• AEW Personality Says Jon Moxley Is Like Stone Cold Steve Austin
While speaking on his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross talked about unqualified wrestlers in the pro-wrestling business today.
Below is what he said
“That’s the thing about non-students of the game. It’s like when you see a wrestler today that all he knows how to do is acrobatics and slap his body, his thigh, his leg, his arm. That is what it is believed to be the way of the world today and I say it’s bullsh*t.
Somebody is playing the role of a pro-wrestler or more specifically, what they perceive a pro-wrestler to be and that is an acrobat, a leg slapper and they take out the emotional investment that you want your audience to make in you.
There are a lot of issues right now in pro-wrestling that are trends. You see guys not going down that trend. Jon Moxley is a guy that is kind of a Stone Cold guy. He has basic fundamental hardness, intensity, physicality, and you can tell by his face he is a badass. He likes the competition and the combat.
But you have other guys out there that you know what you are going to get. Most of them don’t know how to counter a hammerlock. But that’s how they were taught. Then some of the guys who have had some success on the indies and in all of these companies, and did good in front of 400 people. That’s it. So now they think they had the audience in the palm of their hand, all 400 of them.
Well, it’s good that all your belief that your entire audience was for you. By the way, they weren’t. They aren’t. They never will be. There is a difference between doing a nationally televised match and doing a match at a small venue of 400 people.”
