Jim Ross Signs AEW Contract Extension

Jim Ross Signs AEW Contract Extension AEW

AEW Announcer Jim Ross has announced that he has now signed a contract extension with the company.

In February, the wrestling veteran stated that his contract was up soon, noting that he wasn’t planning on leaving.

On Grilling JR, Jim Ross has now revealed that he recently put pen to paper, and will be with AEW for at least a year and a half.

Discussing his deal, Ross said:

“I don’t think we’ve made this announcement, but I signed an extension with AEW not too long ago. I appreciate Tony Khan’s confidence and his willingness to keep me on the team and contribute. We’re not going a long time, but I think I signed for about a year and a half or something like that to stay in the position I’m in. I’m just really pleased that at 70, I still have a future, and at 70, I’m still loving what I do.”

Ross had previously noted that he’d prefer to sign one-year contracts with AEW from now until he decides to step away from the commentary desk.

The veteran commentator is expected to work AEW Double or Nothing on May 29. Check out the announced card for the pay-per-view right here.
