Cody Rhodes: AEW star ‘surprised’ at online criticism for Jim Ross

Last updated

AEW EVP and former TNT Champion Cody Rhodes recently spoke to Inside The Ropes. The former WWE Superstar discussed several topics during the interview, including some of the negative discourse online against AEW commentator Jim Ross.

“Well, I think people forget that JR is one of the most over people on the show” Cody Rhodes began. “Our generation, speaking specifically about my generation, no other generations, we all think that we’re just it.”

“I’m always surprised to see how much flak he gets online” Rhodes continued. “He’s an older guy who decided to jump ship, join us, take a chance on this.”

One of the biggest mistakes made by Ross recently was his “WWE Dynamite” line, although for someone of his age who worked at that company for such a massive amount of time is understandable.

“I mean, he’s going to probably retire his jersey here, take this huge chance, this massive gamble when he had a legacy and a job for life elsewhere’ Rhodes added.

Here’s the current lineup for the next episode of AEW Dynamite: Homecoming.

  • TNT Championship Match ’“ Miro (c) vs Lee Johnson
  • Cody Rhodes vs Malakai Black
  • The Bunny vs Leyla Hirsch
  • Christian Cage vs The Blade
  • The Trials of Jericho: Chris Jericho vs Juventud Guerrera ’“ Jericho must win with a move from the top rope
