Business is about to pick up.
Earlier in the month, Jim Ross announced that he would not be re-signing with WWE. Per JR, his current deal with WWE expires on Mar. 29.
Appearing today (Mar. 21) on Outside The Lines, Ross was asked directly if he is going to All Elite Wrestling next.
“The only agent I grew up knowing was a State Farm agent in Oklahoma. I got a real agent now man! So, they’re working on it…” @JRsBBQ explains what he hopes is next in his career. pic.twitter.com/jCbd4emTpn

“I don’t know. We’re talking. We’re talking. I just haven’t signed anything yet. My people and their people are doing their thing. The only agent I grew up knowing was a State Farm agent in Oklahoma. I got a real agent now man! So, they’re working on it…”
It’s not that long ago, last October, when Ross was rumored to be linked to an upstart promotion that would eventually become AEW.
A Hall of Famer and pro wrestling lifer, should AEW go with JR as the voice of their promotion?
