In a recent episode of his Grilling JR podcast on AdFreeShows, All Elite Wrestling commentator Jim Ross revealed that he recently signed a contract extension with the company.
Speaking about the news, Ross had the following to say, “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 that I’m in. I’m really pleased that at 70, I still have a future, at 70, I still love what I do and anybody that says you’re too old, f*** yourself. I want to get to 2024, that’s 50 years in the wrestling business and not a lot of guys can stay they were basically in the same job in a fickle, crazy-a**, unpredictable business like pro wrestling for 50 years. The good lord is looking down and cutting me a break and if I get to 50, I’ll be the happiest guy in Norman, Oklahoma.”
