Legendary pro wrestling lead announcer Jim Ross signed a deal with All Elite Wrestling back in April. This deal is for three years where he will work as an announcer and a Senior Advisor.
At the time, AEW touted that the contract is “the most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history.”
“Somebody said to me the other day, they said, ‘JR, I read you signed a three-year contract with AEW and the Khan family.’ I sure did. ‘Well what are you gonna do when that’s up?’ I said, ‘Well, thanks for assuming I’ll be alive,’ number one. I like that theory.”
He continued, “I said, ‘Here’s what I’d probably like to do: How about renew it? And get another one.’ Hey look, if our man Vin Scully can do it until his 80s — that scares some young fans right there. ‘Oh my God, that old bastard is thinking about doing this until his 80s.’ Well let’s not get carried away kids. Lighten up for instance. It’s not that bad.”
