Hall of Famer Jim Ross has responded to WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins, who called AEW the “minor leagues” on October 21st when asked if he would face Kenny Omega. You can see that full interaction here.
This was the latest in a long line of jabs back and forth between WWE and AEW since the companies inception. Legendary commentator Jim Ross sis not take the comments light; on the latest episode of Grilling JR he had the following to say:
” I’m pissed off about it… It doesn’t do any favours for our business… I’m not inferring that Seth thinks he’s bigger than the business. But, by what he says sometimes, you can make that assessment, rightly or wrongly. It’s not a classy thing to say for an athlete of his designation.
Rollins is in a great spot… maybe someday he’ll be as over as his girlfriend. I don’t know. I’ve always liked his work. He’s a solid guy. But saying things like that makes him look bad. I feel bad for him. I was upset at Seth because I thought his comments made him sound bad. Made him sound bush league, like he was born on third base, woke up, and thought he hit a triple. I don’t know what’s happened to some of these guys. I don’t know if it’s internal, what they’re driven to say, what they’re obligated to say. They think it’ll gain favour of their bosses. I don’t know what the answer is.”
