Jim Ross has affirmed his continued alliance with All Elite Wrestling.

During the latest episode of Grilling JR, Ross disclosed that he has inked a fresh deal with AEW, as his previous contract was due to expire on February 14.

“We wrote a new deal. We wrote a completely new deal. No extension. New contract. It was probably the quickest and easiest negotiation I have ever done in my career of 50 years. That’s all because of Tony Khan’s commitment to me as a broadcaster. He’s always been a fan of my work, which helps your cause when your boss is a fan of your work. We got a new deal.”

“I’ll be back to do more work. I assume it’s going to be centered around the pay-per-view. We’re adding more pay-per-views and big events. I’ll be involved in some degree with those. I’m here, I’m getting better. That will work for me, if I’m working just pay-per-views, I’m very happy to do that,” Ross stated.


Regarding the specifics of the agreement, Ross commented, “I think we’re down for another year. That’s plenty. I’m happy with it. Tony Khan stepped up. Term-wise, financial package-wise, everything was to my liking. I was very blessed to be working with Tony on that deal. He wanted me signed. He got his man and I got my company. It all worked out real well.”

Ross served on commentary for the last two matches of AEW Revolution, including Sting’s farewell bout.

Despite recovering from a broken hip, Ross is making strides in home rehabilitation, demonstrating his dedication to his craft and continued involvement with AEW.
