Jim Ross On What AEW Would Be Like If Vince McMahon Was In Charge

AEW announcer and Senior Advisor “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross took to his Grilling Jr podcast to address the question that is on the mind of several professional wrestling fans and that is what would AEW be like both backstage and as a product if former WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon was running things.

This is what Jim Ross said:

He probably would like less wrestling.” “Vince has never watched the first minute of AEW. I would venture to say he hasn’t watched the first minute of any wrestling show since he’s been gone.”

Jim Ross also talked about how it would be hard for Vince McMahon to run things in AEW because he has no knowledge of the product as well as the talents and that is why he wouldn’t be able to give a good feedback.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“You think he knows all about Darby Allin?” “Like he knows all about Orange Cassidy, right? ‘What’s an Orange Cassidy, JR?’ Somewhere along the way, you’ve got to watch these shows, you’ve got to take the time to invest in the characters. So, I don’t know that he would be able to give you a real good feel or good feedback. How would you tweak it without watching the product as sincerely, as thoroughly, as he should?”

Jim Ross then talked about how he doesn’t think Vince McMahon will run things again, let alone in AEW and how he is already in his mid-70s, so let him have some fun.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“I think that ship has sailed.” “I think there’s no way in hell he would. He’s got money. He’s [in his] mid-70s. Let him have some fun, for God’s sakes.”
