After being announced as a member of AEW’s broadcast team, Jim Ross has spoken about the company and its work towards getting a TV deal.
The WWE Hall Of Famer appeared on the WFAN Radio in New York City as he talked about joining AEW, giving a particular piece of big news regarding the network that AEW will end up on.
“[AEW] is overwhelming for me,” Ross said. “To be 67 years old and be anointed the voice of a brand that’s gonna be debuting in October on national television on a major cable network, which can’t be named now. When people hear what network we’re going on, they’re gonna be doubly excited. It’s a network we can all find.”
“I think what they’re shooting for is a more athletic presentation,” JR revealed. “It will hopefully be less eye rolling than the sophomore drama class trying to convince you in a 10 minute promo of anything they’re saying. It’s too long. Our audience can’t handle that.”
