Jim Ross Comments On Calling The Undertaker's Final Match, Speaking With Roman Reigns Prior To WrestleMania 33

Jim Ross Comments On Calling The Undertaker's Final Match, Speaking With Roman Reigns Prior To WrestleMania 33

As previously noted, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross made a special appearance at Sunday night's WrestleMania 33 event to call the show's main event, which saw The Undertaker face Roman Reigns in what has turned out to be The Undertaker's final match. It has since been revealed that Ross has now signed a two-year contract with WWE.

Ross has also since taken part in an interview with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard regarding not only calling the match, but also having the opportunity to speak with Reigns prior to the match beginning.

Below are highlights of the interview:

Calling What May Have Been the Final Match of The Undertaker's Career

"The Undertaker has been a big part of my professional life since we got him from World Class Championship Wrestling to WCW in 1989. Then, of course, when I was here in WWE as head of the talent relations department, The Undertaker was the captain of the team. He was even bigger in the locker room than he was in the ring, which may be hard for some people to fathom. He was the conscience of the WWE, and Mark Calaway is everything a professional wrestler should aspire to be. He took ownership of his TV persona, in-ring persona, and he knew he had to use his size and athleticism to make himself even more special. He’s left pieces of his body all over the world, and I have so much respect for him. I was feeling strong nerves and prominent apprehension because I knew the ramifications of what the match could develop into, and it was very emotional in that regard."

Calling a Match Featuring Roman Reigns

"Nobody gave me any announcer notes, so what you heard me say about Reigns was real. He’s a big, athletic, young guy with so much potential. I like him and I don’t particularly care if fans think he’s a villain or a fan favorite. I believe he’s a star – simple as that. I’m not caught up in his creative – I don’t care if he’s a babyface or a heel. I just like to see big athletic guys that are tough and demonstrate that in the wrestling ring, and I thought he did that well. He took a lot of punishment, he sold well, and he kept fighting. He and I had a very good talk before the show tonight, and I was very impressed with his maturity. This kid could be the future of WWE and he certainly will be a locker room leader."
