Jim Ross was happy with his spot at AEW All In.

All In was the biggest night in AEW history in front of the biggest paid attendance of any wrestling show anywhere in the world. The night was headlined by MJF and Adam Cole doing battle for the AEW World Championship in a match filled with drama.

Cole looked set at several moments to turn his back on his friend and tag team partner but in the end, despite MJF retaining his gold, both men embraced and took in the adulation of the London crowd.

Jim Ross happy with his assignments at All In

Being the biggest wrestling show of all time, it was only fitting that the man considered the greatest wrestling announcer to ever don a headset was on the call for some of the show. Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross reflected on his role at All In and said the matches he called were the ones he would have picked:

“I got to the stadium on Sunday afternoon, our call was at 11, I went over at about one. Shortly thereafter, I got my assignments on what I was going to do, and it was the first four matches, but it included Punk and Joe, which I was really excited about. It included Kenny’s match, it included FTR and Young Bucks. It was great. I got lucky and I got to call the matches that I specifically hoped that I would.

“If I picked all the matches, the only thing I would have added was the main event [MJF vs. Adam Cole] because I love those kind of matches with strategy, counters, gameplans. I did my matches, I hopped into a car, went back to the hotel and I had a link to the show and I watched the rest of the show in my hotel room on my iPad.”

Jim Ross recently discussed his future with AEW and is hopeful that he will remain part of Tony Khan’s company despite his current contract nearing its end.
