WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has been rumored of being involved with All Elite Wrestling ever since news of the hot promotion broke the internet.

It was reported in October that JR was going to start a new promotion alongside WWE icon Chris Jericho and pro wrestling super-agent Barry Bloom. With Ross’ current contract set to expire in March, it is widely believed that he would be “heavily involved” with AEW.

On the latest edition of The Ross Report, the legendary play-by-play announcer addressed rumors of his association with Tony Khan‘s upcoming promotion.

“My name’s been bandied around because my WWE contract ends in March. So what? I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’m not really concerned about it. I’m more concerned about celebrating my 67th birthday this week. I don’t know what the future holds. It’s not something I worry about. Many aspects of that are things I cannot control. I’m not going to invest a lot of time in drama and put my skin in the game in something I can’t control or influence.”

“I met him before this idea was ever hatched. He came to the weekend where NJPW had the double-header in Long Beach. We met, hung out, had a few beers and talked wrestling. That’s my relationship with Tony. I saw him at All In, passed him in the hallway.”

At this point, independent circuit’s Britt Baker is AEW’s only signing outside the core Elite group.

The upcoming promotion is yet to officially announce JR’s involvement. Jericho, who has also teased his association with Khan’s AEW, is yet to make an official move as well.

Tony will serve as the President of All Elite Wrestling with Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) stepping up as Executive Vice Presidents.
