Jim Ross Signs New AEW Deal

The veteran announcer has put pen-to-paper on a new AEW deal

AEW commentator Jim Ross has announced that he has signed a new deal with AEW.

Ross revealed the news on the latest episode of the Grilling JR podcast, saying:

"I don't think I've made this announcement yet; I signed an extension with AEW not too long ago. I appreciate Tony Khan's confidence and his willingness to keep me on the team and contribute. We're not going a long time, but I signed about a year and a half, something like that, to stay in the position I'm in. I'm really pleased that, at 70, I still have a future. At 70, I still love what I do. Anybody that says 'you're too old,' f*** yourself," Ross said.

Ross continued by saying, "I want to get to 2024. That's 50 years in the wrestling business. Not a long of guys can say they were basically in the same job in a fickle. crazy ass, unpredictable business like pro wrestling for 50 years. The good Lord is looking down and cutting me a break, if I get to 50, I'll be the happiest guy in Norman, Oklahoma."

During his career, Ross has worked for the likes of the the NWA, Jim Crockett Promotions/WCW, WWE, NJPW, and AEW.
