On the most recent episode of “Grilling JR” with Conrad Thompson. Jim Ross commented on Vince McMahon attempting to stop AEW’s growth.
“Obviously McMahon was very interested in making sure that WCW did not grow,” Ross said. “Its akin to what he’s doing now with AEW. Just to do what he can to prevent the growth of the brand. Unfortunately for him, he picked a time where his business is somewhat uninteresting to a lot of people based on the ratings. Timing for him on this one is not real good.”
