Jim Ross worked for WWE, as a commentator, and for Fox Sports, where he writes commentary on professional wrestling for FoxSports.com. He was also the lead announcer for New Japan Pro-Wrestling on AXS TV and occasionally does play-by-play for boxing and mixed martial arts.
As of February 2014 Ross began hosting his own weekly podcast, The Jim Ross Report. Ross was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2007. He is known affectionately as "Good ol´ JR", was widely regarded as the voice of the WWE particularly during The Attitude Era, and has been labelled as one of the greatest wrestling commentators of all time.
On the latest Grilling JR, Ross explained why Wednesday is the best day of the week for AEW to air on: “Hands down. Hands down. Again, going back to my thought earlier about, ‘How can you find us? Are we where we’re supposed to be? Do you have to look for our show?’ All of those things.
I like the consistency a lot [as opposed to airing on a day they might have to be pre-empted or moved to another network]. So Wednesday would be my choice”. He also added: “That means that my life will change. I’ll be leaving my home here in Norman every Tuesday, Tuesday morning.
And get to the site for our event on Tuesday. Have a production meeting Tuesday night, and then do the show live on Wednesday and come home. But that’s gonna be every week. There’s no off-season, as we all know. We’ve talked about that ad neaseum. So I like the Wednesday”.
