• Jim Ross Reacts To Fans Saying Chris Jericho Is Too Old To Be AEW World Champion

During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer & current AEW commentator Jim Ross addressed those fans who think Chris Jericho is too old to be the AEW World Champion (Jericho will turn 49 in November).

Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:

“When you’re a main event guy and closing the show, you’re doing it for a reason. Hopefully that reason is because you’ve earned that spot and you can deliver. Jericho can always deliver and the issue of ageism in that he’s in his late 40s – and that’s the reason that we’re not making him the champion – that’s a lame reason.

Our champion has name identity and it’s a name that people understand and know. The other thing is that he can have a good-to-great match with just about anybody. That versatility is important for the champion to have.

He also can handle the pressure; he can do a lot of things that are gonna be required for the new AEW champion. So, I didn’t have a problem with it.”
