Jim Ross on AEW-WWE Crossover: Hard to See It

One big thing: WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross weighs in on potential AEW-WWE collaboration

As WWE NXT continues its successful crossover with TNA, Jim Ross shared his thoughts on the possibility of AEW partnering with WWE.

Key points:

• Ross believes a crossover between AEW and WWE would be “very difficult to achieve”
• He’s hopeful he’ll be proven wrong, as it would benefit the wrestling business
• Ross enjoys the current climate of the wrestling industry, with multiple promotions offering opportunities

What they’re saying:

“It’s hard to see it, but you know nothing’s impossible apparently, but it’s something I can’t fathom right now,” Ross said on his “Grilling JR” podcast.

Why it matters:

Crossovers between major wrestling promotions can generate excitement and new storylines, potentially attracting more viewers and revitalizing the industry.

The big picture:

AEW has already participated in crossovers with NJPW, opening the “Forbidden Door
WWE NXT is currently featuring TNA stars in appearances and matches
• AEW stars like Chris Jericho and World Champion Swerve Strickland have expressed interest in working with WWE

Between the lines:

Ross suggests that while WWE might be open to short-term collaborations, long-term partnerships are less likely.

“I think WWE will take in borders and renters for their space, but to keep them permanently might be a stretch,” he explained.

The bottom line:

While a full-scale AEW-WWE crossover seems unlikely in the near future, the wrestling landscape continues to evolve, offering new opportunities for talent and exciting possibilities for fans.
