Since the announcement of All Elite Wrestling last week, Jim Ross’ name has been rumored to be involved with the new promotion along with rumored name of Chris Jericho.
On the recent Jim Ross Report Podcast, JR commented on the rumor and his involvement with the company.
This is what he had to say down below:
“My name’s been bandied around because my WWE contract ends in March. So what? I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’m not really concerned about it. I’m more concerned about celebrating my 67th birthday this week. I don’t know what the future holds. It’s not something I worry about. Many aspects of that are things I cannot control. I’m not going to invest a lot of time in drama and put my skin in the game in something I can’t control or influence.”
JR also commented on AEW President Tony Khan:
“Very very smart. Very introspective. Very analytical. Very guarded and very prepared data wise, but he’s a huge fan and he has a unique instinct and perspective on wrestling."
