If you ask Jim Ross, IMPACT has benefitted more from their ongoing working relationship with AEW.
During a recent interview with DAZN, the AEW commentator and WWE Hall of Fame legend explained why he feels IMPACT Wrestling has benefitted from the cross-promotional working arrangement with All Elite Wrestling.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where the legendary pro wrestling announcer touches on this particular topic.
“I think as it relates to Impact, that’s done through the cooperative efforts of nature of Tony Khan. Don Callis is a part of the management team at Impact and the on-camera manager of Kenny Omega. I think I’m going to sound bad saying this, I’m sure. I think this relationship has helped Impact more than it’s helped AEW. But I don’t know that we’re measuring. I don’t know that we’re judging, quite frankly. If it helps the wrestling business, and it makes it more fan-friendly, then we all win. Tony Khan’s philosophy is to do business with everybody that we want that can help our brand. I think that’s kind of the concept, and I don’t think it’s going to end with Impact.”
