Rumors can’t always be believed, so please keep that in mind throughout this article.
WWE commentator Jim Ross is finishing up his duties with the company. On March 29, the legendary figure will be a free agent once again. It now seems as though AEW could be taking advantage of this.
Rajah is reporting that Ross could be signing a multi-year contract with AEW. He would reportedly earn almost a million dollars annually as part of the contract.

It is not specifically known what role Ross would have in the company. Based on his history with professional wrestling, there are a number of positions he could take up.
The most likely position is either acting as a General Manager for the weekly show the company will produce, or possibly, and probably more likely, will work as a commentator for the weekly show.
It is important to note that while this is a rumor, Ross did mention himself that he won’t be a free agent for long. This would suggest that Ross is possibly in talks with a company such as AEW.
