Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross was discussing his health, and he noted that AEW's schedule was appealing to him. Likewise, he stated that he likes to see the company's young talent develop, and he wants to help them more. Ross then expressed that he has been trying to work with AEW's young talent more in recent weeks, and he'll continue to do so because he's eager to coach them.

“I’m doing fine. Our travel’s manageable, it really is. I’ve had to a lot more strenuous travel than this in my career. That’s one of the things that makes AEW, for me, so attractive is the schedule, and seeing these young guys develop. I wish I had the opportunity to help them develop more. I’ve been trying to do that in the last several weeks, just on my own, talking to talents. I’ll continue to do so because I enjoy it. It’s coaching, and I think that’s what I was put on earth to do, is to help coach these kids up a bit and give them hope and keep them positive. So we’ll see how that all works out," Ross said.
