• Jim Ross Discusses If AEW’s All Out 2021 PPV Was The Greatest PPV Of All Time
All Out 2021 pay-per-view was AEW’s most successful PPV of all time, where they managed to draw over 200,000 PPV buys.
The highlights of the PPV were CM Punk making his in-ring comeback after over 7 years, and Daniel Bryan & Adam Cole debuting in All Elite Wrestling.
During a recent edition of his podcast, AEW Commentator Jim Ross discussed if All Out was the greatest pro-wrestling pay-per-view of all time.
Here’s what Good Ol’ JR had to say:
“I thought our call at All Out was really strong. I really loved our work and the skill of Excalibur and Tony, I thought we nailed it really well.
People have to understand how hard it is for a 3-man booth to co-exist without walking all over each other and not listening. You disconnected the dots enough because you weren’t listening to what the guy said. I thought we had a really good night.
I don’t know if it’s the best pay-per-view ever, because I don’t know how you judge those things. If your opinion says that All Out was the best pay-per-view you ever saw, then that’s your opinion and you have the right to it.
The only pay-per-view that I had more fun, exhilarating, just really full of emotion and the feels were there — I’ve done a lot of great shows, but I think WrestleMania 17 was the closest thing that came to me for the emotional investment of that broadcast.
It means I had a hell of a good time, I thought the show was excellent, well booked.
Tony Khan is a good booker. Sometimes somebody’s got to realize he’s really, really smart.”
