• Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega React To Jim Ross Calling Randy Orton The Best Wrestler In The World Today
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, Jim Ross revealed that he believes WWE Legend Randy Orton is currently the best wrestler in the world today.
Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“If he’s not, of course it’s subjective and only my opinion, there’s a lot of good ones out there right now, I don’t think anybody is any better than Randy Orton in the wrestling business. Of course that’s so subjective.
I love Randy’s work, although I don’t watch it regularly enough to make a great evaluation, in the last several months that I have tuned in to watch some of Randy’s segments, he doesn’t disappoint.
No matter how the creative is packaged to him, he doesn’t disappoint.
I’m sure there’s Kenny Omega fans out there that would say Omega is the best wrestler in the world. Some will, and they got the right to their opinion and I’m not going to argue it. Omega is really frickin’ good.
In any event, it’s a good time to be a fan.
A lot of great talent out there, improving their game, adapting and adding things.”
After hearing JR’s opinion, AEW Superstar Chris Jericho tweeted the following:
“In my opinion Kenny Omega is the best wrestler in the world today. Others may feel differently, but I’ve been in the ring with everybody currently working on top & there’s nobody close. That’s why Kenny is AEW Champ – the most protected title in the biz. It’s Impossible to argue.”
Omega then replied the following to Jericho:
“Meh. I’d rather believe the bigot cuck, dimwit e-drones, and the guy that thinks I’m the WWE Champion.”

For those who didn’t get it, Omega is referring to Jim Cornette as “bigot cuck”, WWE fans as “dimwit e-drones” and Jim Ross as “the guy that thinks I’m the WWE Champion”.
