During Ross’ announcement where he addressed his WWE departure, JR said that he wanted to make a return to commentary. Then it was reported that he will sign a multi-year deal with All Elite Wrestling.
Rajah reports that Jim Ross’ deal with AEW is a three-year contract. The fact that the new pro wrestling company is signing him on for three years at around $1 million a year is a very good sign that they have long-term plans for a television product as well.
We will have to wait and see what happens next, but there is a very good chance that the voice of AEW will be the same man who led the WWE Universe through much of the Attitude Era on commentary.
