Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/09/2019 at 01:57 PM

In an interview with The Hannibal TV, Jim Ross addressed AEW...

Reason for signing with AEW: "Iím glad to be back working. Last year I was booked twice. Had a great job, made good money, and went on the road twice. That didnít work for me. Iím a workhorse. I just want to get back in the game. When my contract ended at WWE it seemed logical to check the waters and the guys at AEW were very motivated to hire me. It was an easy negotiation."

His role: "Thatís the idea for me to do play-by-play. Iím also Senior Advisor, and I donít know what that really means, but Iíll help these younger cats trying to learn their way as an administrator, booker, or talent relations. With my experience over the years, I can help these younger guys."

AEW being for everyone: "I didnít know they had a transgender wrestler until I was introduced. I donít care, I donít have a problem with it. You should be able to express your liberties and how you think. I see theyíre open-minded and that means more opportunity."
