Jim Ross Claims AEW Referees Are Being “Abused”

Speaking on his Grillin’ JR podcast, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) lead commentator Jim Ross has claimed that the referees within the promotion are being “abused”.

On his podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer really put over the AEW officials and claimed that they are being unfairly picked on. He also revealed some of the advice that he has given the referees:

“I think the referees are being abused. You know we’ve got nice people refereeing in AEW. Good, hardworking. I get on their ass sometimes, but they all know I mean well by it, and they know that I’m the only who’s gone to try and help them with their work in the ring. They appreciate that. It doesn’t mean that I’m right.

“Here’s an example I was telling refs the other day, you know when you back someone into the corner, when a guy has someone in the turnbuckle, and you’ve got another opponent, his opponent is standing in front of them. You’ve got to break, they need to be broken [up], where do you stand? You stand on the left of the person you’re behind. You know why you do that? Because most of them are right-handed and you wanna be out of the line of fire and not with an elbow in your teeth.”
