Fresh from his newly announced 3 year deal with All Elite Wrestling referred to as the most lucrative in pro wrestling commentating history, which was announced on episode 9 of The Road to Double or Nothing,.WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, appeared on WFAN Radio in New York City earlier today and said AEW will have a weekly two-hour live TV show that premieres in October.
JR did not reveal the timeslot or the name for the AEW TV show, and he refused to elaborate on what network will carry the program, but we will keep you updated. Ross did say the AEW TV show will air on a major network that we all have access to.
AEW is overwhelming for me," Ross said. "To be 67 years old and be anointed the voice of a brand that's gonna be debuting in October on national television on a major cable network, which can't be named now. When people hear what network we're going on, they're gonna be doubly excited. It's a network we can all find."
Ross also said AEW is going for a more athletic presentation compared to what we see on TV from other promotions these days.
"I think what they're shooting for is a more athletic presentation," JR revealed. "It will hopefully be less eye rolling than the sophomore drama class trying to convince you in a 10 minute promo of anything they're saying. It's too long. Our audience can't handle that."
May 25 at Double or Nothing live from Las Vegas is where we'll hear the all new AEW broadcasting team consisting of Jim Ross, Excalibur and Conrad Thompson. Besides being behind the mic, JR was also signed as a senior advisor.
This means we are getting closer to an announcement. My guess... Double or Nothing announcement
