• WWE Legend Denies Being Involved With All Elite Wrestling
As we noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross’ name came up once again when multiple reports suggested that JR is one of the Wrestling Legends (with Goldberg & Chris Jericho being the other Legends) that will be involved with All Elite Wrestling.
Good Ol’ JR denied these reports once again and said the following on a recent edition of Jim Ross Report podcast:
“My name’s been bandied around because my WWE contract ends in March. So what? I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’m not really concerned about it. I’m more concerned about celebrating my 67th birthday this week.
I don’t know what the future holds. It’s not something I worry about. Many aspects of that are things I cannot control. I’m not going to invest a lot of time in drama and put my skin in the game in something I can’t control or influence.”
