"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,' fuck yourself," he 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."

Ross signed a three-year deal in April 2019 to serve as an announcer and senior advisor. Ross has been one of the voices on AEW Dynamite and AEW pay-per-views, sharing the booth alongside Tony Schiavone and Excalibur.

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
