Jim Ross Planning To Finish Career In AEW
Jim Ross is happy seeing out his full-time career in AEW
Legendary wrestling announcer Jim Ross plans on finishing his full-time career in AEW.
Speaking during a special Q&A edition of his Grilling JR podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer was asked whether he would consider returning to WWE in the future.
"Those rhetorical questions are hard to address. I'm a businessman and I'm very happy to be in the business with the company that I'm doing it with. What would happen if I didn't have that job and somebody else wanted me to work for them, work with them, or what have you? I take a case-by-case scenario, but that's not something I'm looking at doing.
"I told Tony Khan this, that I'd like to finish my career, my full-time career, at AEW. Maybe it's coming in and doing a pay-per-view. Maybe it's coming in at a special like Battle the Belts, or the pay-per-views. Like I said, it's something that would be interesting to do. I don't know. It's hard to sort of position yourself there because the last thing I want to do is get another full-time job. I don't want to be on the road every week at that stage of my life. I want to fulfill this contract as great as I can and earn my keep, and stay where I'm at until it's time to move on.
"We have to be honest about it, realistically. At some point in time, you got to reevaluate. You just have to, and at my age, it's especially important. I don't know about another job. Would I want to do another full-time job at AEW or WWE or anywhere else? Probably not. Again, if I was 40, or 50, or 60, I would probably reconsider that answer. But I'm not. We have to be realistic about sh*t".
Ross signed an extension with AEW earlier this year.
