Jim Ross Wants To Recruit Big Athletic Guys For AEW
Posted By: Carol Cassada on Feb 21, 2020
During a recent episode of his podcast Grilling JR, Jim Ross discussed the possiblity of recruiting big athletic guys for AEW.
Here's what he had to say:
Wanting to recruit “big athletic guys”:
Size, athletic big guys. I’m a big fan of Lance Archer, Jeff Cobb, Luke Harper. Guys like that have the ability that we can all see that have not been given the total opportunity to become a global star. I like those kinds of guys because they have an athletic background, that means to me that since they were a kid, they were competitive, that’s important.
This business is not easy. Finding athletes to become pro wrestlers is not a bad formula, it worked for generations in our country since Bronko Nagurski (NFL hall of famer), he quit playing football at the height of his career to wrestle full time because he made more money wrestling at that point. If you want to fine tune that, maybe athletic big heels. We’ve got a great roster of baby faces, none of them are giants, that means nothing.
Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson were not giants, they were giants in the ring, they drew money, people loved them and that’s what you find in the Young Bucks. We need heels, big heels. We may have too many baby faces by last count, so I think athletic big men is something that they’re interested in finding.
