• Jim Ross On Which AEW Wrestler Is The Closest Thing To Stone Cold Steve Austin
During a recent edition of his Grilling JR podcast, current AEW Commentator Jim Ross compared former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley (fka Dean Ambrose in WWE) to Old School WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“[Jon] Moxley is the closest thing I’ve seen in pro wrestling like Stone Cold, since Stone Cold. Attitude, body english, facial expressions, legitimate intensity, absolutely phenomenal.
[Moxley] is not one of those guys that doesn’t know how to do a TV match, but we’ve got some young guys who haven’t had that opportunity. Now they’re continuing to get that experience. When you work 30 something shows in Daily’s Place and many without an audience, you’ve got to pick it up and I think our guys are doing that.
I’m just in love with our roster, the guys are having so much fun. Our audience because they’re younger, they come prepared. They have their signs, posters, it reminds me of the Attitude Era as far as audience participation.
It’s a really good time to be a wrestling fan no matter which brand you support. I’m a really big believer in if you’re a wrestling fan, be a wrestling fan of all of them.
Don’t go out of your way to piss on something that’s not on fire. It’s a great time to be a fan.”
