Jim Ross has revealed that UFC President Dana White will attend an AEW show when the company visits Las Vegas.
Ross and AEW President Tony Khan were spotted sitting on the front row for last weekend’s UFC 273 event.
Speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Ross confirmed that White invited them to the event.
Revealing that he’ll be in the building for an upcoming AEW show, Ross said:
“Dana White invited Tony Khan and I to attend. I left my house at 10 o’clock here on the beach to go to the event because it didn’t start on pay per view till 10 o’clock ET. I don’t think the main event went into the ring until midnight or close to it. It was a long night in that respect, but Dana’s always an amazing host, he had us front row seats and put us right behind him.
“I didn’t watch the show back but according to my timelines, we were on TV a lot and that was nice to put AEW over to some degree. He and Tony are buddies and I’ve known Dana for a long time myself, probably not as well as Tony does. He remembers my name and was glad I came, so he’s just a great host and a good dude.
“When we’re in Vegas coming up in several weeks, he’s going to come to one of our events, so Dana’s a good dude. We have a lot in common, we’re trying to sell tickets to a live event and then televise it. There’s a lot of common ground there.”
AEW has several dates in Las Vegas in May, with the Double or Nothing pay-per-view slated for May 29 in the T-Mobile Arena.
Ross has also shared his honest thoughts on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s return to the ring at WrestleMania 38, which you can read more about right here.
