Jim Ross is currently working as an AEW commentator and Senior Advisor, and he recently spoke about the mistakes that he made during commentary. Jim Ross is well known for his work in WWE. He has called some of WWE’s most important matches of all time.
He has spent nearly 40 years in the professional wrestling industry and has worked as a commentator for the most part of his career. Although he is considered a legend, he did not get a pass for the mistakes that he made. He referred to Jon Moxley as the WWE Champion once and he called Paul Wight ‘The Big Show’.
Jim Ross Speaks About The Mistakes That He Has Made During Calling
On his podcast, he revealed that he did not want to make mistakes during calling again. That is the reason why he took a pause when naming Malakai Black. “I did overreact,” Ross said.
“I think it’s because I care too much sometimes. I really do. If I’m going to be called down by some geek on Twitter, have at it, folks. Think about everything, think about the big picture, think about my motivation for saying that was one of the most special nights in my career.
It’s just a pleasure to be there, and I’m getting better. “I hope working with these two announcers I had never worked with before, you’ve got three play-by-play guys at one table and somebody’s got to lead.
It’s inevitable, it’s what you do, so all I can do is work my ass off and try to improve my game. I’ll never stop trying to improve my game, but you’re exactly right, I think I do care a little more than I need to.
That’s a good catch because I caught it too, I stopped mid-f***ing sentence. Just because you hear the barbarians at the gate”. He worked at WWE during the biggest era of professional wrestling, The Attitude Era.
He was very vocal about the opportunity he received from AEW after he left the WWE. According to Ross, his current job is the best that he has ever had. “For me, it’s a very emotional thing here in AEW,” Jim Ross said.
“I’ve had a really good run, I’m very blessed. It would be a hell of a lot better run if Jan [his wife] were here, but she’s not. I never worked in a startup before, and when you come from the big dog in the yard to the start up, there’s a lot of angst and anxiety because you don’t know.
I knew that my money was going to be good because it’s guaranteed by the Khans. They pay like a slot machine, it’s on time, never had an issue, never ever had an issue. All those challenges we went through, illness, death, no audience, and I say how proud I was of [AEW Dynamite Grand Slam] because I know how far we’ve come.
I knew the uncertain roads we traveled to get to that destination. There’s no way in hell I could say to you I knew that we were going to be great and do a 20,000 people house. No, I didn’t, it exceeded my expectations.
That’s why that event was so memorable to me, the sacrifices we all made, the travel, Brodie Lee’s death, a lot of emotional things have happened in the course of life”.
