Jim Ross To Call New Japan Pro Wrestling Matches On AXS TV

Posted By: Ben Kerin on Jan 19, 2016

FOX Sports reports, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has signed to provide commentary for New Japan Pro Wrestling matches for AXS TV.

Ross is reportedly doing the voice-over work from Los Angeles and will work alongside Josh Barnett beginning March 4th at 9pm EST.

Ross had the following to say:

"This opportunity to work with AXS TV is attractive on many fronts. The travel won't be weekly but approximately 8-10 trips to Los Angeles in a year's time. While there, in a two-day, voice-over session, we will hammer out up to six shows. I'm happy OKC now has non-stop flights to LAX."

"I'm a big fan of the New Japan product as they have been one if the most highly regarded brands within the genre for decades. New Japan has a unique opportunity with AXS TV to grow their brand in North America. The more fans sample the athleticism, physicality, no-nonsense presentation of NJPW the more they're going to like it. For me, the New Japan Pro Wrestling business philosophy reminds me of my earlier years in wrestling. I've had numerous other offers, some serious and others just flirting to return to TV Wrestling broadcasting but none have had the appeal that AXS TV offered me. We think my style will fit the NJPW in-ring presentation well. We'll know that conclusively in early March. Plus, AXS TV and I discussed other potential projects outside NJPW."
