Jim Ross is unsure what his AEW future holds.
On the December 20th episode of Dynamite, Jim Ross made a triumphant return to AEW Dynamite. The taping was held in his hometown of Oklahoma City and the veteran was given a huge welcome as he took a position at the announce desk for the main event between Jay White and Jon Moxley.
In the end, it was White who grabbed the win, leaving Jon Moxley to take aim at the AEW roster after the show.
Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross broke down how his AEW return came together.
“I knew when Oklahoma City was booked that I would go to the show if I was helping up and felt well enough because I would be here for the holidays for my grandkids and my daughters,” he said. “I just sent out a tweet, casually saying, ‘I look forward to seeing all the guys’ because I was just going to do a little drive-by in the afternoon and say hello to everybody, which I was perfectly fine doing.
Then, it kind of grew into a booking idea, apparently. The response on social media, on Twitter especially, was overwhelming, and that influences a lot of people and their decision-making sometimes. So all of a sudden, it became a thing.
I didn’t know until we started to walk out before my music played, that he was going to introduce me. He just came up and he wanted to do it. So, cool,”
Jim Ross Unsure About AEW Worlds End
Turning his attention to Worlds End on December 30th, the WWE Hall of Famer admitted it’s unlikely he will be in attendance.
“I think it’s doubtful, but I don’t know. That’s entirely up to Tony,” said Ross. “We haven’t discussed it and going to Long Island in December when I haven’t had a trip that long in a while is not something I would relish. However, if called upon, I will come play and I will play as best I can. So, I don’t know.
I’m not being evasive. I’d like to say, ‘Yeah, I’m going to be there. Buy the pay-per-view,’ but I don’t know. You should still buy the pay-per-view.”
The company’s first-ever December pay-per-view will be topped by the World Title clash between MJF and Samoa Joe, while the winner of the Continental Classic will be decided.
