JR REVEALS MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF AEW

Recent AEW signee Jim Ross appeared on WFAN Radio in New York earlier today. During the interview, he revealed a few details that were previously unknown.

Most importantly, JR revealed that AEW had signed a TV deal. The veteran announcer didn’t reveal which network would be airing the show, or what time slot or even day. However, he narrowed the option, saying that the show would be televised nationally. Speaking during the interview, Ross said:

“[AEW] is overwhelming for me, 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 spoke about the style of presentation, saying that the show would be more athletic and less soap opera:

“I think what they’re shooting for is a more athletic presentation, 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.”
