​Bah Gawd, WWE Legend JR Is Coming Back For Wrestlemania

The WWE's most famous announcer, Jim Ross, will be coming back for the biggest show of the year on Sunday.

The commentator's return was announced after last night's ceremony at the WWE Hall of Fame, which saw DDP, Beth Phoenix, The Rock 'n' Roll Express and Teddy Long among the class of '17.

Headlining the event was Olympic gold medalist and former WWE-champion Kurt Angle who made his return to the organisation he departed under messy circumstances in 2006.

He even revisited the 'Sexy Kurt' song from his feud with Shawn Michaels, which you can watch here...

Jim Ross' wife Jan died last week, resulting in an outpouring of grief from the wrestling world. But despite his personal tragedy, the voice of sports entertainment is understood to be making his return tomorrow at Wrestlemania 33.

The 65-year-old was released from the WWE in 2013 and has since been working independent wrestling events.


However, PWInsider reports he will be at the announce desk for one match and it is understood to be either Undertaker vs Roman Reigns or Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar.

Many fans believe he will call Roman Reigns match against the Undertaker, as the WWE legend is reportedly facing retirement after Wrestlemania 33.

JR always said he hoped to commentate Taker's last match, so it would provide a fitting end to the Deadman's illustrious career.
