I can’t say I saw that one coming. There are all kinds of people in the wrestling industry but most of them have one thing in common: they all need to find something to do once they get out of the wrestling industry. Some of them manage to do something while they are still involved with wrestling, and that seems to be the case again. This time though, it is quite the odd combination.

During the latest edition of his Grilling JR podcast, AEW broadcaster Jim Ross revealed that he is opening a cannabis farm in Oklahoma. Ross is going into business with his daughter, son-in-law and another man, with Ross having purchased the land for the farm. The other three will be handling the day to day operations of the farm, which will be called “Black Hat Farms”.

That’s another thing to add to his list. Check out some of Ross’ greatest moments:

Opinion: Sure why not. This is one of those things that you probably did not see coming and it is rather the sight to see. Ross is someone who has done more than a few different things over the course of his life and it is interesting to see that he is trying something new. Maybe this is something that his kids want to do more than him, but it is certainly not something I would have bet on.

What do you think of Ross? How could he be best used in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
