Just a few weeks after announcing he’d soon be parting ways with WWE, pro wrestling commentary legend Jim Ross has confirmed he’s in talks with All Elite Wrestling.
“We’re talking. We’re talking. I just haven’t signed anything yet,” JR said during an interview on Thursday with ESPN’s Outside The Lines. “My people and their people are doing their thing.”
“The only agent I grew up knowing was a State Farm agent in Oklahoma. I got a real agent now man! So, they’re working on it…” @JRsBBQ explains what he hopes is next in his career. pic.twitter.com/jCbd4emTpn

Sir Mitch Says: Not a surprise as this has been rumored for a while now. JR would be a huge get for AEW as many fans still consider him to be the voice of pro wrestling and having him as their play by play man would definitely help draw eyeballs!
