WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross sat down on The Steve Austin Show where he discussed his role with All Elite Wrestling. The legendary announcer is a senior adviser. Here is what he had to say:
“My official title is Senior Adviser,” Ross stated. “My reason for being a senior adviser and not an EVP is The Young Bucks are EVP’s, Cody is an EVP, Kenny Omega is an EVP, [they] sure as hell don’t need my sad fat ass being one of them. I have already been an EVP, I’m good. I told Tony Khan just make me the senior adviser, and he liked that title. Later, he asked me why I wanted that title and I said, ‘It’s really simple, this is the wrestling business, the senior adviser gets to take credit for all the good stuff and disavow the stuff that sucks.”
