AEW brought a big show with All In London, but Wembley Stadium might not be the best place to call pro wrestling. Outside situations can lead to a lot of things that you just don’t have to worry about when there is a roof over your head.

Jim Ross has been a part of the pro wrestling business for decades, and he’s called the action in a ton of different settings. It seems that commentating at ringside is not his favorite thing to do if it’s an outside venue.

During Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke about the situation with AEW All In’s setting in Wembley Stadium. It might have been cool to see that huge stadium with 81,000 fans inside, but that led to other issues.

“You know, doing a show outside dries you up, it’s challenging, and I think my peers, my other announcers can attest to that after they experienced it. It’s just a bit different on your respiratory system, it’s good though, I had so much fun.”


Jim Ross might have needed to alter his entrance due to the CM Punk drama, but the Wembley Stadium crowd still heard his song as he got to wave his hat to the crowd. Only time will tell if AEW will be able to replicate All In London’s success, but it appears that this year’s show went as smooth as it could, all things considered.

AEW already booked Wembley Stadium for All In London 2 on August 25th, 2024. So we’ll have to see if Jim Ross is able to make the trip, if he’s even with AEW at that point due to his expiring contract.

How do you think that Jim Ross’ time at All In turned out? Did you enjoy the Wembley Stadium setup? Sound off in the comments to let us know what you think!
