Jim Ross recently talked about a wide range of topics on his Grilling JR podcast.
During it, the AEW commentator spoke about The Acclaimed’s rise in AEW and why they are his favorite team in wrestling:
“Pleasantly surprised they’ve gotten over. They’re two good kids, and they have the right attitude. They’re valuable assets to AEW, and they got themselves over. Simple as that, they got over. How they got over is there to be discussed, but I’m happy for them. They’re good kids, and they have great futures. There’s no doubt. I’m not against the [scissor me, Daddy Ass] chants. It works, and they’re selling merch. Fans are reacting to it. It’s pretty amazing. It’s amazing to me what gets over. Six months ago, if you say here’s the scissor thing and we’re gonna build on it, I’d say, ‘You’re crazy, that’s not gonna work.’ It just goes to show you that you never know exactly what’s gonna get over, and the scissor me campaign has gotten over. It’s trendy, and right now, it’s working. Keep it going, keep it rolling. You’ve got some momentum, you’re over the hump, and now just make your game in-ring better. Those two kids are good athletes. I like this team a lot. I don’t know if I have a more favorite team in wrestling right now. To me, they’re the best.”
