Originally published at Jim Ross announces upcoming book recounting '50 Unforgettable Calls'

Jim Ross will reflect on the highlights of his legendary professional wrestling commentary career—50 of them to be exact—in an upcoming book.

Business Is About To Pick Up! 50 Years of Wrestling in 50 Unforgettable Calls is expected to be released on May 7, per a listing by publisher Penguin Random House. The book will look back on the moments that defined Ross’ lengthy career in the business.

Ross wrote the 300-page book alongside author Paul O’Brien, whom he has collaborated with in the past. The book aims to “immerse” readers in the “most dramatic moments, biggest shocks, and history-making firsts.”

Ross has been public for months about his upcoming book. Last September, he shared that written pieces from Bret Hart, John Cena, Mick Foley, and Jerry Lawler were all sent to him recently.

The book promises to take readers through the many eras of Ross’ career. From being on the call for matches involving Hart and Steve Austin to his involvement with AEW in recent years.

Ross continues to be a part-time commentator for AEW events. He was on the call earlier this month for Sting’s retirement match at AEW Revolution.

The upcoming release won’t be Ross’ debut as an author. He has published two memoirs in the past: Slobberknocker: My Life in Wrestling came out in 2017, and was followed up three years later by Under the Black Hat: My Life in the WWE and Beyond.
