Jim Ross Responds To Criticism Of His Commentary For Jungle Boy

On the latest episode of Grillin JR. AEW commentator Jim Ross addressed critics of his commentary for Jungle Boy.

“I did, I succumbed to it and he said, ‘JR, it’s time to hang up your black hat.’ It shows you how misguided some fans are. They say they love wrestling, but those of us who have dedicated our lives to the business get no breaks and a lot of this is over—I’m a big fan of Jungle Boy—big time. I think he’s gonna be a big star for us. He’s a great kid, very athletic and I’ve been calling him Jungle Boy Jack Perry since day one. That’s like I call Steve Austin ‘The Texas Rattlesnake’ or The Rock ‘The Brahma Bull,’ ‘The Great One,’ whatever. They’re just nicknames that come to my head and sometimes they stick and sometimes they don’t, but for God’s sake, Conrad, is it a peaceful offense to say ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack Perry?”

“So for you attention-starved little bastards out there that knock my work, have at it. I don’t care. All I’m gonna do is the best job I can, and quite frankly, and I know this is going to sound very poor of me, I think our three-man team is evolving into one of the better teams in the business, period, but I’m bias.”

“Everybody’s a booker, man. Everybody’s a creative genius, everybody’s a booker. They got enough knowledge to be dangerous and this is a very sensitive time in our business for all the information flow on social media gives people the right, in their view, to profess to be somewhat experts. You’re not! You’re a fan! So, differentiate the two things. You’re not an expert, I’m an expert. You’re not an expert, Conrad’s an expert. I’m trying to give ‘Jungle Boy’ Jack even more personality, he’s gonna be a player, man. What is he gonna do when he’s 35? Is he still gonna be ‘Jungle Boy’ or ‘Jungle Man?’ Or ‘Jungle Boy Jack?’ I don’t know what he’s gonna be, but right now in my mind’s eye, I’m giving you all I can because I wanted to get him over and that’s what we did Wednesday night. Our goal is to create new stars and to get these guys over.”
