• WWF Legend Is Not Interested In AEW Talent Relations Job
Legendary Old School Wrestling commentator Jim Ross is famous for his play-by-play commentary roles in Bill Watt’s Mid-South Wrestling / UWF promotion (1977-1987), Jim Crockett Promotions / NWA / WCW (1987-1993) and the World Wrestling Federation / WWE (1993-2013).
However, Good Ol’ J.R. has also worked as the WWF/WWE Executive Vice President of Talent Relations for most of the Attitude Era and way into the Ruthless Aggression Era.
On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, he made it very clear that he has absolutely no interest whatsoever in resuming that position in Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what Ross said:
“Not really interested, to be honest with you. If Tony Khan came to me and said, ‘Can you help me with this talent?’ I work with a lot of talent. I don’t ever go to TV and don’t have a conversation with The Acclaimed. Wardlow is another one. I have a small list. Darby Allin.
There are a lot of these guys that I talk to at every TV. That’s one of the reasons that I go to TV on Wednesday even though I’m not broadcasting Dynamite. I get the opportunity, in a controlled environment, to some degree, to talk to these kids. Whether it be at catering or backstage or wherever it might be.
I don’t have an office or a private locker room. None of that stuff. I’m a big fan of what we’re doing and I hope all these guys Tony has around him now are going to continue to do a good job, I’m sure they will, I’m sure they’ll try.”
