Jim Ross Reveals Length Of His Contract Extension With AEW

AEW commentator and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross, who signed with the company in April of 2019 and who has been in the pro wrestling business for close to 5 decades, took to an episode of his the “Grilling JR” podcast, where he revealed that he recently signed a contract extension with AEW to stay with the company for another year and a half, which is till mid-2024 as well as how he is really grateful and appreciative of what AEW President and CEO Tony Khan has done for him.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“I signed an extension with AEW not too long ago.” “I appreciate Tony Khan’s confidence and his willingness to keep me on the team and contribute. We’re not going to go for a long time, but I think I signed for about a year and a half, something like that to stay in the position I’m in. I’m really pleased at 70 I still have a future and at 70 I’m still loving what I do.”

Jim Ross also talked about his reaction to anyone who says he should just stay home because he is too old as he wants to get to 2024 and achieve what only a few people in the wrestling business have done and that is to be in the pro wrestling business for 50 years.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“Anybody who says you’re too old, f*ck yourself, how’s that?” “Yup, go ahead, pull it out and f*ck yourself. You’re telling me I should stay home and die? You’re dictating that I don’t deserve to continue this career? I want to get to 2024. I really do, that’s 50 years in the wrestling business and not a lot of guys can say they were in the basic same job in a fickle crazy-ass unpredictable business like pro wrestling for 50 years. Hopefully, the good lord’s looking down and cut me a break. If we get to 50, I’ll be the happiest guy in Norman Oklahoma.”
