Jim Ross has revealed whether he would be interested in being head of talent relations for AEW.
WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross spent over seven years as WWE Head of Talent Relations during which time a plethora of stars came through the ranks. These include the likes of The Rock, John Cena, Edge & Christian, Randy Orton and more.
Given the recent backstage unrest in AEW, many have speculated that Ross taking on the AEW talent relations role might be the perfect solution.
On a recent episode of his Grilling JR Podcast, Jim Ross addressed if he wanted to assume the position:
“I’m not really interested to be honest with you. If Tony Khan came to me and said, ‘Can you help me with this talent?’ I work with a lot of talents. You mentioned The Acclaimed earlier. I don’t ever go to TV and don’t have a conversation with The Acclaimed. Wardlow, another one. I have a small list. Darby Allin. There’s a lot of these guys that I talk to at every TV, and that’s one of the reasons that I go to TVs on Wednesday even though I’m not broadcasting Dynamite.
I get the opportunity in a controlled environment to some degree to talk to these kids whether it be at catering or backstage or wherever it may be. I don’t have an office there. I don’t have a private locker room there. None of that stuff.”
The broadcaster also discussed potentially returning to WWE should the opportunity ever present itself.
