WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross spoke about the criticism he has received online since becoming an AEW announcer and more on the latest edition of Grilling JR.
Here is what he had to say:
“There’s a young audience that’s criticizing my work, and I don’t have a problem of them criticizing my work, everybody’s opinion is as good as the next guy, that’s one thing. I don’t want the people who follow me on Twitter to jump on, and beat up on some people, because you look at their Twitter information, they have a picture, they are young kids, younger kids, teenagers, early 20s, and they have anywhere from zero to 20 followers. So it’s not as if these people are learned, experienced, long term fans to the level that they can critique somebody, but you gotta, you try to be nice to them, or make fun, not make fun, but have some fun with it. I had a little girl that said I should retire, and I said, ‘Well, would you buy me a nice retirement gift?’ What are you gonna do, but it’s how it is.”
