AEW All In was undoubtedly the biggest event for AEW so far, as it ended up breaking numerous records from start to finish. The company declared that 81,035 paid fans were in attendance during the pay-per-view, which was astounding. Jim Ross was also part of AEW All In and it appears Ross assured fans that the attendance for AEW All In was legitimate.
Jim Ross managed to be a part of AEW All In as he called the action for a few matches at the event. Despite AEW announcing such a massive number of paid attendance figures, there were many people who were doubtful that AEW managed such a huge number and believed the company was lying.
While speaking during his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross talked about AEW All In’s attendance figures and made it clear that the paid attendance figure is very legitimate and nothing false.
”Chris Jericho got to live his dream singing before 80,000+. I wonder how many people you think are actually in the arena. We knew that 81,035 paid, it’s a key thing, it was a legitimate paid thing cause I know people. I said we’re gonna get a real number, we’re gonna b****** wrestling here. No no, whatever was announced is exactly what it is.”
Jim Ross is also in negotiations for signing new contract with AEW. We will have to wait and see what’s next in store for Jim Ross, as the company is currently on a hot streak following All In and All Out back to back.
