AEW All In was a tremendous success in Wembley Stadium. Jim Ross was also around for the action, but he didn’t watch all of it live in the venue.
Jim Ross previously spoke about what he had to go through in order to make it to London for All In. His leg was in a bit of pain, but he made things work. That being said, Good ole JR had a much better idea of what to do after his job was done in Wembley Stadium.
During his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross revealed that he actually took a taxi to his hotel after he called the first four matches at All In London. That was all he was assigned for the show, so he went back to relax a bit to enjoy the rest of it in his hotel.
“I got to the stadium on Sunday afternoon, at around 1. Shortly after, I got my assignment of which matches I was doing, which was the first four matches, which included CM Punk and Samoa Joe, and it included Kenny’s match, and it included the Young Bucks and FTR, it was great. I actually got lucky, and I got to call the matches I specifically hoped that I would. If I could have added it, I would have called the main event.”
“So, what I did, is I did my matches, and I went back to the hotel, and I had a link to the show, so I watched the rest of the show on my hotel room from my iPad. I might have missed one match, like ten-minute drive to the hotel. It was cool, man.”
Jim Ross also noted that AEW provided the commentary team with very nice equipment for their commentary as well. That being said, a stadium show can always provide unexpected struggles.
We will have to see what Jim Ross does next in his AEW career. His contract could be up very soon, and it’s anyone’s guess how Tony Khan wants to use him. That being said, Jim Ross has given no indication that he wants to hang up his hat any time soon.
What’s your take on Jim Ross in AEW? Should the company do what they can to keep him around? Sound off in the comments if you love hearing his voice call the action!
