Jim Ross Plans To Stay With AEW

Jim Ross

Jim Ross wants to remain All Elite for some time to come.

For many Jim Ross is simply the voice of wrestling as the best play-by-play announcer to ever call the action in the squared circle. Many have grown up with JR’s voice providing the lyrics to some of the biggest moments in wrestling history and now the WWE Hall of Famer continues to call the action for AEW, chiefly on its Collision show.

Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross revealed his intentions moving forward as he nears the end of his deal with Tony Khan’s company but says he’d like to stay put if he can:

“I hope so, Connie. I don’t have any intentions of changing my employer at all. I like working for AEW. I like working with these talents. I really enjoy being on Collision because I think we’re trying to develop a little different feel for the TV presentation. Not better than Dynamite, but different than Dynamite.

“So my plan is to continue in some role, and that’s entirely up to Barry Bloom, my agent, and of course, Tony Khan. They hold the cards. They’re doing the negotiating. So my goal is to stay at AEW and contribute and help wherever I can. So hopefully everything will work out okay. We’ll know in a few weeks, that’s for sure.”

Jim Ross on the call at Wembley Stadium

Jim Ross received a rapturous reception from those inside Wembley Stadium before All In began on pay-per-view. He called the first half of the show with Excalibur and Nigel McGuinness. That meant Ross was at the announce table for the Real World Championship match between Samoa Joe and CM Punk and missed the backstage altercation between Punk and Jack Perry that led to both men being suspended by the company.
