    "Good ol' J.R." Jim Ross took to his Grilling J.R.podcast this week to open up about why exactly he chose to sign a contract with All Elite Wrestling earlier this year. Ross admitted to listeners that money and the people involved with the company were major deciding factors when he signed, however, he would prefer the in-ring action to have less "flips and flops".

    "Somebody said, 'Well, why are you at AEW?' Because they pay me a lot of money, and I like the people I work for, and I love wrestling and love helping these young kids," J.R. said. "Are they doing too many flips and flops for my taste? Yeah they are to be honest with you, they sure are. But they're weaning themselves off that a little bit because that type of wrestling is not new and fresh anymore. How many times have you seen a 450 [splash]? A 620 [splash]... Now it's not new anymore. It's not new!"

    Ross believes that using a more traditional approach and incorporating psychology to engage the viewer will ultimately be the style that AEW builds itself around.


    "So we've got to figure out something else to get the people's attention," J.R. explained. "It might be a wrestling match; it might be using psychology and grabbing them by the emotional balls and pulling them right along in the story."

    J.R. signed a 3-year deal earlier this year as a Senior Advisor for AEW. The statement issued out at that time called his contract "the most lucrative deal in pro wrestling commentary history".

    He isn't wrong. :manny:

    Everyone does a suicide dive.

    Everyone does the Handstand Springboard Back Elbow/Insert other move here that Carlito started.

    Everyone pretty much wrestles the same. Announcers look stupid when they comment on the athleticism of Wrestler A when Wrestler B just did the same fukking thing and they're quiet.


    We've actually lost the Technician archetype. Hell Daniel Bryan used to be big on this and he ain't even fukkin' with that shyt anymore.

    AEW needs a Stan Hansen/Dr. Death Steve Williams type big brawler w/a bit of mat wrestling to mix it up

    I think AEW will let wrestlers sink or swim on their own merits and so they will come to find what actually works in 2020

    The moment I see someone in AEW put a guy in a headlock, wristlock, or toe hold and hold him down for 5 minutes..... or do that famous E spot where some how both wrestlers are laid out on the ground for 3-5 mins.


    I’m done with this shyt:hhh:

    Will be strictly NJPW, ROH, HOG and I’ll find a way to watch Impact:wow:

    Them days are gone. Even Dijak, Lee, and Charlotte are doing flips and they don't have to since they are so much bigger than their peers.

    Seems now that kayfabe is dead, everyone wants to prove that they are a real athlete except for the people with a MMA or Boxing past.

    Lee is billed at 6'2 and 320 lbs while Dijak is billed at 6'7 and 270 lbs. Even if those are just kayfabed numbers, those two are still tall enough or weigh enough to never have to leave the ground if they didn't want to.

    No, it's not new anymore.... but what's left? Bloodsport?

    I'll admit, though. American Wrassling could use some NJPW style hossfighting.

    Imagine JR calling Lucha Underground matches

    Say what you want about aew but I have more faith in the people running it than coke boy calling the shots. Look at all the talent AEW has behind the scenes, AEW is only going to get better and better IMO.
