Jim Ross On Which Top AEW Star Runs Ideas By Him All The Time

AEW Senior Advisor and commentator “Good Ole’ J.R.” Jim Ross recently took to his Grilling JR podcast to talk about how top AEW Star Chris Jericho always has a say in everything he does, which is a great thing. JR also talked about how another top AEW Star Darby Allin has a great mind and how they have a great relationship as well as how he runs ideas by him all the time.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“Chris Jericho has a hand in everything he does.” “And thank god for it. I’ll tell you another guy that we have, Darby Allin has a great mind. I’m very privileged to have the opportunities to have private conversations with Darby. We have a very good relationship and he runs ideas by me all the time. Some of them I agree with, and some of them I don’t. The good thing he knows is he’s going to get an honest opinion from me. He’s a good kid and he’s learning early, the more input you can have in your creativity, you increase your odds for success.”

JR then talked about how in today’s pro wrestling storylines are more being based on reality than the supernatural and fantasy stuff.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“It seems to me like in today’s world of pro wrestling, the reality based stuff is hitting a cord more than the fantasy stuff.” “Hypnotizing people, zombies. Everything for the name and sake of entertainment is a weak ass excuse. ‘Oh, we’re just trying to entertain the audience,’ that’s such a p**** way out of it. Keep drinking that kool-aid buddy, save your money. It’s just not the way to engulf an audience, the audience has got to relate to something and every character that you put on television.”

JR then talked about how despite Dustin Rhodes is 50 years of age he is still better than majority of the AEW roster as well as how he was his best when he portrayed the Goldust character.

This is what Jim Ross said:

“He’s 50 now for god sakes and he’s better than 98% of the people working on TV every week.” “I think he had his best days as Goldust. He owned that character and made it his. Everything else was in his dad’s image. I saw more creative happiness in Dustin than when he was Goldust, refining and getting that character together then any other time.”
