Jim Ross Discusses Why he Didn’t Want EVP Role in AEW


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.”
