Jim Ross has commented on the report that he’ll soon be transitioning out of his full-time AEW announcer role.
Earlier today (August 28), Ringside News reported that Jim Ross will still commentate for major matches and events, but will soon mainly be used by AEW in “other ways”. Cassidy Haynes of Bodyslam.net stated that they were able to privately confirm this report with his sources.
Ross has taken to Twitter to reveal that he was unaware of the reported plans. Replying to a fan asking whether the reports were true, Ross tweeted:
“It’s news to me…”
Earlier this year, Ross confirmed that he signed a three-year deal with AEW when he joined the company in 2019. The WWE Hall of Famer admitted that after his current deal expires, he would prefer to sign on with the promotion for one year at a time.
Ross also recently praised the current SmackDown commentary team, calling Pat McAfee a “breath of fresh air“.
