• “I’m 70. I have to be realistic at some point” – Jim Ross Gives An Update On His AEW Status
WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross signed a 3-year contract with AEW in April 2019 and it’s set to expire soon.
During an interview with JMart and Ramon, Good Ol’ JR had the following to say about his status with All Elite Wrestling:
“[AEW is] in a really cool spot, especially a guy like me. My contract is up soon. I’m not looking to go anywhere, but nonetheless, I’m 70. I have to be realistic at some point in my crazy a$$ life. I haven’t been.
My late wife would say, ‘Amen to that. He’s a character.’ I’m loving what I’m doing. It’s still fun for me. As long as you keep that element in the place of work, you’re alright and doing good.”
JR beat skin cancer last year.
