Jim Ross: I Started My Career Doing An Hour Show, It Looks Like That's How I'll End It

Jim Ross comments on being part of AEW Rampage.

Ross' role on AEW commentary has changed over the years as he was initially used for pay-per-views and AEW Dynamite alongside Tony Schiavone and Excalibur. In recent time, Ross was inserted into the broadcast booth for the second hour of Dynamite and called AEW Rampage.

Now, he's full-time on AEW Rampage and has been moved off AEW Dynamite.

Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross discussed the move.

"We're trying real hard to try and make that one hour show, improve it and make it better. I like working with Excalibur and Schiavone. I think that's our best group. At least for me, because I'm working. I miss being on Dynamite, but I'm glad Tony put me on Rampage because I want to help build that brand, that was the concept. Put JR on Friday nights, maybe viewers will tune in out of old time sake or whatever the reason may be. It's an hour show, that's how I started my career, looks like that's how I'm going to end it, doing hour shows, if that's the case, that's fine with me," he said.

Taz, Schiavone, and Excalibur is the trio used for AEW Dynamite. In May, Ross revealed he signed a new 18-month contract with AEW.
