During his appearance on WINCLY, Jim Ross gave his thoughts on AEW talent being critical of the WWE on air. Here’s what he had to say:
I don’t know why it would be unwise if they are being honest and expressing their own opinions and giving opinions. The wrestling business has been a microcosm of society. We rather analyze a half-empty glass than a half-full glass. If something happens on TV and social media lights up because JR mispronounced a name, then it’s ‘Oh he’s slipping. He should be out of there.’ Or if somebody botched a move, s**t like that just absolutely is inflammatory and a self-motivational thing. ‘I need to get some attention on social media, so this is what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna bitch about everything I can think of and knock this company.’ That tells me you’re really not a wrestling fan; you’re a fan of your own ego. Real wrestling fans are gonna give constructive criticism and not just will somebody to hell.
