After announcing he is departing WWE, Jim Ross has revealed that there have been talks between himself and AEW about potentially working together.
It was heavily rumored prior to JR announcing he was leaving WWE at the end of his contract that he would be working with AEW, and the commentator spoke about the talks that have happened between the two parties:
“There [are]a lot of big things on the horizon,” Ross said. “I’ll leave you with that. There [are]so many rumors out there, ‘this is going to happen,’ ‘that is going to happen.’ All I can tell you is this: I’m not keeping any secret. My contract with WWE is up at the end of March. What happens after that is not up to me entirely. It takes two to tango on any front you go to. So, all I know is I’m not worried about any of it. I’m not worried about how to get my groceries in 2019. All is good. Life is good. It’s going to be an amazing year. Huge things on the horizon. I’ve got a feeling. I really believe that for all of us, and no better time in our lifetime to be a wrestling fan.”
