WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently signed a three-year deal with AEW and will make his commentary debut at AEW Double or Nothing on May 25th. He recently spoke on WFAN Radio in New York City earlier today and said AEW will have a weekly two-hour live TV show that will be airing in October.
Ross didn’t reveal the timeslot or the name of the TV show. He did not provide details regarding the network where the show will air. However, Jim Ross did say that the AEW TV show will air on a major network that is accessible everywhere.
“[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.”
Jim also revealed that AEW will go for a more athletic presentation instead of what we see on TV from other wrestling 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.”
We will provide updates regarding the AEW TV when we get to know more.
