AEW commentator and senior advisor Jim Ross spoke about the Full Gear card on the latest episode of his Grillin Jr podcast. The long-time wrestling personality also reveals that AEW will most likely be his final job in the industry. Highlights are below.
Praises how excellent the Full Gear card was:
I love the effort by everybody; everybody brought their A game. I don’t think we had any bad matches.There’s matches that one could argue might have been too long for their spot, but that’s not unusual for any PPV show. I thought the show was excellent. I thought the talent worked hard and they were focused. You know a card is good when you read a lot of feedback that says ‘This match could have closed the show, this match should have closed the show’. That tells you the show all around is going to be pretty damn good that multiple matches some fans could believe could’ve closed the show.
How he loves working with Excalibur Tony Schiavone:
It’s great to have Tony back in the game. I really enjoy working with him. It’s just good to be around him. I believe Tony makes me better, and I hope both of us make Excalibur better because he’s kind of the new kid on the block. He’s had a good first year; he’s a very smart guy. We all have a preference and our roles seem to change. I don’t care who does the play-by-play, doesn’t matter to me. If I’m in my groove and it’s my time, then I will, but it’s not something I’m trying to force myself into. All of us do our role and seem to be fairly content doing our role. I enjoy working with those dudes. It’s been a really good experience.
Believes his job with AEW will be his last in pro-wrestling:
It’s been a great experience. I’ve been very lucky to get this gig. It will be my last gig in pro wrestling – I can promise you that. But I hope it doesn’t end anytime soon.
