Blitzkrieg

After officially signing a contract with World Championship Wrestling, Jay Ross, wrestling as Blitzkrieg, made his debut for WCW against Rey Mysterio Jr. on the company's flagship television show Monday Nitro on February 8, 1999. Over the next few months, he wrestled in the company's cruiserweight division against fellow cruiserweights Juventud Guerrera, Billy Kidman and Silver King on Thunder. Blitzkrieg later faced Guerrera in a rematch at Spring Stampede, with the winner becoming the number one contender for the Cruiserweight Championship.
Ross, while still using the Blitzkrieg ring name, continued to work on the independent circuit, primarily in Southern California with Revolution Pro Wrestling and All Pro Wrestling, while continuing to work at his computer company. On December 12, 2004 at a Wrestle Association "R" event in Japan, Ross handed over his gimmick and mask over to Jack Evans, thus making Evans Blitzkrieg II for a short time and officially marking the full retirement of Ross from in-ring competition. After retiring, Ross began working full time as a computer technician.
