Jim Ross is a WWE Hall of Famer and was the voice of several generations of fans, as he gave decades of his life to the business. Ross has been part of numerous iconic moments in the business, and he continues to be respected even now. It appears he revealed something interesting about himself recently.
Good ol’ JR has worked in promotions such as Mid-South Wrestling, JCP, WCW, WWE, NJPW, and AEW, but Impact Wrestling fans didn’t get the same honor.
He is currently happy in AEW and has been a staple of AEW programming since the beginning. While speaking on the latest episode of Grilling JR, Ross compared the time he served as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations at WWE with that of his predecessor J. J. Dillon. Ross claimed that he was more aggressive in WWE than he is now in AEW.
I was probably more aggressive,” Ross said. “I was a lot more in recruiting and looking at tapes and surrounding myself with guys who could go out and had life goals. If I wanted an amateur guy, if we saw an amateur someplace, like a Brock Lesnar for example, I’d stick Gerry Briscoe on them, because Gerry Briscoe came from that amateur wrestling world of Oklahoma State.
Jim Ross is currently healthy again and is back as part of the commentary team for AEW Collision. We’ll have to wait and see how he will handle his role again in the coming weeks.
