Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made name for himself as a commentator in WWE. He has delivered some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling.
Being a veteran, Jim Ross is well aware of how the pro wrestling world functions and how certain things in AEW can be perceived. Fans also largely agree with what he has to say as well.
Good ol’ JR has been the voice of AEW since the very beginning, but the years are finally catching up to him. While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross talked about him being a full-time member of AEW Rampage. Ross stated that he believes he will end his career in that way as well.
“We’re trying real hard to try and make that one hour show, improve it and make it better. I like working with Excalibur and Schiavone. I think that’s our best group. At least for me, because I’m working. I miss being on Dynamite, but I’m glad Tony put me on Rampage because I want to help build that brand, that was the concept. Put JR on Friday nights, maybe viewers will tune in out of old time sake or whatever the reason may be. It’s an hour show, that’s how I started my career, looks like that’s how I’m going to end it, doing hour shows, if that’s the case, that’s fine with me.”
Jim Ross also has no intentions of returning to WWE. We will have to wait and see how long Jim Ross will keep on working as a commentator in AEW for the time being.
