Jim Ross reveals which AEW star is ‘most like’ Stone Cold Steve Austin

Last updated

AEW commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently discussed the potential of AEW star Jon Moxley on the Grilling JR Podcast.

Ross would say that Moxley is the talent that ‘most reminds him’ of Stone Cold Steve Austin. ‘[Jon] Moxley is the closest thing I’ve seen in pro wrestling like Stone Cold, since Stone Cold,’ Jim Ross would begin on the podcast.

‘Attitude, body English, facial expressions, legitimate intensity, absolutely phenomenal’ Ross continued, praising the former WWE Champion for his abilities.

‘[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,’ Ross mentioned.

‘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” the AEW commentator noted.

Jim Ross would finish by praising the AEW roster and how they’ve managed to draw a younger audience to the product, akin to what the WWF and WCW brands did with the Attitude Era.

‘I’m just in love with our roster, the guys are having so much fun” Ross said. “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” Jim Ross concluded. “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.’
