Jim Ross says he doesn’t think AEW Rampage will go 2 hours

This week on Grilling JR, Jim Ross and Conrad Thompson did a watch along for the 10/21/1996 episode of Monday Night Raw that included Bret Hart’s announcement that he would be re-signing with WWE.

Ross also talked about the future of AEW Dynamite and Rampage:

“That one hour show on Friday night seems like it flies by. I think that the one-hour format still has its place. Two would be my absolute limit unless you’re doing a PPV where people are paying more, and you get more on a PPV.  I think the one-hour thing still works. I don’t see Rampage going to two hours. I don’t see any of Tony Khan’s over the air content ever going to three hours. Who the hell knows for sure, but I would be surprised if that ever happened. I think we’ve all learned good lessons about these three hour RAWs. It’s not done for artistic benefit. It’s done for the money. USA is paying a lot more money for that third hour of prime time television that’s live every week, but to me, it’s a little bit long.”

On this episode, Ross covered Jim Ross’ 1996 talks with WCW, the first Raw on TSN, Mr. Perfect’s return and exit from WWE, JR’s heel turn and more.
