Jim Ross is one of the most respected wrestling personalities in the world and he recently spoke about his favorite AEW matches. Jim Ross joined AEW just before the promotion launched. He works for AEW as a senior advisor and he also works as a commentator.
On his podcast, he spoke about his favorite AEW matches that took place in 2020. "I loved Dustin [Rhodes] and Cody [Rhodes]," Ross said. "[The best match of the year?] The tag with the Young Bucks and FTR I liked that a lot.
I liked Brodie Lee and Cody in that dog collar match. There's a couple of Moxley matches that I thought were really good, I'm a big fan of Jon Moxley. Overall, just looking back in total, the Rhodes brothers match might be my favorite match thus far that we've done in AEW.
Jim Ross on His Favorite AEW Matches
"Live crowd, the dramatic use of blood, the story behind it. It became very personal and emotional, it wasn't a 'rasslin' storyline so to speak. It was based on reality.
They turned it on and it got me [emotionally]." JR then spoke about the time he spent in the business. He stated that there have been many matches that he has seen and called in his career. However, there are a few that really stand out.
"My induction into the Hall of Fame in 2007 in Detroit," Jim Ross said. "I was inducted by Stone Cold, we went on first, the audience was cold. I remember one of the writers said 'I need to look at your speech,' and Steve had not written anything down.
Total ad lib and it was fantastic. I can still on my mind right now, close my eyes and see [his wife] sitting in the crowd smiling from ear to ear with a bunch of my Oklahoma buddies. Probably was one of the more significant moments because it wasn't an easy ascent for me.
It wasn't easy to get to that level for my run in WWE, it was a challenge. Vince was a hard ass guy, but he paled in comparison to the hard ass guy who raised me, so I was ready. I think even though it was challenging, it made me a better guy.
There's so many great matches, Bret vs. Steve, Rock vs. Hogan, the first TLC at WrestleMania, but i think the Hall of Fame would be the shining star in all of that."
