Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made a name for himself as a commentator in WWE. He has delivered some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling. It seems Jim Ross is glad he doesn’t have to listen to Vince McMahon anymore.

Ross worked in WWE for several years, which is why he knows the inner workings of the company. He has extensively worked with Vince McMahon and it has not always worked out in his favor as he has been the subject of ridicule numerous times.

Jim Ross is currently working in AEW and is also aware of how different Tony Khan is from Vince McMahon. While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, the WWE Hall Of Famer talked about working with AEW President Tony Khan. Ross appreciated that he doesn’t have to deal with Vince McMahon yelling and screaming into his headset in AEW.

”Anyway it’s been a fun ride. Tony Khan facilitates that Tony Khan is a big fan of Tony’s. Tony is a big fan of mine and I think he kind of living the dream right now. I know I am, I love it. He lets us work, he’s not in our ear he’s not cursing, he’s not yelling and screaming and acting possessed.


He just treats people really good and the better you treat people, the more they are gonna invest in makin your business better. They’re no pissed off all the time or frustrated. Negative energy, negative energy that’s not telling me. So it’s good for us.”

Jim Ross is certainly more than happy to be working under Tony Khan in AEW, as it is likely he will be ending his career with the company. Regardless, he will always be grateful for his time in WWE as well.
