This week on “Grilling JR,” Jim Ross had some fun while talking about WWE NXT going head-to-head with AEW Dynamite.
Keep in mind that his take is purely made to be fun. Here is what he had to say (H/T to WrestlingNews.co):
“How’s that working? How’s that brilliant evil strategy. Oh, I will get my team together. I will make a phone call to USA Network and I will get them to put NXT head to head against this fledgling company that they will see once or twice and they will be done. It’s just the old money mark thing so, who’s the money mark? Going head to head is good in the boardroom. But at the end of the day, you bring more people to the television set that are wrestling fans at 8 o’clock on Wednesday nights because you have two brands now that the audience can sample. They can watch one. They can DVR one. They can switch back and forth. But to think it’s going to cripple it, they don’t look at the bigger picture. It’s just business. It’s been the excuse in wrestling forever. Unscrupulous, unethical situations are always justified by saying, well it’s just business. Ok, well it’s just business that we are kicking your a** every Wednesday night.”
