Professional wrestling is ever-changing, with it going through several changes throughout the years. WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross has not minced words when it came to him disliking a few aspects of the pro wrestling we see today.
In December of last year, Ross had some harsh things to say regarding a popular spot in AEW, calling it a ‘trapeze act.’ This let to a lot of controversy, but Ross was unapologetic about what he said.
Jim Ross recently spoke on his Grilling JR podcast, where he talked about the current condition of pro wrestling. He told host Paul Bromwell that in the past, pro wrestlers were able to get more experience because of the territory system.
Ross added that modern day pro wrestlers put their bodies at risk unnecessarily with more accumulative moves. He ended it by saying the in-ring psychology is simply illogical.
“Because you learn differently, Paul, you have different strengths and you have different weaknesses, and now it seems like our kids are just trying to get their s*** in sometimes. That’s distressing to me. They put their bodies at risk unnecessarily with more accumulative moves. If one hurricanrana’s good, let’s just do three. If one tope suicida is good, let’s do three or four in a show. It’s illogical, it’s illogical. It lessens the sizzle.”
There are certainly those who are a fan of the in-ring psychology that Jim Ross dislikes.
