On the latest "Grilling JR" podcast on AdFreeShows.com, Jim Ross covered WCW's The Great American Bash 1992 pay-per-view that featured Sting defending the World Title against Big Van Vader.

Ross discussed the All-Atlantic Title and AEW going to the UK:

"I didn't understand that (creating the All-Atlantic Title), but it doesn't matter what I understand. I'm not against it, but did we need it? I don't know that we needed it, but I also don't know how big of an asset it's going to be internationally for us."

Ross continued, "I know that we're going to go to places, like PAC is defending that title now in the UK I get it all the time. When are you guys coming to England? When are you going to do a pay-per-view? When are you going to do this? Well, when we come to England, you can bet your ass it’s going to be big. Tony's got great business contacts there."

Ross said that the plan is for AEW to go to the UK next year, echoing what Tony Khan has said in recent weeks. Ross said, "But the key thing is AEW is definitely coming to the UK and it will be in the next calendar year. I know that for a fact. I don't know the dates, but we're all excited about that because we get great television ratings in the UK. So why not play off that?”
