Jim Ross Says Wrestling Is His Life-Saver & He Is Living His Best Life In AEW

Jim Ross says he's living his best life in AEW.

Jim Ross, prior to signing with All Elite Wrestling, grew tired of sitting on the bench. WWE had only used him in sporadic roles of the commentator for years and he suffered the tragic loss of his wife, Jan.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Jim Ross opens up about just how grateful he is for the opportunity to be able to call wrestling every Wednesday on the TNT Network and how he continues to follow the advice that he gave many rookies over the years and “maximize his minutes” in everyday life.

“I will always be indebted to Tony Khan for bringing me aboard AEW. I feel wanted in AEW. That’s a great feeling,” said a candid JR. “I am living my best life. I would love to be living my best life with Jan, but that’s not the hand I’ve been dealt. We’ve got a great thing going and I’m having a lot of fun. I still miss Jan and cherish her memory daily, but I think she would be happy knowing I’m back in the game I love.”

He concluded, “My favorite time is putting on the headset and calling wrestling. Wrestling is my life-saver. If you’re listening to our show, I’m not going to let you down.”
