On the latest episode of Grilling JR, Ross was asked if signing a one-year deal meant this would be his last year on commentary.

"I think so. It's realistic to think that. I'm 72 years old, I feel good, I get healthier every day, which is great, but I have to think realistically this could be my last year and more than likely will. It's to be determined. That's between me, my health, and Tony Khan. Right now it's a good plan because I'm essentially working, as I understand, pay-per-views only. That's where you'll find me, as the plan goes, as we speak. As we know, in pro wrestling, things change and could be different, but I don't think so with this occasion. I think it's what I'll be doing, and that's fine with me. I get to go to big shows, call big matches on big shows. Tony Khan has a good feel for what he'd like me to do, and my skill set. Right now, my situation is, I'm going to be married to the pay-per-views. That's good. Maybe it'll help the buy rates a bit. Storytelling will be a little sounder and different," said Ross.

Ross reiterated that he was pleasantly surprised that he was calling the co-main event at AEW Revolution on top of the main event, but was happy to do so.
