Jim Ross On The Issues He Has With The Current AEW Product

During the most recent episode of “Grilling JR”, Jim Ross revealed that he believes that AEW currently has too many flips and not enough traditional psychology in their wrestling matches. Here’s what he had to say:

Somebody said, ‘Well, why are you at AEW?’ Because they pay me a lot of money, and I like the people I work for, and I love wrestling and love helping these young kids. Are they doing too many flips and flops for my taste? Yeah they are to be honest with you, they sure are. But they’re weaning themselves off that a little bit because that type of wrestling is not new and fresh anymore. How many times have you seen a 450 [splash]? A 620 [splash]… Now it’s not new anymore. It’s not new!

So we’ve got to figure out something else to get the people’s attention. It might be a wrestling match; it might be using psychology and grabbing them by the emotional balls and pulling them right along in the story.
