Jim Ross is one of the most well-known and respected broadcaster in the history of professional wrestler. He has had a hall of fame career as a broadcaster.
Currently, Jim Ross serves as the broadcaster for AEW. But prior to that, he served in many backstage roles for the WWE apart from being a color commentator. His legendary career saw him get inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2007.
In a recent Q&A edition of his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross explained if he would ever return to the WWE if the opportunity arose. He answered that he was happy with AEW, and he plans to finish his career with the promotion.
“Those rhetorical questions are hard to address. I’m a businessman and I’m very happy to be in the business with the company that I’m doing it with. What would happen if I didn’t have that job and somebody else wanted me to work for them, work with them, or what have you? I take a case by case scenario, but that’s not something I’m looking at doing. I told Tony Kahn this that I’d like to finish my career, my full time career, at AEW.
Maybe it’s coming in and doing a pay per view. Maybe it’s coming in at a special like Battle the Belts, or the pay per views. Like I said, it’s something that would be interesting to do. I don’t know. It’s hard to sort of position yourself there because the last thing I want to do is get another full time job. I don’t want to be on the road every week at that stage of my life. I want to fulfill this contract as great as I can and earn my keep, and stay where I’m at until it’s time to move on.
We have to be honest about it, realistically. At some point in time, you got to reevaluate. You just have to, and at my age, it’s especially important. I don’t know about another job. Would I want to do another full time job at AEW or WWE or anywhere else? Probably not. Again, if I was 40, or 50, or 60, I would probably reconsider that answer. But I’m not. We have to be realistic about sh*t.”
Currently 70 years old, Jim Ross is near the end of his career. So, it will be interesting to see how and when he decides to call it quits on his career.
