• Jim Ross Compares AEW Wrestler To 2016 WWE Hall Of Famer

On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, Jim Ross compared AEW Wrestler MJF to Old School territory legend Buddy Roberts, whom most of you will remember as a member of The Fabulous Freebirds, alongside Michael ‘P.S.’ Hayes and Terry ‘Bam Bam’ Gordy.

The Freebirds were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2016, but Roberts had already passed away in 2012.

Here’s what Good Ol’ J.R. had to say:

“I think MJF is going to be a star in any era. He understands the fundamentals of being a villain. He doesn’t want to entertain you so much as he wants to infuriate you. Cowboy (Bill Watts) would have loved him.

He may have made him a manager because of his size, but I don’t think so. MJF is as big as Buddy Roberts. Buddy Roberts headlined cards all over the world. I believe in MJF’s abilities.”
