During his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross discussed the Street Fight between Best Friends and Proud & Powerful.
"People are still buzzing about that street fight we had, which I thought was one of the most amazing performances I had called in a long, long time. The courage those dudes showed was extraordinary. They were bleeding from places you normally don't see a pro wrestler bleed. You don't get taught in wrestling school or the indies to learn to survive in that environment.
"I thought those kids did a hell of a job, [and they] really impressed me. It kind of underscores what the company is about - young guys looking for their break, looking to create their legacy, get over, sell merch, and increase their lot in AEW. The effort is always there for us. One thing that I think any fan can say is that those guys and gals at AEW are going to give you effort, they're going to give you their money's worth. To me, that's worth a lot."
