His tenure with All Elite Wrestling has been no exception, providing fans with memorable commentary moments. However, the winds of change are blowing as Ross’ contract with AEW is on the brink of expiration.

A Brief Hiatus

Earlier this summer, Ross took a brief hiatus from his role at the AEW Collision booth. This absence was due to a fall he suffered, which unfortunately led to a concussion.

Fans were undoubtedly concerned about his well-being, but the legendary announcer made a triumphant return to the Collision booth just last Saturday.

The Contract Countdown

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the timeframe for the expiration of Ross’ current deal with All Elite Wrestling is clear: it’s set to conclude in September.

With the contract’s end looming, fans and industry insiders alike are speculating on what the future holds for Ross and AEW.

Upcoming Appearances

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his contract, Ross remains active in the AEW scene. He is slated to appear on the next episode of Collision.

Additionally, fans can look forward to a sit-down interview he will conduct with Kenny Omega on the upcoming edition of AEW Dynamite.

These appearances indicate that, contract or not, Ross’ passion for the sport and dedication to AEW remains unwavering.

The Legacy of Jim Ross

Jim Ross’ contribution to the world of professional wrestling extends beyond just All Elite. He has been an integral part of the industry, serving as a commentator, referee, and even a company executive at WWE.

His distinctive voice and unmatched enthusiasm have made him a beloved figure among wrestling aficionados. Whether he continues with AEW or takes a new path, his legacy in the wrestling world is undeniable.
