During a recent episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross responded to Jim Cornette stating that AEW wrestlers were too small. Here’s what he had to say:
We’re still friends. We never agreed on all kinds of things because, he’s the kind of guy that very rarely has a compromising moment. He’s very set in his ways, he knows what he likes, he knows how wrestling, in his view, should be positioned, and I’m not disagreeing with that. It’s just that sometimes the message gets a little bit, I think, course, very overly generalized. We know what we have, we know what we need. I think basically Corny is pointing out the obvious. He is not providing any information that I’ve seen that is new and revolutionary. It’s the same thing many of us say behind the scenes. There are things we need to do, but look, these kids are working their asses off, Conrad, and they’re not all giants, but you go back and look, your father in law, Ric Flair, is not a giant, he did pretty good in his career. He might be six feet, he might be. Buddy Rogers was 5’8″ or 5’9″, Jim Londos was 5’6″, go back all these years, every generation, some of the biggest, Verne Gagne was 6’0″.
