During the latest episode of the Grilling JR Podcast, AEW commentator Jim Ross spoke about the ongoing Owen Hart Cup and how happy he is knowing AEW is paying tribute to the legacy of Hart. AEW announced the tournament late last year, reaching an agreement with Dr. Martha Hart to pay tribute to Owen Hart’s legacy. Ross also mentioned why he feels Hart’s legacy had been forgotten for too long.

“I’m so happy we’re doing an Owen Hart Foundation tribute and so forth in AEW,” Ross said. “It seems like Owen has been forgotten for too long, that’s just my take on it and I loved the guy. He was one of the most enjoyable guys I knew to manage in a talent relations role.”

Aside from his talk about AEW, Jim Ross also talked about an upcoming project he will be involved in with Hollywood star and former WWE superstar The Rock, and his Seven Bucks Productions company. Ross revealed that the show will be covering the wrestling territories and will start with Mid South.

“I’m going to be doing some work with The Rock’s company coming up soon,” Ross said. “We’re going to be going back and looking at the territories. I’m not sure the platform it’s going to be airing on but I was really happy to have the opportunity to participate.

“It’ll be a nice little gig, I think I’ll be joined by Jake [The Snake], Michael Hayes, and Ted DiBiase. We’re going to look at the Mid South territory first so it should be fun. Rock is a great example of being successful as hell and one of the reasons is that he’s surrounded himself with like-minded people who have great product knowledge.”
