Veteran wrestling commentator and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently shared his insights on the potential and future prospects of Brock Anderson, a promising talent who parted ways with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in August.
Ross, who has seen generations of wrestlers come and go, expressed his firm belief that it won't be long before another promotion snaps up the young star. Brock Anderson, son of WWE Hall of Famer Arn Anderson, made his AEW debut in June 2021 amidst much anticipation.
Despite his lineage and the weight of the Anderson name, Brock's journey in the wrestling world has been challenging, with limited exposure and no significant storylines during his tenure at AEW.
Jim Ross Highlights Brock Promise
Speaking candidly on his popular 'Grilling JR' podcast, Ross delved into Brock’s departure, highlighting his potential and expressing his support.
“He’s got a lot of potential, good upside. He’s a good kid, and having been under his dad’s tutelage, he’s learned from one of the best. Brock’s going to be just fine. I have no doubt that another promotion will scoop him up soon.
He has a tremendous amount of ability and potential. I wish him nothing but the best. I’m close with his father, so naturally, I’m rooting for both of them. It’s going to be an interesting time for the Anderson family,” Ross stated, according to Fightful.
Brock's journey in wrestling may have hit a pause, but with his background and the backing of influential figures like Jim Ross, the wrestling world is keenly watching to see where this young talent will land next. His time at AEW may not have showcased his full potential, but the industry is ripe with opportunities for a wrestler of his calibre and pedigree.
As the wrestling community continues to buzz about Brock’s next move, it is clear that his journey in the squared circle is far from over, with many expecting him to make a significant impact wherever he goes next.
