Jim Ross, the legendary wrestling commentator, has been the voice of several generations of fans, dedicating decades of his life to the business. Currently, Ross is a major part of AEW, where he continues to showcase his passion and expertise for the sport. As part of his duties in AEW, good ol’ JR has admitted that he wants to do more work in AEW.

Jim Ross signed 1-year deal with the company earlier this year and has been an active part of the commentary team ever since, something that has certainly delighted fans in big way. He also confirmed he will be part of the commentary team for pay-per-views going forward.

In his “Grilling JR” podcast, Ross mentioned his role with AEW, stating that Tony Khan hired him to cover the company’s pay-per-views, and he’s thrilled with the opportunity. With AEW scheduling pay-per-views approximately once a month, this arrangement suits Ross’s current workload.

However, Ross also revealed that he has suggested to Khan the possibility of expanding his commentary role. Specifically, he proposed the idea of calling the go-home episode of AEW Collision before a pay-per-view event.


Tony Khan hired me back to do pay-per-views, and I’m tickled to death to be there on them. So [having PPVs] once a month is great for me personally. And I hope that somewhere along the way there’s another assignment or two thrown in there at times, either on Dynamite or Collision.

This concept aligns with Ross’s passion for commentary and his desire to be more involved in AEW’s programming. Ross’s suggestion demonstrates his continued enthusiasm for professional wrestling and his interest in contributing more to AEW’s broadcasts.

I think pay-per-views is what Tony had slotted for me to come in and contribute to. They’re going to be once a month and that’s when I’ll be there. But I would not be surprised if somewhere down the road — you know, I suggested this to him, maybe me doing a Collision on the go-home show, the last Collision before the pay-per-view Sunday. I think that might be a thought. But you know how us old carny types are, we’re just always trying to get ourselves booked.

Jim Ross has also confirmed that 2024 will be his last year as commentator. Nonetheless, only time will tell whether Jim Ross will get to do additional work as a commentator eventually.
