Despite a recent report from an unreputable website claiming that Jim Ross would be stepping down as a full-time color commentator in order to work in other areas throughout AEW and would only be doing commentary on a part-time or “as needed”, those claims seem to have been shot down by both Ross and AEW President Tony Khan.
Jim Ross replied to a tweet asking if these supposed reports were true. Ross replied by stating:
It’s news to me… https://t.co/ZlzbuDVWCo

Along with Ross’ reply, Tony Khan has confirmed that such a move is not in his plans and that he has never said he’s looking to remove Ross from the position.
