In a recent episode of his Grilling JR podcast, All Elite Wrestling commentator Jim Ross discussed several topics, including his contract with AEW expiring on February 14th as well as why he wants to call Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution this March.
“It seems to be that it just makes sense that the original two guys that called the very first Sting/Flair match, if they were available and could still carry their share of their water, would be a good opportunity.
I mentioned it to Tony Khan, he loved the idea, my problem is not that, my problem is my contract is up February 14th, which I’ve mentioned ad nauseam and that event is in March, so we’ve got to take care of some business, and i’m sure that we will.
I feel good about where I’m headed with Tony and AEW, I’d love to have something to announce before the 14th, if possible. We’re still at the same place right, I’ve got to get there contractually to be able to pull that off.
I’m not using it as a leverage ploy, it just seemed like it makes sense, I think the best booking is booking this logically and having JR and Schiavone call the match to me seems logical, so we’ll see how it all works out. It’s going to work out the way it’s supposed to be, and we’ll see how it goes from there, but I’m happy with the way things are moving along.”
