Jim Ross is a veteran in the pro wrestling world, as he made a name for himself as a commentator in WWE. He has delivered some of the most iconic moments in the history of pro wrestling. He also believes AEW need to address a serious issue.
Being a veteran, Jim Ross is well aware of how the pro wrestling world functions and how certain things in AEW can be perceived. The length of AEW’s pay-per-views is also an issue for many fans.
While speaking on Conrad Thompson’s Ad Free Shows, Jim Ross addressed an issue with WWE. Ross stated that the company needs to address ‘logic holes’ with its 5-hour-long pay-per-views. This comes right in time for All Out, an event with a card that most would consider annoyingly long.
“Well, I think it’s gonna be unpredictable because I don’t know how you book this card. I don’t know how you have a match on Wednesday and your champion gets his ass whipped like a government mule and then you expect to return it Sunday. Why do I need a return? You just got your ass whipped. So there’s logical things we have to address, quite frankly. I think it’s gonna be a challenging show for Tony Khan to book but it’s loaded.
Sitting out there with our group as it is, this is gonna be a 5-hour show. I’m not in favor of any 5-hour show. It’s just too long. Our attention spans are not going to maintain what it needs to be. It’s a chance for a lot talents to clear the deck and make a name for themselves.”
Jim Ross also believes Tony Khan will have difficulty booking AEW All Out. We will have to wait and see whether Tony Khan will heed Jim Ross’ words of advice or not. If anything, Jim Ross will have lots of help on commentary since Tony Khan hired so many announcers for his company.
