He might stick around. AEW has not been around that long but we are now reaching an interesting time in the company’s history. Some of the company’s original contracts are starting to expire and that means some of the people involved might be seeing what else is out there. There will certainly be some names who want to stick around though, and now we know where one of the bigger AEW names stand.
AEW broadcaster Jim Ross recently appeared on the J-Mart and Ramon podcast where he discussed his contract status with the company. Ross revealed that his current contract expires in April, when it will be up for renewal. While Ross does want to stay with the company, he also said that at 70 years old, he has to start being realistic. Ross said that he still loves what he is doing and still has fun. There is nothing to suggest that AEW will not renew Ross’ contract.
Opinion: This is about as realistic of a take as Ross could have. Yes he is a legend and yes he is still one of the biggest names in AEW, but AEW might need to start looking for a more long term solution. Ross is probably going to be able to stay in AEW for as long as he wants to, but it should be interesting to see what he does in the future. There is nothing wrong with having him around, though it is not going to last for the long term.
What do you think of Ross? How should he be used in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
