Jim Ross Talks ‘Extraordinary’ AEW Television Ratings for Darby Allin

Last updated

AEW commentator Jim Ross recently discussed the ratings success of Darby Allin as TNT Champion on the latest episode of Grilling JR.

‘I was surprised that we did as well as we did,’ Jim Ross began, talking about the first AEW Dynamite show that went up unopposed a couple of weeks ago. ‘I thought we might do [900,000], I thought that was being generous. But to do 1.2 million, that was pretty phenomenal.”

“Hopefully we will earn the trust and the dedication from the audience and the only way we’re going to do that is to have a hell of a show every week” JR continued. “Is that possible? I don’t know, but I know the effort will be there.”

‘A lot of our young talents are getting better, they’re getting over,’ Ross claimed. ‘I think they’re getting better and assuming their roles better. Look at the ratings, quarter hour ratings for Darby Allin were extraordinary and he’s a home grown talent.”

JR then finished by praising Darby Allin further. “Some people say you can’t make stars in this generation, but you can if you do it right and the talent executes and creates a unique presentation and certainly Darby Allin is a unique competitor, he reminds me a lot of Jeff Hardy.’
