Jim Ross has one of the most recognisable voices in professional wrestling. Over his nearly five-decade-spanning career, he has been in prominent commentary positions for top promotions such as WWE, WCW, NJPW and AEW.
The latter promotion, All Elite Wrestling, has used Jim Ross exclusively for the last four years. With the debut of their new show AEW Collision on the horizon, however, it is yet to be revealed if he will be lending his recognisable voice to the programme.
Jim Ross Wants To Be Part Of AEW Collision
On the latest episode of his podcast, Grilling JR, Jim Ross commented on the upcoming debut of AEW Collision, revealing that the plans for the show are being kept quiet.
“I don’t know a lot about the show. I don’t know who’s the broadcast team is. It’s all been kind of kept close to the vest, shall we say.”
Saturday night’s a challenging night for television. It just is. Doesn’t mean people don’t watch TV on Saturday, they do, and I believe that they will if there’s a reason. I don’t know what the roster’s gonna look like.”
“We’ll see what happens. But I’m excited to find out who’s gonna be… I hope to broadcast that show, even though it’ll kill my football on Saturday nights. So we’ll figure that out. That’s not a big deal. That’s the great thing about streaming and all those things. I can watch my ball game, I just may not be able to watch it live.”
Jim Ross was behind the commentary desk for the premieres of AEW’s other network shows, Dynamite and Rampage, but it remains to be seen whether he will get his hat-trick for Collision.
After announcing Collision last week, Tony Khan has noted that he will reveal the location of the show’s first episode tonight on Dynamite.
