WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross made headlines last week during an appearance on ESPN’s Outside the Lines where he confirmed that he was in talks with AEW (All Elite Wrestling). In this interview, he was quoted by stating, “We’re talking. We’re talking. I just haven’t signed anything yet. My people and their people are doing their thing.”
Moving along to the latest episode of The Ross Report, JR gave an update where he noted that he thinks they should ink a deal and announce it in the coming days.
“We are talking to AEW. I’ve mentioned that before. They are an exciting young company. When we get something finalized, which should be, I’m thinking, in the next few days at most, we’ll let everybody know.”
“Life is good, man. When one door closes, another door opens, if you let it. And that’s my choice. Another door is opening, and if all goes well, knock on wood, everything’s cool. It’ going to be a good year.”
