Another AEW Star Seemingly Responds To Jim Ross Criticism

Another All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star has seemingly weighed in the criticism of certain modern wrestling tropes from the promotion’s own Jim Ross.

Dax Harwood of FTR, who has made his ‘traditional’ approach and mentality to pro-wrestling very clear, has had his say on Twitter, and he definitely seems to be on JR’s side.

He tweeted:

Imagine not listening to criticism from the men & women who’ve shaped our profession, and paved a road that allows you to make a living today; all because they hurt your feelings.

This comes after Jim Ross had spoken on his podcast to criticise wrestlers who all huddle together on the outside to catch a diving opponent.

Brandon Cutler then decided it was a good idea to jokingly use JR’s direct quote in a tweet to promote the upcoming 14-man tag match on Dynamite, writing:

We’re gonna go outside, cluster up like coils, stand there in a huddle, friends and foes together, side-by-side to catch some leaping idiot going over the top.

It also emerged over the weekend that an AEW wrestler had given this comment to

“Look I know there is a lot that JR can teach us but burying us on the show or on his podcast is only going to make some of us ignore what he says. I grew up watching JR and he is the best and we love it that he calls our matches but maybe find a different way to criticize the wrestlers in the ring. Everyone is doing what they have been taught. I agree that sometimes things need to be slowed down but that won’t happen when the guy who is supposed to help put us over is going out there and publicly burying us.”
