Jim Ross is All Elite.
On the most recent edition of 'Road To Double Or Nothing', it was made official that WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross will be a part of All Elite Wrestling and is taking on the senior advisor role for the next three years along with doing commentary for the company and Ross' deal has been described as the "most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history."
Jim Ross' contract with WWE expired on March 29th and following that date, he did not shy away from questions that had to do with the possibility of him joining AEW and his affiliation with the company was confirmed within a matter of weeks of him being a free agent. J.R. recently sat down with WFAN Sports Radio and talked about a plethora of topics and during the beginning portions of the interview, Ross was asked about All Elite Wrestling and mentioned that the company will debut on television on a major network this coming October and added that the network will not be hard to find.
“Yeah, sure is." Ross said about All Elite Wrestling. "It’s overwhelming for me to be 67-years old and be anointed the voice of a brand that’s gonna be debuting in October on national television on a major cable network which can’t be named now but I can tell you it’s very exciting, and when people hear what network we’re going on, I think they’re gonna be double-excited because it’s a network that we can all find. It’s the old network scheme: you can’t sell goods out of an empty wagon.”
All Elite Wrestling is gearing up for their first show under the company banner which is 'Double Or Nothing' on May 25th. To stay up to date with the match card for the event, head over to Fightful's "events" page.
