tapings for mid-May. The promotion previously announced television taping dates for May of 2017 as well but abruptly canceled them a few weeks ahead of time. At the time, talent and fans were told the decision had been made to postpone the project.
JR was a major part of the original ‘reboot’ special that aired as part of ITV’s New Year’s Eve offering in 2016 working as the play by play commentator…but it looks as though his involvement in the project has now come to an end. Ross tweeted earlier today (available at the bottom of this page) to confirm that he will not be taking part in the tapings which are slated for the following dates:
- Thursday, May 10th, 630PM
- Friday, May 11th, 2pm & 630pm
- Saturday, May 12th, 2pm & 630pm
World of Sport have not confirmed which on air talents will be taking part in the new tapings, several performers from the original ‘reboot’ episode are now heavily linked with moves to WWE, including PROGRESS Wresting Tag Team Champion Zack Gibson.
