Jim Ross on working with a new broadcast team at AEW Double Or Nothing, says WWE isn’t looking for traditional play-by-play

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Jim Ross spoke with the New York Post about calling the AEW Double Or Nothing event and working with new broadcast team partners Excalibur and Alex Marvez. “We’re going to be fine, I think,” Ross said. “It may be rocky to get rolling, but shoot, by the time that show’s over and we call, which I assume will be [Chris] Jericho and [Kenny] Omega, if we ain’t rocking and rolling, that’s our fault.”

Ross also noted that WWE isn’t taking a traditional approach to calling matches. ““They’re not looking for play-by-play people, they’re looking for people who can narrate and give backstory,” he said. “And it’s very annoying for a wrestling fan. And maybe, someday, everybody will get there. If you’re talking about something totally different than what I’m seeing there is invariably a disconnect.” Read the full interview at NYPost.com.

Powell’s POV: Ross also said he feels like he has something to prove going into Double Or Nothing. He also spoke about AEW on TNT in the fall, and also spoke about the Owen Hart podcast that he and Conrad Thompson recorded for their show this week.
