Jim Ross says AEW still has too many flips and flops.

Talked about incorporating stories and psychology more.

Quote:
"Good ol' J.R." Jim Ross took to his Grilling J.R. podcast this week to open up about why exactly he chose to sign a contract with All Elite Wrestling earlier this year. Ross admitted to listeners that money and the people involved with the company were major deciding factors when he signed, however, he would prefer the in-ring action to have less "flips and flops".

"Somebody said, 'Well, why are you at AEW?' Because they pay me a lot of money, and I like the people I work for, and I love wrestling and love helping these young kids," J.R. said. "Are they doing too many flips and flops for my taste? Yeah they are to be honest with you, they sure are. But they're weaning themselves off that a little bit because that type of wrestling is not new and fresh anymore. How many times have you seen a 450 [splash]? A 620 [splash]... Now it's not new anymore. It's not new!"

Ross believes that using a more traditional approach and incorporating psychology to engage the viewer will ultimately be the style that AEW builds itself around.

"So we've got to figure out something else to get the people's attention," J.R. explained. "It might be a wrestling match; it might be using psychology and grabbing them by the emotional balls and pulling them right along in the story."

He has a point, but another problem in AEW right now is that JR also gets into the habit of breaking kayfabe when commentating these days. Talking about psychology during a match...UMMM hello? Jim? You're on TV again? You're supposed to pretend they're actually fighting?

They've only done three live tv shows. There will be hits and misses. It's part of their learning curve.

I'm not usually open with criticising Jim Ross these days due to the crap he has been through. I only wish him some kind of happiness. I can only admire him for calling that Wrestlemania match between taker and roman after his wife passed away.

Saying that, Jim certainly isnt the commentator that he was. Its just the reality.

Re: Jim Ross says AEW still has to many flips and flops.

They have just the right amount of flip flops IMO - less toned down that the PPVs between Bucks and Lucha - but still enough to not be boring

My NEW FREE game Pop The Cork is now available on Android

It is the BETA version, so please let me know what you think! Thanks!!

Re: Jim Ross says AEW still has to many flips and flops.

People said the same thing about the WCW cruiserweights before they took off and carried that program.

There will always be people who feel this way, which is fine. To me in 3 weeks the only match that was overly spotty to a crazy extent was PP/Bucks but that was also probably the best match in the 1st 3 weeks of Dynamite.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.
