Jim Ross Unsure Of His Role For AEW All In
AEW will bring All In to Wembley Stadium in London, England in August and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross will be making the trip for the massive event.
Many were surprised when AEW announced that their London debut was going to be taking place in the cavernous, 90,000+ seat Wembley Stadium. However, that surprise turned to delight for supporters of the company when over the first week of tickets going on sale, over 60,000 were sold for the event – more than WWE sold for Clash at the Castle in Cardiff, Wales in 2022.
While no matches have been announced for the event, announcer Jim Ross has confirmed that he’ll be making the trip with the company. Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross admitted that while he was set to be in London, he remains unsure of what his role will be:
“I’m excited about it, I’m glad I’m going. I don’t know what I’m doing. That’s the great thing about my career. I’ve done it all, without sounding like a jerk, all roles. I’ve done color, I’ve done play-by-play, I’ve been a host, blah, blah, blah. So, I don’t know what I’m doing, but it doesn’t matter.
“I’ll be a part of the event and that’s what’s gonna be cool as hell. Guys like me are, you know, I don’t know how many more rodeos I got, and some of that decision isn’t really up to me, but nonetheless, I’m excited as hell about this trip.
“I wish I was in a position, and I might be, to see the expressions on faces of the talents when they go out headed to the ring. That’s when it strikes you. That’s when you get engulfed in the passion and the enthusiasm, and you can’t prepare for it.”
Jim Ross has only been used for select parts of pay-per-view presentations in recent months following his move from Dynamite to Rampage but the voice of many fans’ childhoods would be sure to receive a warm reception if he got an outing at All In.
