Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross said that he would be at AEW Dynasty, and he was excited about whatever his role would be. Ross compared himself to a bullpen pitcher and noted that it was hard to believe that he had not been working on-air since AEW Revolution.

“I’m awfully excited about the big AEW pay-per-view this Sunday [in] St. Louis. I’ll be flying out there on Saturday. Excited about whatever my role will be. I’ll be happy with it. I feel like [Mariano] Rivera. I feel like I’m always in the bullpen. But I’ll come in, I’ll shut your ass down [in] the bottom of the ninth or get some outs, whatever. Nonetheless, I’m not sure what I’m gonna do. It doesn’t matter, it’s a wrestling match. So I always say that if you put the son of a bitch on the monitor, I can call it. I can describe what we’re seeing collectively. So it’s a pretty cool deal. I’m looking forward to going out there and participating with the team. It’s hard to believe I haven’t been working since Greensboro on-air, so fun deal. It’ll be good, a good show," Ross said.

Ross went on to note that he would study his notes, and he would be informed about which matches he was set to call earlier in the day on Sunday.

Ross previously said that it was realistic to say that 2024 would be his last year as an announcer. Check out his comments here.
