Jim Ross Fires Back At Fans Who Criticized His Commentary

All Elite Wrestling Commentator and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross recently took to his Grilling JR Podcast to talk about a number of topics, including responding to those fans who criticized his commentary skills, while also tagging his boss, AEW CEO Tony Khan, on Twitter.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“The guy has a right to his opinion first of all.” “I’m not pissed at him; he’s meaningless to me. But the issue is, he had to tag in Tony. Tony Khan reads his tweets, especially on those taped show nights. He’s all over the damn thing. [The person tweeting] knows Tony is going to read it in hopes of making me look bad.”

“There’s where I get an issue. To your ears, I did suck. If I did, I’ll do better. You’re going to single out Tony to make sure Tony hears that a fan had a negative reaction to my work? I thought that was pure chicken s–t. It’s just amazing to me the society we live in.”

Jim Ross then talked about quitting if he felt like he embarrassed himself or he didn’t do his job the way he intends to do it. Ross also talked about being somebody in the business since the 70s, but hasn’t lost his passion.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“The day that I embarrass myself, that I can’t keep up or articulate what we’re seeing, when I can’t process the stories talents are telling, [I’ll quit].” “To talk about somebody’s effort, or that they don’t have any passion, how the hell can you say that? Are you just that God d–n stupid that you believe that somebody that’s been in the business since the 70s has completely lost his passion? Does he f–king not realize this is my God d–n life?”

“For somebody to tell me on Twitter that I’ve lost my passion is total horse sh–. It kind of hurts your feelings. It just pisses you off. If you want to express yourself as a fan, have at it. But when you’re getting personal, don’t go there. I think these people would say things on Twitter that they never ever would say to your face.”

Jim Ross then talked about the Street Fight that took place between Best Friends and Ortiz and Santana. JR said that a lot of wrestlers would be reluctant to even attempt the things these four wrestlers did and they went to a level that a lot of guys don’t want to go. Jim Ross then said that they just raised their worth in that one match.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“The thing about that match was, those two teams, they did things that a lot of wrestlers would be reluctant to even attempt.” “These guys just showed amazing physical toughness. They went to a level that a lot of guys don’t want to go. I thought they just raised their worth in that one match. I thought they became more valuable to AEW based on what we saw in that street fight.”
