AEW announcer Jim Ross has revealed that AEW is planning to head back on the road “pretty aggressively” starting in July.

Speaking on the latest episode of his podcast ,Grilling JR, which is available via Ad Free Shows, Ross said that he can’t wait to get back in front of a live crowd.

“[AEW is] making some changes also. We’re adding more content here sooner than later with another show. We’re getting our schedule together. Looks like we’re going back on the road pretty aggressively, beginning in July. getting back in front of a live audience is a blessing. I can’t wait. I will help everybody’s work. You can’t help but feed off of the adrenaline of the people and the audience surrounding you. Should be cool.”

AEW recently held their first ever non-televised house show, ‘The house Always Wins’ at Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida. The show was headlined by Darby Allin defending his TNT Championship.

Meanwhile AEW have also announced that the first ever Blood and Guts Match is due to take place on the May 5th edition of Dynamite. The match had been due to debut in 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The clash will see MJF, Wardlow, Shawn Spears, Cash Wheeler and Dash Harwood take on Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz in one giant covered cage, suspected to be across two rings – much like the traditional WarGames format.

Away from AEW, WWE recently saw fans return at WrestleMania 37. The event which was held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida saw a total of 51,350 fans in attendance across two nights.

The statement from Jim Ross comes after it was reported that WWE are hoping to have fans in attendance for SummerSlam in August.
