As previously noted, All Elite Wrestling color commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross allegedly turned down an offer to appear at the upcoming “biggest reunion in Monday Night Raw” history. AEW officials reportedly gave him permission to appear and left the decision up to him, and J.R. opted to turn down the gig.
You can also add two more Hall of Famers to last list, in Bully Ray and Bret “The Hitman” Hart. The former was confirmed in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter earlier this week, with the later also confirmed by Dave Meltzer on Friday afternoon via F4WOnline.com’s Daily Update. Bully is currently under contract with Ring of Honor, and while Hart remains open to doing whatever he wants, he recently appeared at AEW Double or Nothing to present the AEW World Championship for the first time.
